9th METRO Animal Day – Animal Adoption Day


This article is a bit different that what we usually write about. Reason being is that, this is a special occasion and we couldn’t be happier to write about.

Celebrated annually on October, Metro Animal Day is an unofficial event that encourages all of us to show more  attention to the stray animals of Cyprus. It is also a day to commemorate everything that our pets do for us on a daily basis. This year on October 14th Metro supermarkets are organizing the 9th Animal Adoption Day. Everyone should visit them and rescue a a stray dog or cat. Let’s all try and help them, lets try and provide these animals a warm home and a loving family. After all, don’t they deserve it?
