Additional information

Additional 1

The Bestie Association adopts animals exclusively with pre-control of conditions. With the great help of the Association of Sisters from all over Croatia, the animals found happy homes in many other places in Lijepa naša, not only in Zaprešić and the surrounding area. The Bestie Association also successfully cooperates with animal protection associations from Germany, Austria and Switzerland during foster care, which are extremely helpful in the process of pre-control and subsequent control of adopters. All foster care is documented, both by the Foster Care Agreement and by numerous emails and photographs that foster carers regularly send us. Photos of new happy families can be found in the album Successful foster care. When fostering, we are always available for all information, feel free to contact us with all questions. Every foster care is a blessing, but also a responsibility, both for us as an Association that bears the burden of deciding whether it has chosen a good home for its protégé, and for a future adopter who we believe is aware that the decision to adopt is not only a pleasure but also a future long-term obligation. another living being.

We do not differentiate potential adopters by place of residence (city or village), by gender, financial income or hair color, but only by whether they will meet the Contractual obligations. Any breach of contractual obligations entails sanctions - confiscation of the animal.
