Dilara Kazimova and András Kállay-Saunders, representatives of Azerbaijan and Hungary took the opportunity to do a volunteer shift at Dyrevaenets, an animal shelter in Copenhagen. It started with a tour around the shelter and a short introduction about how the individual should treat animals.

Both Dilara and Andras had a chance to see how dogs, cats, and rabbits live there, been taken care of and cured. Eventually, they also had the opportunity to walk two dogs, one each: a dachshund called Nanna and a Jack Russell Terrier named Quick. It was quite an emotional moment when both Dilara and Andras both gave the dogs special tags with the wording "From Azerbaijan with Love" and "From Hungary with Love" respectively. Dilara is an activist for animal protection in Baku. She's got a beautiful dachshund and a cat back in Baku. 

She does not wear fur and takes part in charity events aimed to raise awareness on animal rights in society. "I was very interested to see how shelter is organised and managed in Denmark, so that maybe one day I can open my own in Baku? The visit was very emotional and I wanted to adopt every single dog there. They are so cute and loving!” says Dilara. After the visit Dilara got another idea how to contribute to the Dyreværnets shelter. She will reveal details about this project on May 2nd at 16:50 during her official press conference at Eurovision 2014.
