Animal Friends invites for a visit to the Shelter for Abandoned Animals of the City of Zagreb in Dumovec
Animal Friends, in cooperation with the City shelter for abandoned animals in Dumovec, as part of the campaign "Family to the Seaside, Dog to the Street?" against abandoning animals before the summer holidays invites to the action "Open Days of the Shelter" in order to invite townsmen of Zagreb to adopt stray dogs.
On Wednesday, July 26, 2006, at 12 noon, we invite to a press conference on which we will send a public appeal to promote the adopting of abandoned animals. The conference will take place in the Pound for Abandoned Animals of the City of Zagreb in Dumovec. Tatjana Juric and Viktor Drago will also speak about the cruel practice of animal neglection.
A short presentation of the shelter's reconstruction will be shown at the press conference and visitors will be able to see the progress of its reconstruction. Also, interested citizens will be invited to visit the shelter and see the dogs who are longing for a home.
Caring about abandoned animals is not only concern of "animal lovers" and societies, but this is an issue all citizens of Croatia and local and state governments should take care of. Animals - as innocent victims should not pay the price of human negligence.
We condemn people who are so careless and irresponsible to cause suffering to and death of animals and leave them up to others to care for them.
Precisely due to the abandoning of animals before summer holidays there is a huge number of stray dogs in animal shelters and private accommodations, but also on the city streets. They all wait for compassionate individuals who will take them under their roof and give them a home.
