For the 6th consecutive year, METRO Animal Day held on Sunday, October 4th, at METRO Nicosia, Larnaca, Paralimni and Limassol, respectively, proved to be another great success!
Attendance at the event as well as the adoptions carried out showed once again the love and compassion that people have for stray animals in Cyprus.
A total of 5 animal shelters from around Cyprus participated: Nicosia Dog Shelter, CAT P.A.W.S Cyprus, PAWS - Protecting Animals Without Shelter, Aradippou DogShelter, Cyprus Voice for Animals (CVA). METRO contributed €20 towards the adoption package for each pet that included vaccines, a microchip and neutering. Furthermore, Friskies donated €30 worth of food for each animal as well.
Those who attended the day not only got to experience the emotional highs of being surrounded by gorgeous lovable animals who were fortunate enough to find new homes, but also got to support the animal welfare organizations who took part in the event and who had souvenirs for sale.
One also cannot forget the invaluable support and importance of all the volunteers across the island who generously gave their assistance on the day and who demonstrated their selfless love towards the stray animals of Cyprus.
METRO’s Animal Day was certainly an occasion dedicated exclusively to the animals whose need for love and a safe home was made a priority by all.
