Among the visitors of the day were many children.
“We have decided to commemorate the International Cat Day this way – by organizing a family ‘Cat Day.’ All these cats are former or current residents of our charity foundation. Some of them are looking for new homes, and we are hoping to find them in good hands with this expo and raise public awareness of stray animals issue,” the executive director of “Helping Hand for Stray Animals” foundation Inna Nazarova told PenzaNews agency.
A total of 20 cats were presented at the expo for the visitors to see and pet.
Moreover, the guests of the event could donate to the foundation by taking part in a lottery or putting money in special boxes.
All visitors received souvenirs, including handcrafts made by the foundation volunteers.
