The 30th of November was World Pet Day and what could be a better way to celebrate this date than by showing our adorable companions that we care about them? That's what players for Football Club (FC) Zenit, also known as Zenit Saint Petersburg, did!
Zenit have joined forces with the Russian Kynological Foundation and walked out into the Gazprom Arena with dogs in their arms, hoping to boost adoption.
