Our Story

Croatia has just a few no-kill dog shelters and they are all made thanks to the effort of animal lovers and saviors, people just like Anica Pribanić - founder of the non-profit association/dog shelter Šapa u srcu (lit. trans. "Paw in the heart") for which this campaign is made.

There are more people like her in our country, giving shelter in their own home, struggling with donations in order to save as many dogs and cats as they can. Their story is both heartbreaking and inspirational, because they barely manage to survive on donations but nevertheless they take in as many dogs as they can, not knowing what tomorrow brings. Every day is a struggle, but also, every day they save countless animals and find them a loving home. That is their greatest reward.

You can see Anica's story in the video attached to the campaign.
