Ruslana – Ukrainian Singer
Ruslana, winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, is glad to show her support for the World Animal Day movement WAD and has sent the following message:
“We can distinguish the level of our kindness and love, not only from our attitude towards each other, but also from our attitude towards all animals. The way we treat them says a lot about ourselves and about the society in which we live. If we understand that the livelihood of animals depends heavily upon our attitude towards them, only then can we say that we are a humane society. These creatures are not to blame for being in the conditions that we, people, have created for them, so we must respect this by treating all creatures humanely.
Several days ago I took a cat from the street and brought it home. The day before yesterday, after my concert in Carpathians, I found a small puppy that was either abandoned or born on the street and have taken it to live with us in Kiev. These animals teach me not only to care about them but, by putting their trust in me, they also teach me to really love. I am extremely grateful to them for that.
People! Do not be afraid to adopt animals from shelters. Trust me, it is much easier to take care of these small friends than you imagine. And, if you cannot adopt an animal, please help rescue shelters, do not be indifferent.
Our breed is kindness”
