Agriculture Minister Tomislav Tolušić, at the beginning of the year, endorsed the ban on the breeding of fur animals, while respecting the attitude of most Croatian citizens. He then announced the adoption of a new Animal Protection Act "which envisions a whole host of new provisions aimed at greater animal protection".
The public's enthusiasm again caused his new statement.
- I'm against animal killing. In the Republic of Croatia we already have six dead kill shelters, and I think killing should not allow a new law either. But let's wait for his passing - Tolušić said.
We offer strong support but kill the shelters also follows the majority public opinion. Earlier, and especially last year, during the public debate on the draft Animal Protection Act, citizens almost unanimously supported the ban on animal counting in shelters. Surveys have shown that more than 90 percent of respondents say they are banning the killing of abandoned dogs and cats, and considers it necessary to ban this ban as part of the new Animal Protection Act.
For years, the public has been well-informed about the killing of healthy dogs in Croatia by their former caretakers, although it is neither fair nor humane, and there is no need for it because there are good examples of disposing of abandoned animals without their being killed.
Practice shows that Croatia is the most successful in the number of sheltered animals that do not kill animals. Six no kill shelter invests all its resources in animal advertising and foster home search. They spend the money earned reasonably to increase the welfare and protection of animals and their homelands, Animal Friends said.
