Historical step taken in China
AS WE go to press we learn that during the BIS of the FCI World Dog Show 2019 in Shanghai, a historical agreement was signed between China Small Animal Protection Association/CKU Charity and China Children Foundation, the biggest national organisation for children.
In the framework of this co-operation, a nationwide education programme will be carried out to teach children in all primary schools about the importance of caring for animals. Congratulations on this initiative.
