The 2nd “Kakato® Animal Furdel Awards” has begun, featuring three categories: “Furdel Cat”, “Furdel Dog” and “Furkid Angel”. These awards aim to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions towards animal, as well as cats and dogs whose inspiring stories have had a positive impact. This year marks the first time that public nominations are being accepted, with the goal of encouraging more people to participate and share their heartwarming stories about their pets.

Through furdels’ stories to inspire people to take care of animals, respecting their lives and promoting a harmonious society where humans and pets can coexist. The awards also aim to raise awareness and support for pet adoption and providing warm homes for stray animals in need.

During the nomination process, we discovered the positive energy that animals bring to humans. Despite facing misfortunes or physical disabilities, they can still overcome difficulties and demonstrate their vitality and worth. This spirit is deserving of our respect and praise.

The results of the “Kakato® Animal Furdel Awards” will be determined by a professional judging panel (40%) and public voting (60%) to select the best “Furdel”.  Winners and their nominators will receive prizes and gifts with a total value of over HKD110,000, supporting inspiring stories of cats and dogs and the angels who work tirelessly for animal welfare.
