Rescued does not mean damaged
It means it has been let down by humans
You can't change a dog past
but you can rewrite it's future
Second hand pets
make first class animals
I adopted my
best friend
I got to grow old
because I was adopted

I, Elena Smirnova had a long-cherished dream of saving pets, starting from her early childhood. I came into contact on social media with volunteers in Russia and in the Netherlands, and after some evening talks between me and my husband, Cosmopolitan Pets was born!

There are many pets who are left to die on the streets of Russia, just because people don’t want them, or they get born into the wild. There is a huge pet problem in Russia, just because on one hand there’s not an effective sterilization program, and on the other side, people don’t really care about them.

Many of them end up in shelters, or just die without ever have the change on a warm life. Many of them are found at abandoned places like industrial areas, vacation houses or just in garbage containers on the streets of Russia.

Luckily there are many volunteers in Russia that have a hart for those poor souls, and rescue them. Once puppies or kittens are rescued, they take them into safety in forms of foster families, go to the vet to get a full checkup, get vaccinated, fed and are nursed back to health. Once they are healthy, and at least 4 months old, they are ready to travel and find a golden basket.

Our dream is to open up a shelter in Holland soon, and transform this into a five star pet hotel as well. We hope to grow bigger, without loosing our core values, and help more pets all over the world!
