About Azil Kotor

Azil Kotor is a municipal dog shelter servicing Kotor and Tivat, Montenegro. We are funded mainly by the state via the municipalities and D.O.O. Komunalno Kotor, which is managed by the Direktor of D.O.O. Komunalno Kotor.


The main aim of Azil Kotor is to collect stray, homeless and unwanted dogs from the streets of Montenegro. We provide them shelter, food and basic medical treatment until they can be adopted, as far as space and resources allow. We have one manager and 3 staff members looking after the dogs in the shelter. Additionally, a driver with a designated van is available to collect stray dogs from the street as well as to pickup and drop off food.


Any donations of food, dog accessories, or money are greatly appreciated to help us care for the dogs. We can arrange pickup of anything that you can give.

Dogs are often brought into the shelter who have been found wandering the streets. Many of these dogs are just lost. If you have lost a dog, please come to the shelter as soon as possible to see if it has been brought in. You can also leave the details of the missing dog so that we can contact you if it is brought.
