The 15th Anniversary Forum "Million Friends. Wildlife and Society" was held at the Nizhny Novgorod Fair.
Nizhny Novgorod Governor Valery Shantsev and President of the Russian Cynological Federation Alexander Inshakov examined the forum exposition. The officials also took part in the opening of the international competition for the Cup of the President of the Russian Cynological Federation.
"Both the forum and the championship are very interesting events to attend. They represent amazing creative work of people with their pets. I would like to thank all organizers for this positive movement. I am pleased that the President of the Russian Cynological Federation came to the event in person, - said Valery Shantsev. - Although I have never owned a dog, I've always loved them and took care of all stray dogs that lived in the yard of our house, near the dovecote. We with other guys would always feed and pet them. Those were nobody's dogs, but we considered them our own pets."
"The level of the exhibition "Million Friends. Wildlife and Society" is very high, and it has been growing every year. In general, these events have an international status and are held only in three Russian cities - Moscow, St. Petersburg and Nizhny Novgorod. It has become a tradition. I am certain that we will be organizing new projects in Nizhny Novgorod region in the future as well," said Alexander Inshakov.
The forum "Million Friends. Wildlife and Society" was organized by the Nizhny Novgorod association of breed clubs with the support of the Russian Cynological Association and the Committee of State Veterinary Supervision of the Nizhny Novgorod region.
