The cute dresses not only keep them warm, but also create a joyful Xmas atmosphere. All grown-ups and children who passed by the booth all stopped their steps and started to interact with fur babies one after another, making the venue full of laughter! Besides, in the check-ins zone, there was a human-size animal standee holding a Xmas wreath of “Adopt, Don't Abandon”.
