VOLUNTEERS from the Sloboda zvierat (Animal Freedom - SZ) civic association went out onto the streets of Bratislava on Sunday, October 3, to mark World Animal Day on October 4.

“Apart from a fund-raising campaign to help animals that was organised in the streets of Slovak towns thanks to the help of volunteers, we also organised public activities,” SZ’s Silvia Canová told the TASR newswire.

In Hviezdoslavovo Square as well as in the SZ animal shelter at Polianky, people received information about current campaigns and tasted vegetarian dishes. At 15:00, Zdenka Predná, one of the faces of a recent SZ campaign, sang for participants. Currently, SZ is running campaigns against live animal transport and the purchase of eggs produced in inhumane ways, and is providing information about how to adopt animals from shelters. People had the chance to learn how they can markedly improve the lives of animals with simple, everyday decisions and small steps.

“They can see, for instance, how the rescue shelter looks and works, and how people can adopt an animal, or how they can find out through the code on an egg in what conditions the hen lived, and thus make the right decision when buying eggs,” Canová explained.
