The candidate for the most animal-friendly act of the Estonian Society for the Protection of Animals (ELS) in 2021 is what happened in Rohuküla harbor this year, where the children of the Aruküla school on their way to Vormsi rescued a kitten for a few weeks.

The two kittens would probably have ended up if the young people had not taken them on a tour of Vormsi. Later, the kittens were taken to a clinic and then to a care home in Tallinn.

There are three candidates for the title of animal-friendly act:

  • ban on fur farms
  • British soldiers helped Tapa catch a hungry dog ​​that had escaped due to fireworks
  • schoolchildren rescued kittens from Rohuküla harbor

The Animal Welfare Society also announces the most animal-hostile act of the year. This candidate is:

  • the dog was put a rope around the neck with a stone and thrown into the river
  • The constant wandering of the dogs in Nõo municipality resulted in one dog being killed a long time ago
  • the father beat the kitten to death

“When choosing the candidates to vote, the caring of young people for animals was noticeable. If last year the school children suffered an act of hostility, then this year the situation is the opposite. We found several stories in the media where children either donated, helped or noticed an animal in trouble. This is a very positive sign, because caring for animals starts at a young age, ”said Agnes Blank, Marketing and Communications Manager at ELS.

Every year, ELS chooses one animal-friendly and hostile act within the framework of the Animal Welfare Day. It is possible to vote until October 31.

Based on the results of the vote, the two acts that received the most votes will be announced in November.
