Our 8th anniversary was a blast! Together with our sponsors, supporters, volunteers and fellow animal lovers, we celebrated our successful rescue and rehabilitation efforts of the last eight years. Our event partners made it possible for us to give away some cool prizes to attendees. Check out if you are one of the lucky ones who won something!
At 8:00AM sharp, the first guests started to arrive at La Palmeraie. At the entrance, people could put their tickets in the raffle bowl for a chance to win prizes. Around 11:00AM, two of our youngest visitors were asked to help us pick tickets from the bowl to decide the winners. These are the winners:
