Our Dubrovnik rescue group Društvo za zaštitu životinja Dubrovnik offers help not only to cats and dogs but also to wild animals in need. We rescue injured animals and take them to a vet or a specialized clinic for treatment and surgery, if needed. During their recovery, the injured animals stay in the home of one of our volunteers until they are ready to be returned to nature.
Some of our temporary residents have included hedgehogs, turtles, pigeons, seagulls, and even a badger. They receive treatment, food, rest and the love that only the Žarkovica family can give.
Below are pictures of some of the animals we have helped.
