Dog Show for Shelter Dogs

A trend to adopt pets from shelters appeared in Europe and the USA long ago. Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Gosling, Orlando Bloom, Bradley Cooper, Olivia Wildу and many other celebrities all got their pets from shelters. They were soon followed by other less famous animal lovers.

In Russia, a favorable image of shelter dogs and cats is gradually gaining popularity. Not so long ago, Boomstarter, a crowd funding platform, was used to launch a project to raise funding necessary to carry out a show for dogs from 40 Moscow shelters —  https://boomstarter.ru/projects/318990/each_dog_needs_a_home. The organizers believe that the dog show event would not only find new loving homes for the dogs on show, but also help establish a culture of adopting pets from shelters. Therefore, much effort is going towards the organization of the event and PR. For example, the show will include additional features to generate extra attention, such as an exhibition of pictures by famous photographers and a flash mob. Special show presenters will be invited and several Russian celebrities may also attend.

Everyone supporting the show via Boomstarter will receive stylish presents that include pictures by Andrey Tarusov, a famous illustrator. The presents will be delivered free of charge across Russia.

In order to make this event a huge success, we need your help! We are seeking donations from you to help find happy homes for these wonderful dogs. In return for your generous help, we will give you a gift to say thanks and show you care.
