Animals are our true friends and they do not ask for anything in return except caring, a warm home and a crumble of love. It's a hard situation when it comes to animal rights here in Bosnia and Herzegovina, so it is crucial to speak up for those who don't have a voice themselves. The World Animal Day movement gives us all a wonderful opportunity to celebrate animal rights and raise awareness on the importance of humane treatment and love, especially when it comes to children. I will always lend my voice to animals, whether I'm on stage or in the classroom.
