It is a question of bringing together in one place, the Salengro room, for a weekend, on October 1 and 2, the actors who ensure the protection of domestic animals (cats, dogs, rabbits) and new company (hamsters, mice, turtles, insects, snakes, etc.). ” This show is for those who love animals and want to learn more about the best way to take care of them. explains Émeline Boitte, animal welfare and educational farm adviser.

“If we want to defend animal welfare, we cannot cage animals and expose them for a whole weekend”

The latter warns, however, that you should not expect to see animals during this event. ” If we want to defend animal welfare, we cannot cage animals and expose them for a whole weekend, that would be inconsistent. “, specifies the young adviser. Photos and videos of animals for adoption will be suffered.
