Our Pro Animale centres in Poland


The first centre for horses rescued from cross border transportation to the slaughterhouse. Since 1994, this horse farm has housed over 60 horses on 50 hectares (124 acres) of land and in large stables. It is also an alternative refuge for over 50 dogs.


Since 1997 this refuge has been a place for horses, cats and dogs that are particularly needy or very old. Here we care for over 150 fosterlings (horses, dogs, cats and pigs) on a permanent basis.

Doris Zinn Herberge

In 2018 we were able to enlarge our dog retirement facilities in Spartacus thanks to the Doris Zinn Herberge. This facility accommodates ageing dogs, especially sick and disabled dogs. These come mainly from our project for former chain dogs.

Sussita Kumi

Since 1999 this has been horse farm and a species- appropriate cat shelter housing over 150 cats in 240 square metres of living space with a secure, 1.000-square-metre, outdoor enclosure

Sheep farm near Memento

Since 2014 this has been home to a 54-member herd of former animal refugees and some cats from the surrounding area.


Since 2012, more than 210 dogs have been living here permanently under our protection in accordance with Pro Animale guidelines. This home-like environment has nearly 12 hectares (30 acres) of natural, outdoor play space.

Kolebka Słońca

Since December 2004, Pro Animale has been fully responsible for running this refuge housing more than 130 dogs. The property is owned by the neighbouring communities and includes five hectares (12.5 acres) of land.

Boarding facilities working exclusively for Pro Animale


Since 1998 we have been accommodating horses at the “Gospodarstwo Rolne Karpno” boarding stables. Our horses enjoy lush pastures in 200 hectares (500 acres) of natural countryside containing woodlands and small lakes.

Delicia Natural

Since 2013 we have been boarding cattle and horses with Mr and Mrs Tylenda-Vandoninck. Today our cattle, horses, sheep and pigs and enjoy a species-appropriate life – which means they live together in herds, flocks or sounders – on 150 hectares (370 acres) of naturally-structured pasture land with spring water and natural forest.

Samaria I

Since 1999, we have accommodated horses and cattle in open stables and stalls in the loving care of the Paszek family. The animals were rescued from cross-border transportation to the slaughterhouse.

Samaria II

Since 1999, we have accommodated horses in open stables in the loving care of the Wojciech family. As with Samaria I, these animals were rescued from transportation to the slaughterhouse.
