Tails of The City : Pet Welfare Centre
+ issues regarding animals have always moved me & the passing of my late foster pet has inspired the creation of this project in efforts to hopefully spark a second thought in us on how the animal welfares should be always protected & improved. I hope it speaks for our furry friends who couldn't speak for themselves +
+ the project aims to inspire & spread awareness regarding the issues of pet welfare / human-pet interaction for a healthier, more balance & responsible society.
