Welcome to the shelter

Every year, Sloboda zvierat rescues over 2,500 animals. Despite the fact that two thousand of them eventually manage to find home again, most of the animals spend several weeks or months in a shelter. How does a shelter actually work? What kind of help do animals receive here and how can we help them? And what should you do if you are interested in adopting an animal?

Animals most frequently arrive at the Sloboda Zvierat shelter after being reported by individuals.

By calling the number 159 of the Municipal Police, you are not making a report directly to our shelter. The Municipal Police will immediately contact the dispatching of Sloboda Zvierat which will ensure the capture of the stray or dead animal. The capital informs about this activity on its website. After dialling 159, residents report the data directly into their system.

Sloboda zvierat has a contract with the capital for the provision of services in the field of veterinary remediation of stray or dead animals.

About the shelter

Upon arrival at the shelter, each animal is examined by our veterinarian and left in quarantine for several days for observation. The injured animals are treated, the sick animals are provided with necessary treatment, and in the case of abused animals or animals wounded in an accident, we provide surgery and subsequent treatment with partner veterinary facilities.

A healthy dog can go to the enclosure with others. However, prior to that, the dog undergoes vaccination against canine diseases and microchipping in order to be permanently marked, and we will rid him of external and internal parasites and the dog will be spayed or neutered.

The financial cost of taking care of one animal amounts to approximately 100 euros. However, in the case of serious injuries, this amount can rise to several hundred euros. That‘s why your help is essential. More photos from the interior of our shelter can be found here.

About adoption

Think about adopting a pet in peace. Make sure you can give it enough care even in a few years. You can find photos and basic information about all animals that are currently looking for a new home here. Watch out! Cats, bunnies and guinea pigs are also looking for a new home… </ sleep>

The best way to get to know your dog better is to go for a walk. In this way, you will find out what kind of personality he has and whether you are a good match for each other. At the shelter, talk to the caretaker about the dog’s personality, the veterinarian about its health, and the dispatcher about securing the animal against loss. If you are still hesitating, you can agree to take the dog home for a so-called test. a long walk that lasts for 14 days.

 If you decide to adopt, bring your own collar, leash or crate and after filling out the forms and paying the fees, the dog can go home with you. Please keep in mind that only a person over the age of 18 with a valid identity card can take over the pet. The animals go to their new home treated, vaccinated and microchipped. These actions and care are included in the price of the adoption fee.
