A Tough Beginning of the Year
We would like to inform you that a successful year is behind us, with lots of achievements, about which you can inform yourself in in our online newsletter AnimaList.
However and in spite of all our efforts, we sadly inform you that during 2014 Animal Friends Croatia (AFC) could not raise enough funds to cover all the expenses it incurred as a result of the costs of moving to a new address. The funds we were promised to get from the city authorities we did not receive in the full amount, which put us in the position to unexpectedly cover the majority of resources by ourselves.
During the summer of 2013 the AFC moved into a new office which was granted to us by the City of Zagreb. Considering the poor conditions in which the office was not fit for its purpose as an everyday working space, we had to invest all our efforts and resources (both financial and volunteer-driven) into its renovation.
Constantly hoping that the aforementioned expenses would be covered by the funds acquired over the course of the year 2014, AFC continued to undertake its usual activities and advocate for the animal rights cause. Unfortunately, AFC only managed to cover just part of the overall expenses of renovation of our new workspace.
Consequently, AFC has started the New Year 2015 facing debts which need to be paid, so that we can continue with all our projects in the Croatian area and further.
For this reason, we hereby kindly ask all citizens, enterprises and institutions willing to participate to help us as much as they are able to. Any amount is needed and welcome.
As we mentioned above, many accomplishments are behind us, and thanks to your help and our supporters we will continue advocating for all the animals alike!
We are immensely grateful for your help.
