They don't know how to betray.

They don't know what cowardice and meanness are.

Their actions are admired.

And exploits make us remember,

That we are people!

And we are responsible for those who have been tamed!

«About the Award»

Our cozy Zelenogradsk has been associated in the world for a long time as a city of hospitable people and friendly cats.

And it is no coincidence - the residents of our city considered it unfair that the world annually pays tribute to people who showed heroism and bravery, who made important discoveries for our civilization, but, unfortunately, our furry friends remain without attention. Friends who sometimes perform real feats or simply bring harmony into our lives with their actions.

Therefore, in 2019 we established an award the main contenders for which were and will remain those who are always with us. Those who do not know how to betray. Those who make this complex and sometimes crazy world much kinder and wiser.
I believe that our idea will make life on planet Earth a little better. I have no doubt that over time the award "My affectionate and necessary animal" will only gain popularity and its geography will expand day by day.

And every year in our wonderful city we will reward loyal and reliable friends who have done truly human deeds.
Head of the Administration of the Zelenogradsk Municipal District
Sergey Koshevoy
