Players from the Romanian Football Federation (FRF) are seeking to promote the adoption of dogs which are unguarded or live in kennels across the country. With an initiative called ‘Fill the void in your life’, players are taking to the pitch with the rescue dogs endowed with name tags. With all dogs vaccinated, sterilised and ready to be adopted, the initiative seeks to help reduce the amount of dogs stuck in dog shelters or running feral.
Animal shelters all over the world reported a slight uptake in dog adoptions as people sought companionship throughout the pandemic. However, with many people still preferring to buy a new puppy, adoptions still have a long way to go, even in Malta. Such initiatives, coupled with a sport or activity many people adore, could not only boost adoptions but make a furry friend extremely happy. Do you think we should try this out in Malta?
