More than 35 million HRK was spent due to irresponsibility 11/30/2021

The Animal Friends Association made an analysis of the implementation of the Animal Protection Act in 2020 in Croatia. They emphasize that this is the first thorough and relevant research, given that the data covered more than 97% of local governments, and they are responsible for the care of abandoned animals in their area. They also point out that the cause of abandoned animals is the irresponsibility of individuals, which must be adequately sanctioned. The obtained data confirm the experiences of animal shelters, which continue to take care of a large number of abandoned animals. In almost half of the territory of Croatia, there is a lack of thorough implementation of dog microchipping control by visiting each household, although this legal obligation should have been implemented by June 2018. Also, more than half of local communities did not prescribe permanent sterilization of dogs and cats, with exceptions, although this effective and preventive measure directly affects the control of the population of abandoned animals. In addition, 75% of cities and municipalities do not finance or subsidize the neutering of pets and stray cats, despite the fact that up to 10 castrations can be paid for the cost of caring for each abandoned animal. More than 16% of local self-government units do not have a contract with a shelter for animals, which is devastating.

Quote Of The Month

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace."

- Albert Schweitzer
