With citizen cooperation, a ‘Santa Claus’ dog walk was organised for the first weekend of Advent at the shelters of the Together for the Protection of Animals Association and Dog House Association. This time, they wanted to draw attention to the action and responsible animal husbandry with a joint walk, which was joined by families, civilians and the local government representative of the district.
‘Debrecen is a city that builds on communities, human communities, but the background power of human communities is provided by these four-legged animals, cats and dogs, who are waiting for us at home. Whether it’s a rainy day or a happy day or there is sadness or joy, they always welcome us home with sparkling eyes, and we must not forget that’ local government representative Zoltán Piros pointed out at the event.
The two organisations will receive the donations this year collected for their benefit through the national fundraising program called the Advent Civilian Fair. The national fundraising program was launched by the Citizens for The Youth Association (Civilek a Fiatalokért Egyesület) and the Hajdú-Bihar County Civilian Community Service Center.
Until the 20th of December, they mainly collect dry food, medicines and vitamins for the four-legged friends, as well as building materials for making dog houses.
