Plahi was the thirteenth runty little pig with a bad eye infection which caused him to lose one.. As a baby he received a blow which left ¸his balance center permanently damaged. In the place from where he was saved, he would have survived only few days. After living as a subtenant in Zagreb for a little while, Plahi starts a new life in his new home.
On the farm from where he was rescued, Plahi’s best friend Vočer was isolated at birth due to his illness. Left to his own, ill, hurt and undernourished, he had a slim chance of survival. Despite constant stumbling and fallings and poor eyesight, Plahi starts to follow Vočer in his wanderings and adventures. The two friends soon become famous and the village dubs them “rascals”.
Gručo the rabbit, who was bred for slaughter together with his brothers and sisters, also comes to the shelter as a former subtenant. Soon after he is joined by a little female rabbit named Gručolina. The inseparable little couple peacefully watch over every corner of their house, occasionally enjoying a taste of the house furniture.
The sisters Ba and Be and their brother Šlapica were saved from a cattle fair. The little ducklings were cramped up together and, being the last living animals that day, they waited fearfully to be separated and taken to imminent death. They live together with their guardian and protector – Viz the gander. As a baby, Viz the gander was found in the garbage, discarded after a cattle fair. Half-dead with a broken leg and covered in scabs, he was brought to the shelter. Wishing to impose himself as the alpha-male of all the creatures living in the shelter, Viz uses his voice to achieve that which he cannot with his stature, constantly yelling at everything and everybody.
Modesti arrives at the shelter as a depressed young heifer. On the farm, from where she was saved right after her birth, she comes down with severe pneumonia and is predicted a near death. Today Modesti is a healthy, happy and restless cow, a little gourmand with a special taste for apples and bananas.
Yogi the ox is the newest family member. As a little calf he was saved in front of a slaughterhouse. In the following years he often changes his guardians, failing to settle down anywhere. He arrives at the shelter in a very bad condition, with wounds from the rope he was tied with, undernourished, exhausted and irascible. After substantial meals and strolls on the meadow, followed by hours of brushing and tenderness, Yogi completely falls in love with his new home.
.....at the end– story about Njinjica... The little Vietnamese Potbelly pig Njinjica was born four years ago with a weak cartilaginous tissue defect. Right after birth, Njinjica is separated from her mother and placed as a decoration into the reality show “Big Brother”. A few days later she goes into a coma. After being taken in by her guardians the piggy stays paralyzed and completely dependant on their care. Only a one-year acupuncture treatment gives promising results and alleviates the sufferings of little Njinjica. Ever since she first came into contact with people, Njinjica suffers from agoraphobia. In the shelter, she refuses to leave the house. Incapable to stand on her front feet, she is still dependant on the help of others in performing all the basic functions, ranging from feeding to bodily functions. Nevertheless, she continues to receive huge portions of love from her guardians.
Let us be there for them and help them! This is a story about hope and struggle, about friendship and love. …a story about one big family… …a story that continues…
