With the objective of promoting the adoption of animals, Oeiras holds the traditional Animal Festival next Saturday, October 9, from 10 am to 6 pm, in the Municipal Garden of Oeiras. The godfathers of this edition are Santiago Lagoá and Gustavo Santos. Admission is free.
This 7th edition, which will be associated with the event an Agility Speed Cup Test, includes in its program several activities such as adoption campaigns, themed workshops, dog demonstrations and donkey rides, among other surprises.
It should be remembered that, since 2014, the Municipality of Oeiras has promoted two major events dedicated to companion animals that usually take place in the Municipal Garden of Oeiras, with free entry: Animal Fair (May) and Animal Festival (October) as part of the commemoration of World Animal Day.
These initiatives aim to promote good practices and raise awareness of the rights of animals, providing a fun day for the whole family, presenting all kinds of services and accessories for animals, holding workshops on various topics in the animal area (nutrition, care , how to choose a pet) and breed shows, working with animals, including obedience classes, agility, search and rescue.
These events are always associated with a large adoption campaign for animals in the municipality’s custody, who are just waiting for a visit from a family that will adopt them with love.
