Starting of Drugi Dom initiative to encourage citizens to adopt animals from shelter.
The initiative aims to increase the possibility of adopting dogs from the shelter by reaching people potentially interested in adoption, and who, for various reasons, and in particular because of their sensitivity, are afraid of visiting it. Taking dogs to the park, instead of Sunday walks of Wrocław residents, casual contact or even a walk with a dog in need of a second home, a conversation with a volunteer-guardian of the dog, are important aspects of our initiative. But the most important thing is to overcome the fear of adopting a dog from a shelter.
