Campaign "I Love Animals"
The project "I LOVE ANIMALS" is humanitarian in character and the goal is, besides drawing attention to animal rights and protection, to help build a shelter for abused animals. It is supposed, no matter how difficult the situation for animals is, to animate a positive way of thinking and active involvement of citizens in animal protection and rights, in hope for a better future for all residents of this planet.
For the first time in Croatia a great number of Croatian celebrities and creative individuals gathered for the purpose of promotion of animal protection and rights. The project "I LOVE ANIMALS" consists of a band aid with its song and video "No Excuse (Nema isprike)" in order to emphasize the need for animal protection in Croatia to the general public.
Their voices for animals gave: Marko Tolja, Tina Vukov, Toni Cetinski, Jelena Radan, Oliver Dragojevic, Ines Bojanic, Lea Dekleva, Lana Banely, Maja Vucic, Massimo Savic, Iva Bagic, Detour, Leona Paraminski, Popper, Klinci s Ribnjaka, and Zagrebacki malisani.
The text and music for the song "No Excuse (Nema isprike)" was written by Lea Dekleva, arrangement by Miro Buljan. The video was produced and directed by Vanja Vascarac. Photographer is Filip Cargonja.
In the creative and media sector the great voluntary contribution was given by the TBWA agency
Zagreb, the media agency PHD, and the marketing company b.i.p..

Help us build a sanctuary
We invite you to contribute personally to the construction of our first shelter for abused animals. Let us join our forces and build a special place that will be not only a "safe haven" of assistance to those who cannot help themselves, but will also help to spread the general message of compassion and non-violence.
Your personal contribution in building a sanctuary for abused animals is much appreciated and can be sent directly to Ianua's f.e. bank account SWIFT: ZABAHR2X, account number: 2100387303, IBAN HR 6023600001102075266.
In addition to donations in money, donations in goods or services are also welcome, and citizens who wish to donate building materials, tools, paint, polish and anything else that may be of use when building and maintaining objects, farming, as well as feeding and caring for animals.
Our first action at the shelter was held, and anyone interested in participating in upcoming actions can contact us at email@example.com, regardless whether they have any practical skills or experience.
During the past decade, shelters for abused animals have reflected a growing awareness in many European countries and the USA that one should create certain "oasis" in which animals could live protected from all forms of cruelty, abuse, and violent death. But beside caring for animals, the basic purpose of all such shelters is educational: they raise the awareness of the value of all living beings.
Therefore, the shelters offer an opportunity to all visitors to interact freely with the animals – tenants of the shelter – in circumstances of safety and freedom, and to experience each of them as a special individual, a sentient and emotional being that simply wants to live. In this way, we are building a cruelty-free society and a more compassionate future.
