“Veganism can open up new horizons and make our diets healthier and more diverse while also helping the environment and the animals. So give in to your curiosity and use every opportunity you can to make your life more interesting and compassionate with vegan dishes and products.” – Igor Barberic, Croatian director and choreographer

Explosive Substances Act
Veganism looks good on everyone
- We reported a case of animal abuse involving a dog being thrown out of a 6th floor apartment in Kutina, which resulted in the animal’s death. We also reported to the authorities the case of five piglets who have been enclosed in an old van for the last two months. The police informed us that they have sent a veterinary inspection to investigate the case.
- Once again, we warned about the entrapment of wildlife in various “zoo-prisons” all over Croatia, reporting the “Anita” catering establishment in Zaton Obrovački to the Ministry of Agriculture. Thanks to a fast and commendable reaction of the veterinary inspection, the animals will no longer be exposed to visitors and the ill ostrich and crane will be properly treated. We also hope further action will be taken.
- We sent a letter to all counties, cities, and municipalities offering free use of our visual campaign “Family to the beach, dog to the streets?”, which aims to spread awareness of the mandatory microchipping of dogs. The letter also includes a draft of the leaflet on the legal obligations of dog owners, which is to be printed and distributed to all citizens, along with the public utility charges bill or in some other way.
- Czech president Miloš Zeman signed an amendment to the Czech Animal Protection Act banning fur farming in the Czech Republic! The ban on fur farming should also come into effect in Bosnia and Herzegovina next year, while Serbia will follow in 2019.
- New on the Web:
a) New bearers of the European V-Label: Termo-pak, Zdrava navika, Protect Pharma.
We would like to thank everyone for their much-needed support, membership and continuous participation in our activities. Enjoy the summer, but don’t get into any mischief, now! We need you safe and sound at the ZeGeVege Festival! 😀
