A word from the Zagreb-based association on their big anniversary.
“Well, we certainly hope you are, because in front of you is a film that celebrates no more and no less than TWO FULL DECADES of our struggle for animal rights in Croatia! The film is accompanied by an infographic, i.e. a timeline showing the greatest achievements we are proud of, together with all of you!
When we founded our association 20 years ago, breeding and killing animals for fur was allowed in Croatia and abandoned animals were being killed in shelters. Tigers and lions jumped through hoops and were terrified of whip sounds in circus performances, the practice of microchipping of dogs did not exist, and almost no one heard of the words “vegan” or “veganism.” Today, it is unthinkable for us to even understand that some of these practices took place in as recently as the last decade…
We tirelessly did numerous activities, projects and campaigns and managed to accomplish many achievements that are today the pride for all the Croatian folk. Those changes did not happen overnight and it took a lot of dedication and effort. This is our way of giving thanks to everyone who was the wind beneath our wings along the way.
Given that we are a non-profit association, our work would not be possible without the support of goodwilled and bighearted people, and every donation and every little bit of help is precious to us and greatly appreciated. We would also appreciate it if you could inform us about any funds you may be offering or even about any grants you yourselves are applying for.
We don’t want to take up too much of your time (because who would know better than you how precious time is), so, the film and the timeline speak for themselves!”
