Shelter

Rehabilitation centre for the care of sick, injured or abandoned wildlife protected animals.

About the refuge

A sanctuary for protected wild animals is a place intended for the temporary care of sick or injured wild animals and their young that are not yet able to survive in the wild. The central purpose of the refuge is thus to help wild animals, to treat them humanely in times of distress and to allow them to return to their natural environment in the shortest possible time. 

 

The central centre for accommodation, care and treatment of protected and wild animals is located in Muta and, in order to ensure peace and optimal living conditions for the animals, is closed to visitors. Annually, we care for 500 to 1000 animals in our shelter.

 

The sanctuary operates within the framework of the Environment Agency of the Republic of Slovenia, and the minimum standards for the protection of wild animals are regulated by the Decree on the Sanctuary for Wild Animals and the Decree on the Living Conditions and Care of Wild Animals in Captivity

 

The sanctuary for wildlife protected animals is intended for the temporary care of large and small mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and aquatic animals.

Our work

In the Sanctuary for Protected Wildlife, we perform the following tasks:

Transportation of animals with a suitable means of transport and adequate care.

We transport animals mainly for larger and dangerous animals, the transport of non-dangerous animals to the shelter is usually provided by the finder.

Admission of animals to the shelter and management of data on the animal.

The shelter maintains the following data on animals: animal species, biological and other characteristics of the animal, place of removal from the wild and reason, date of admission, health status of the animal, prescribed therapy and method of release of the animal from the shelter.

Accommodation of the animal in a room with suitable living conditions.

Depending on the health status of the animal, it is placed in an intensive care box, a cage or a flyover.

Veterinary and general animal care

The care of animals in the shelter depends on the type of animal and the state of health the animal is in when it is admitted to the shelter, but it must not last more than three months.

Release of animals from the shelter

Animals of native species that have acquired the ability to live independently in nature after temporary care in our shelter are immediately returned to their natural environment. Animals that are not able to live in the wild find their home with us or are handed over to an experienced and responsible caretaker (except for owls and raptors). For animals that we cannot help, we choose euthanasia.
