I visited on a nice sunny day. This outdoor facility is a spartan compound, lots of dogs and only two volunteers. Both were busy, but accessible to my observations and a few questions I had... a few stories about a few of the dogs and even new puppies! There is the genuine love for the animals there. I kept my visit to a little bit over an hour because I did not wish to affect any time constraints on them... the dogs come first. I just wanted to enjoy this day and make a few of the dogs happy with some attention. After my departure, I checked out the Zarkovica website.. needless to say, the homepage floored me. The photo is of the shelter in Winter... with the caption, "The Temporary Home For Over Three Hundred Dogs In Dubrovnik..". I take those few words as part of their mission statement. I hope their success! Every Tripadvisor pic is happy people, happy dogs, sunshine & smiles. I was thinking of all the dogs there.. maybe fortunate in survival but are damn cold in the Winter. The welfare of the dogs depends on the time and care of these volunteers. Give generously, do what you can, volunteer your time, help them.. the dogs, the volunteers will love you for it, & of course you will feel better too & be a much better person for it.

I recommend a visit to Zarkovica Animal Shelter! I almost gave up as I didn't get a response to an advance email, and no success from calling. I decided to just take a taxi to show-up. The gate was closed but was so lucky the barking dogs alerted Tommy on site to come let me in. I could tell he really had passion for the animals, and was very patient to chat with me about the history of the space and care routine for the animals. He let me time to hang with the dogs in the sun too. It made me glad that many of the dogs were free to roam about and interact. I did feel they were in need of additional financial and human capital resources, and worthy of support.

As animal shelters go, this is the most unique one could imagine. It's set up outside on the hills above Dubrovnik, and staffed by kind and informative volunteers who are happy to introduce visitors to the dogs. The dogs have many unique and distinct personalities. Unfortunately, the lack of tourists this year has impacted the number of dogs adopted by tourists, and the ability of locals to do the same. You'll need a car to get here, and be sure to visit Mt. Srd as well.
