World For All Animal Care & Adoptions hosted the 3rd edition of India's largest stray animal adoption camp-Adoptathon, over the weekend which witnessed ardent animal lovers and celebrities alike thronging the event.
The celebrities who attended the event on Day 1 included Kalki Koeclin, Priyanka Bose, Gulshan Devaiyah and his wife Kalliroi Tzaifeta where they discussed the benefits of adopting stray animals as well as their personal experiences with adopting strays.
Kalki Koechlin further added "Hey everybody! I am a part of World For All.. at least I am a part of it from today I am. I love what you are doing and thank you for doing it. I hope we do create a world for everybody! "
The celebrities who attended the event on Day 2 included Imran Khan, Sonali Bendre Harish Iyer and Nisha Rawal. Imran Khan who has always stood for this noble cause said, "I've always believed in adopting animals. We have 8 pets - 2 dogs and 8 cats. Some I've picked up myself - some my mom and … rather than a breed or paying someone money for a trophy showpiece, it is about giving a home to an animal, which will otherwise die. And I wanna send the encouragement to adopt pets rather than buy them. So please, please please do not buy animals. Adopt them."
The event was extremely successful with maximum adoptions that took place and footfalls much higher than 2011 and 2012.
Ruchi Nadkarni, Founder & CEO, World for All said,"We are thrilled at the turnout and the amount of adoptions that took place at this years Adoptathon. It was especially heartening to see young children walk in with their parents to take a new friend and family member home. This makes us believe that the next generations of youngsters will be the new trendsetters for our world."
Taronish Bulsara, Co-Founder of World for All added,"We wrapped up this years Adoptathon in a splendid way, and are already receiving calls about when we would host it next. The city has shown a tremendous amount of love for its stray animals.. and we hope that it continues to do so in the future."
