“I can't do everything but I can do something“
Adopt a Pet from Žarkovica animal shelter
We desperately need volunteers to help our dogs and there are a lot of things you can do to help us if you are visiting or live in Dubrovnik. Our volunteer roles include dog walking, photography, transporting dogs, social media, fixing/building dog runs and more.
Žarkovica Animal Shelter is run on donations. Without your support, we wouldn't be able to feed and look after our dogs and other animals. Please donate to help save the lives of more than 300 dogs and 200 cats, each year.

Visit us at the shelter to make a cash donation
In addition to monetary donations, our shelter also relies on donations of dog food and other supplies. If you have any items listed on our donations page and are willing to donate them to us, please contact us to arrange to drop them off at our shelter.
Opening hours: 7am-7pm every day
Postal address (for donations): See Donations page for more info.
