Every day cats and dogs are losing their lives in the streets of our country. It is very upsetting but the authorities are not taking action to prevent this.
Thus, Maestros of Tango from Athens, İzmir, İstanbul, Limassol and Nicosia are getting together to perform at the opening of a photo exhibition called ‘Let’s Hold a Paw” by GIFDER to create awareness. Later tango for goodness will continue with social dancers. Let’s meet at Samanbahçe on 28th of September at 20.00 to be the voice of the animals in the shelters.
The event is being sponsored by Kıbrıs Vakıflar İdaresi, Türk Kızılayı, Girne Belediyesi, Arucad, and Elexus Hotel.
Besides creating awareness, our aim is to find homes for 275 dogs at Nicosia Animal Shelter.
GIFDER, Kyrenia Photograph Association has been working at the Shelters of Kyrenia and Nicosia for the exhibition. The photos will be on sale.
The charity will go to Nicosia Animal Shelter. Later a calendar and a catalogue will be published with the photos of the shelter dogs.
