A festival in Odessa to find families for hundreds of homeless pets

“Home Me” Fest is a place where people can meet their future pet friend and take him home. And animals from shelters get a chance to find a family. The Festival will take place at the French Boulevard 85 (outdoor territory of the store “Your Garden”), on September 25-26.

This is the 6th edition of “Home Me”. Since 2018, 5 festivals have been held in Ukraine. This are the total results of all previous editions:

  • 305 animals were found at home;
  • 20 shelters took part in the Home Me Fest;
  • 10,000 guests attended the festivals;
  • 265 volunteers helped with the organisation.

The results are amazing, but the organising team is not going to stop there and wants to donate even more pussies to the house.

This year’s Home Me will take place at the end of September. There cats and dogs from shelters will meet guests of the festival and wait for their new families.

Volunteers, veterinarians and dog handlers will share their experience, talk about the rules of care, education and caring for animals. On the territory of the festival, it will be possible to buy themed souvenirs, high-quality pet supplies, creative toys and other things important for pets.

For the festival, the team collects UAH 100,000 and is looking for support from those who are not indifferent on the crowdfunding platform “Moy Gorod (My City). Funds are necessary for the repair of enclosures, arrangement of the location, promotion and other organisational costs. The team strives to ensure that the animals are in proper conditions and can definitely find a home.

Generous people giving donations can receive gifts (postcards, stickers, T-shirts or eco-bags), according to the amount of the contribution. However, rewards will be active only for users registered on the platform, so that the organisers know exactly who to send the merchandise to.
