Besides becoming a member, visitors will have the opportunity of signing various petitions and subscribing to the monthly newsletter AnimaList and the weekly selection of recipes.
In almost 12 years since its foundation, Animal Friends has become recognized in the public as the largest and most influential association promoting animal protection and rights in Croatia. Hundreds of our campaigns and actions have aimed at raising the awareness of the general public about the suffering of animals in food industry, laboratories, fur farms, hunting, fishing, and entertainment industry. Our association has been actively promoting a sustainable and ethical lifestyle, which has had a considerable impact on the awareness of individuals regarding the human treatment of animals. Besides education by means of public actions, info-stalls, lectures, video projections, protests, performances and other such activities, Animal Friends has been actively involved in the modification of relevant laws and regulations. Our work and activities have been recognized not only in Croatia, but also internationally, and we have established fruitful collaboration with similar associations in other countries.
Public support is of exceptional importance, since it enables the association to survive and to continue its current projects and campaigns. Therefore, everyone who wants to become involved in making this world a better place with less violence is welcome to join us in our efforts, aimed at promoting various aspects of animal protection and a sustainable way of life. The informative and educational website of Animal Friends offers plenty of information, petitions, and interesting articles, as well as free leaflets, booklets, and video materials.
By becoming our member and paying the membership fee, or by donating money, goods, or services, everyone can help us continue with our activities and encourage change in the society. As a token of gratitude to our members, whose number has been on the increase, we have organized various discounts and other benefits, as our members are important for the volunteer-based and non-profit activity of the association. By purchasing T-shirts, mugs, stickers, totes, and other products, everyone can support the association and promote animal rights at the same time. You can also join our projects by volunteering at the info-stall, participating in our protests, or by offering services from your home or office.
Our activists invite you to make the struggle for animal protection a part of your daily life. By promoting non-violent, healthy lifestyle, and compassion for others, everyone can make a positive impact on the general atmosphere in the society, not only by achieving an actual change for the sake of themselves, the animals, and the environment, but also by contributing to the general development of a humane civil society.
We invite everyone to join the thousands of present members of Animal Friends in order to promote public good and to make this world a nicer place for all its inhabitants. There are no preconditions for becoming a member or participating in our activities, apart from the wish to achieve positive change.
