Performance on the occasion of World Vegan Day

performance for World Vegan Day
On the November 2, at Ban Jelačić Square we organised a bloody performance on the occasion of World Vegan Day. With the performance, we wanted to portray the responsibility of each individual for their own choice of food on their plate and remind everyone that eating animals and animal products is neither necessary nor justified. On the occasion of World Vegan Day, we are inviting everyone to spread information about the numerous benefits of a vegan lifestyle and to recommend the Veggie Challenge at to their friends. Once subscribed they will receive free fun facts and recipes for next 30 days. See the photo gallery of the performance.

President of Croatia with representatives of associations
On Saturday 27th October 2018, at the Office of the President of the Republic of Croatia, Ms Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović at Pantovčak, there was an Open Doors Day with the theme „Adopt, do not buy“, dedicated to animals in shelters. With other associations from the Animal Protection Network, we presented the work on the implementation of Animal Protection Act and taking care of animals. Associations commended the Office of the President for pointing out to the problem of abandoned animals and for encouraging cities and municipalities to prescribe permanent sterilisation (spaying/neutering), as well as encouraging citizens to adopt dogs and cats instead of buying them.


Anniversary of Animal Protection Act

anniversary of Animal Protection Act
On Friday 26th October 2018 at 11 am, precisely on the day the Animal Protection Law came to force in 2017, we organised an impressive action with volonteers and activists from the Animal Protection Network. Together with four-legged friends who are searching for home and banners with shocking photographs we pointed out to the need for all local communities to conduct control of dog microchipping and to prescribe permanent sterilisation (spaying/neutering) as a breeding control of dogs and cats.
