Did you know that 4th October 2018 is World Animal Day? In Switzerland Whiskas® and Pedigree® are supporting World Animal Day in a number of different ways in cooperation with Coop.

The Grizzly Project for Older People

Two very interesting projects which they are involved in are both run by the Swiss Animal Welfare Society – The Grizzly Project and Adopt A Pet.

The Grizzly Project helps older people to bring their beloved pets to a retirement or nursing home and is of immense support to older people.

Adopt A Pet

Adopt A Pet – – helps animals to find new homes. Every day 44 animals become homeless in Switzerland due to one reason and another and you can make a huge difference to the lives of these animals by either offering an animal a home or by donating to this cause.
