It’s crunch time for Dubrovnik’s dogs.  Yesterday, voters chose two candidates to fight to be become mayor of Dubrovnik on June 6.

One is Mato Francovic, who has promised to create a municipal shelter so the city’s 360 street dogs can have a safe home.

The other is Valentin Dujmović, who as head of Sanitat, the city’s sanitation department tried to seize the dogs in the middle of the night from the private Zarcovica Animal Shelter and send them to places they would be killed.

Network for Animals urges all its supporters to share this news and send a message to the people of Dubrovnik that animal lovers around the world support compassion not cruelty.
