‘Anyone who is able to abandon an animal cannot be good to people either.’ – Rene Bitorajac, Croatian actor
‘There is no justification for abandoning animals. One can always organize some sort of pet sitting. Besides, the sea is good for the dogs.’ – Igor Mesin, Croatian TV host

Refurbishing the New Office Space
We are moving from Gajeva 47 to Jurisiceva 25. In order to finish everything in time, we only have another month to complete refurbishing the space. We are in a dire need of all kinds of sponsorship for refurbishing and decorating our new office and there is not much time left. Please click here to see how you can help us.
- We participated on an international seminar on Positive lists for exotic animals in Europe, organized by Eurogroup for Animals.
- We visited the mayor of Zagreb Milan Bandic and thanked him with a cake for making the new office space available to us. We used this opportunity to appeal to him to permit companion animals to travel with city trams and buses.
