At the beginning of April 2009., we got a whole new team at the Shelter and since then until the end of 2015., they helped and rescued thousands of dogs and injured cats and over 3 500 wild animals were saved from streets of Zagreb.
Our four member team cares daily for abandoned dogs left on the streets of Zagreb by their irresponsible owners, as well as cats and other various species of animals that are in danger wondering in public spaces in the city. We rescued birds (ducks, kites, hawks, black birds, owls, peacocks swans etc.), wild animals (foxes, snakes, martens, hedgehogs, deer, squirrels, otters…) and some exotic species such as Iguanas and various turtles.
With our new car, the Fiat Doblo sponsored by Nestle Purina Pet Care, our animal care service became well recognizable to all our citizens. Today, the service has two cars and two field teams for helping animals, either to return them to their homes or for injured and sick wild animals that need help. Together with city offices for forestry and agriculture, we created a protocol for collaboration with police, firefighters, 112 emergency call centre, info centre and Municipal service and Transport Sector. Together with veterinary inspection of City of Zagreb, we also help neglected and abused animals.
