The first delivery of fifty new dog shelters for the animal shelter on Žarkovica arrived today. The City of Dubrovnik has purchased 100 such dog kennels in total based on the dimensions submitted by the Society for the Protection of Animals in Dubrovnik. The new kennels will keep the dogs in the shelter dry and warmer through the upcoming winter months and were made by a local company in Dubrovnik.
“The kennels are set up to ensure that the dogs in Žarkovica are provided with better accommodation conditions,” commented the City of Dubrovnik. The City has also provided 100,000 Kuna for the reconstruction of the fences around the animal shelter as well as an additional 100,000 Kuna to the Society of the Protection of Animals in Dubrovnik for the purpose of recruiting a much needed workforce for the animal shelter.
