Several protective shelters and associations working at a regional level in the defense and care of animals were also installed, which made their work known during the day.

At around 1:00 p.m. La Puntica beach hosted the aquatic rescue exhibition, in charge of the rescue group Grescan, in which lifeguards and dogs of different breeds showed their skills in situations of risk.

The day concluded with the delivery of the Bruno Awards, which in this edition was awarded to Quinto, a dog that for almost a decade belonged to the Military Emergency Unit in Valencia-Bétera, standing out for its ability in detection, being a military champion of rescue and participating in important search and rescue operations such as the earthquake in Lorca, or the floods of Sant Llorenç (Mallorca) last summer.

This award was also given to the Protective Association of abandoned dogs of Los Belones, with more than 30 years of experience and that rescues hundreds of animals a year thanks to the work of dozens of volunteers.

Finally, a donation from Kiwoko was also given to the participating associations and protectors.
