Our association for protection of animals is a non-profit, non-governmental and non-partisan association. Founded on July 6, 2009. it brings together young, ambitious people who, with their inexhaustible enthusiasm continuously work towards achieving the goals of the association - protecting the animals and conserving of nature. Our shelter is in village of Kamenica, near city of Nis and presently houses about 90 animals; horses, goats and donkeys and rabbits, squirrels and birds and many more. All those animals need daily care, which is the main job of our volunteers and all the volunteers that come to us.
