THE INITIATIVE of Tatiana Rosová, mayor of the Old Town district of Bratislava, called Nájdite sa! (Find Yourselves!) that seeks to match abandoned pets living in animal shelters with new owners had a very successful fourth edition on April 1, with 20 dogs and one cat going home with new owners and two other dogs likely to be adopted. Three previous events had found new homes for only 19 dogs.

The site for the matchmaking was the Game- keeper’s Lodge in the city’s Horský Park. Mother Nature played a small joke on the assembled people and animals this April 1st as it started to snow around noon, but even that failed to detract from either group’s high spirits.

Actress Kristína Farkašová, known as the ‘ambassador’ of the project, hosted this year’s event. She had herself adopted a dog at one of the previous events. Other local personalities also joined in and became patrons of various animal shelters, according to Dorota Kráková of the mayor’s office.

Animal shelters from 13 sites in Slovakia, including ones as far as Revúca in central Slovakia and Prešov in eastern Slovakia, brought animals for adoption and also sold small souvenirs to help finance their work. The next matchmaking event is expected to be held in June.
