NERO - Croatia - 2 year old small mixed breed male on death row.

Time is running out - his death date was 23 June 2014

The pound's vet manager is extremely sympathetic to the plight of the animals. He works with local rescue organisations who try to find homes in Croatia, Germany, Holland and the UK. However, if the local city hall should inspects the pound, they can order him to kill those who have reached their 60 days in the pound.

Vaccinated: yes
Neutered: yes
Treated for fleas and worms: yes

Microchipped: yes
EU passport: yes

Weight: 7 kg
Age: 2 years old

The vet does his best with the limited resources available, local volunteers are recruited to come and walk the dogs on a Saturday afternoon. This is the only time of the week the dogs can leave the pens and there can be long periods when the walks are not possible and due to the ratio of dogs to volunteers some will not get exercised at all.

These dogs have basic care but they suffer in the pound from stress, boredom, fear and sadness. They are all desperate to get out of their prison and be loved and part of a family.
