Animalist no. 208

„I hope someday everyone will care about all animals, not just the “cute and cuddly” ones” – Joanne McArthur

Bind me with love, not a chain

The petition for a total ban on keeping dogs on the chain has so far been signed by more than 50,000 people. We thank everyone for their support and ask the citizens to write to the Government at and the Minister of Agriculture at asking for a complete legal ban on keeping dogs on a chain ”. The campaign was supported by many celebrities such as Tereza Kesovija, Mia Dimšić, Saša Lozar, Marija Omaljev, Zdenka Kovačiček and many others.

Movie Save Ralph

We have announced that the animated film “Save Ralph”, released by the Humane Society International, has been released as part of the campaign for a final ban on animal testing of cosmetics. In it, rabbit Ralph describes his daily routine as one of many “testers” in the laboratory. Taika Waititi stars as the voice of the titular rabbit and the rest of the cast includes Ricky Gervais, Zac Efron and other famous actors. We ask everyone to buy only vegan cosmetics that have not been tested on animals in order to finally ban testing on animals.

We can save Earth by veganism

After the documentary “Cowspiracy” which deals with industrial animal husbandry and how it affects the environment, a new documentary “Seaspiracy” was released. The film tells the story of the harsh reality of commercial fishing and leaves no one indifferent! On the occasion of Earth Day on April 22, we invited everyone to watch both documentaries, sign up for the Veggie Challenge and by changing their diet directly help stop the systematic destruction of our only planet.

And the Association of Chain Prohibition Cities

The Association of Cities, whose goal is to encourage cooperation between local self-government units and promote the common interests of cities in the Republic of Croatia, gave their support to the national campaign for “For Croatia without dogs on a chain”. They emphasized that for years they have been advocating for a more humane treatment of animals, and protecting their welfare, as well as imposing measures and punishments on perpetrators of various acts of abuse and / or inhumane keeping of animals.
