Radičová supports animal rescue effort

Prime Minister Iveta Radičová lent her support to an event called Nájdite sa! / Find Yourselves at the Bratislava Forest House in Horský Park on Saturday, June 25. The event aimed to introduce potential pet-owners to animals in shelters that were ready for adoption. The animals came from the Sloboda zvierat civic association’s shelters as well as the civic associations Záchranný koráb (Rescue Ark) and Pes v núzdi (Dog in Distress). The event was initiated by Bratislava Old Town Mayor Táňa Rosová. “At least one animal from each rescue shelter was adopted,” Dorota Kárková of the Old Town municipal office told the TASR newswire. “The benefit event was also supported by Prime Minister Iveta Radičová,” Kárková added. “The prime minister almost adopted a dog, though she already has two such dogs at home.” Altogether, three dogs and five cats found new homes on June 25.
