Pets and their owners will have the chance to find whatever they wish for. High-quality food from ΚΥΟΝ, but also organic unprocessed choices based on the BARF diet from Nature’s Food. Delicacies, accessories and toys in Pawbox’s indie boutique for cats and dogs, toiletries and grooming services from NanoSanitas.
Eugenia Samara and her colleagues will introduce us to Your Pet App, a Greek platform/app that offers help to animals in need, while the independent animal welfare group Adespota Exarcheia, will be in the Market’s space along with their merch.

The experienced specialists of Dog Society will reveal secrets and innovative ways on how dogs can interact and adapt properly to their environment.
