  • Another good, kind sculptural composition in Tyumen. Awakens in us the good, bright feelings. By the way, the homeless dogs (no wonder that say that they are the smartest) long "prosekli chip" and constantly on duty somewhere nearby, apparently the place "prikormlenoe":)

  • June 25, 2010 year in Tyumen honorary monument was inaugurated a stray dog. The monument was erected in the city centre, where a lot of people walking. This is actually a monument-piggy and the funds are collected from banks once a week and go to the needs of the orphanage (street Golysheva House 1). The sculpture of the homeless tykes with outstretched paw (height 45 cm) was established by the Tyumen companies other Tyumen company assumed landscaping, paving, lawns was made. Officially the monument called "Like a dog", but I think that this is not entirely correct, because the homeless are not only dogs, but also cats, and though rare, but other animals are homeless. So even the name of the monument homeless dog is more suitable because it says more about what a homeless animal, rather than the classification of the animal. But the name does not matter, each can call as he wants. The main thing is that the people he liked and only during the first week of the monument-piggy gathered on the order of 80 thousand rubles. And covered the year amount reached 440 thousand rubles. Every penny went exclusively on animals. It was built for them a few extra enclosures, and the rest of the money went for treatment. Tyumen is not the only city that has such a monument. There and in other cities and countries. A pleasant surprise is that among the coins in a piggy bank are as large (1000 rubles) banknotes and coins of different countries that says not foreign visitors. And you put (coin)?

  • Sculpture little tousled dogs, which stretches passers-by paw, installed in Central Park. Beside her Bowl with a hole for the donations and the inscription "Like a stray dog, bezrodnuû, lonely". Money raised goes to the substance of the nursery for homeless dogs. The sculpture does not leave indifferent bystanders, and coins fall in your piggy bank.
