Sent to all veterinary inspectors
February 8, 2011
We inform you about the protest that was held in Zagreb on January 15, 2011 in order to get your attention to the necessity and legal obligation of implementing the Animal Protection Act. The protest was supported by many citizens and media that transmitted the message that the four years since the law took effect local communities comply with their legal obligations.
We also wish to inform you that the Shelter for abandoned animals of the City of Zagreb in Dumovec marks its tenth anniversary. You can read more about its accomplishments and work in the enclosed document.
We also wish to remind you that we request you to make binding solutions which will be ordered to the local government about the establishment of shelters where they don't exist because of the expiration of statutory deadlines, in accordance with Article 55 and the application of Article 69 paragraph 5 of Animal Protection Act (Official Gazzette No. 135/06).
We can offer you additional materials about the Network Against Animal Aabandoning and also invite you to an organized visit to the shelter in Dumovec, with the head of the shelter Tatjana Zajec and the representative of Animal Friends as guides.
President of Animal Friends
