A resident of Leningrad with a cat
Over the last 3 months we have managed to do a lot of important and useful for our brethren, the shelter did not stop working for a minute.
In this report, we want to tell you about the 2 most important events of these months.
1. Celebration of the complete liberation of Leningrad from the blockade.
Every year on January 27, we remembered the exploits of four-legged soldiers who served their country and with their lives have helped people survive and win!
People who in 1942 survived the Leningrad blockade, remember that while the city did not become cats, but the number of rats increased tenfold.Rodents are not only wiped out food supplies, but were carriers of the viruses that cause terrible epidemic diseases.
Spring of 1943, four rail cars with cats were brought to Leningrad. Cats immediately went into action, cleaning up all the cellars, attics and landfills from rats. Cats have won!Cats also warmed frozen small children, were small consolation to them in those terrible times. Therefore, many kids dedicated furry pets poems and songs.
After the lifting of the blockade in Leningrad was made another delivery cats. This time the cats rescued museums, palaces and even the Hermitage. People take care of them: fed, treated, but the most important - respected and still respected for his diligent work and assistance.
This is our history, which we must not forget .......
2. Participation in the World Spay Day
February 23 most of St. Petersburg's veterinary clinics have joined the World Spay Day - day of the castration of animals.
The action takes place in 1995, but the first time Russia has joined the annual international event only in 2015. The campaign aims to help reduce the population of stray animals in the urban environment, and establish a culture of detention and humane treatment of pets.
Total 1122 operations were carried out in the city and the region, including cats - 1012, dogs - 110. It is almost 5 times more than last year! Millions of "extra" animals, doomed to wander the streets and will not appear on the light!
Now for the results - thanks to your help we were able to buy 216 kg. of therapeutic food for cats. This would not be possible without your support!
Over the past months 14 dogs and 7 cats found a new home and loving owners.
Thank you for the help and support of our project! Little help much better then big sympathy. We hope you will continue to support our project.
