We have always paid great attention to donations in Pécs. Now that the holidays are coming, the need for help is even greater. Families in need, children who are sick or without a family, and animal shelters are also counting on the people of Pécs. There are many different donations to choose where, when and what you would like to donate. Let’s have a look at them:

Let’s help animal shelters!
At any time of the year, animal shelters need of our help, and this Advent season is no different. Several shelters in Pécs are waiting for donations.
How can we help?
By donating items that can be dropped off at the location of the shelter of your choice:
- pet food
We can support the shelters in Pécs and its surroundings by bank transfer or cash.
With 1% of our tax
About half of the support for animal shelters comes from 1% of our personal income tax. Let’s keep up this good habit next year.
Let’s do something nice for our four-legged furry friends and adopt one! It’s important that the pet is not just a Christmas present, but a new member of the family who needs special attention and care at all times of the year.
