European Pet Night 2013

Brussels, 20 February 2023

The 9th European Pet Night was celebrated on 20 February 2023 under the patronage of Members of the European Parliament Dr. Horst Schnellhardt and Maria Irigoyen. 


Bart Weetjens, founder of APOPO, showed us how the association’s HeroRATs, working together with their human colleagues, help save lives and limbs in developing countries by using their exceptional sense of smell to sniff out unexploded landmines and tuberculosis.



European Pet Night 2013 also featured a supporting speaker from, Activ'dog to highlight the therapeutic benefits of pets with the elderly in line with the European Initiative on Active and Healthy Ageing.
