“If you love animals, don’t eat them.” – Bryan Adams
The Life of Every Child is Important!
On the occasion of International Workers’ Day we posted billboards with a photo of a lamb heading for slaughter with the message: “The Life of Every Child is Important!” The goal of this message is to point out the fact that many animal children are killed in order to satisfy the human habit of eating meat and to call for compassion and respect for the life of every child or grown-up individual.
The Animal Welfare Pledge
We invited all candidates for European Parliament elections which took place last weekend to sign the Animal Welfare Pledge and thus state that animal protection is present in their agenda. You can see Croatian candidates who signed the Pledge here.
Floods in Croatia
Together with the Association Victories and many other animal protection associations, individuals and volunteers, we mobilized all our forces in saving animals from flooded areas. Rescue actions were slow and hard to conduct because of the lack of professional rescuers, so this is why we even more need to thank all the volunteers, the police, the military, the divers, and the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service for their sacrifice, courage and good will to bring so many animals to safety. As volunteers in Posavina are at the brink of their strength, and no one takes responsibility for the rescued animals, we sent out a joint public appeal with Association Vitcories to the government and public institutions to take responsibility for the rescued animals. Photos of rescued animals can be seen on our Facebook photo galleries and the video on YouTube.
