This summer, a film crew of the Secret Millionaire TV show arrived at the animal refuge run by the veterinary surgeon Karen Dallakyan.
Playing the “Popular blogger”, GetTaxi owner Vladimir Marinovich visited Mr Dallakyan. For two days his team video recorded the shelter “Save Me” allegedly for his blog. Besides, the businessman was helping the shelter staff in taking care of the animals.
After examining the situation well, Mr Marinovich decided to help the shelter in saving animals.
The second “shooting” day, he arrived and handed a RUB 600,000 certificate to Mr Dallakyan.
“At that moment I broke out in a cold sweat and my eyes brimmed with tears. I literally could not say anything, even thank him,” Mr Dallakyan says.
The money will be spent on saving two cute cubs – leopard Eva and tiger Hector.
