Today’s harsh reality is that the specialists of the Rescue Board or the Environmental Board, who went to “help” the injured animal, usually take the victim somewhere else out of sight because the state does not have the resources for treatment. The toleration of animal suffering is, unfortunately, the affirmation of cruelty as a social norm, and in a civilized world there are more and more people against such cruelty.
The Animal Rescue Group is trying to change this cruel practice, and we have set the main goal to ensure the rapid transport and treatment of animals and birds involved in accidents and / or in need of emergency veterinary assistance. Another priority is the transfer, treatment, socialization and finding new owners of abused animals in cooperation with the VFB and the police. The Animal Rescue Team operates on a voluntary basis, depends on donations, and this sets very clear limits on our capabilities.

The slaughter of the animal must be carried out by a competent and trained person
- Unloading, accommodation, feeding, watering and handling of animals for slaughter must be carried out in the most humane manner
