Pets in Costumes – level 2

27-10-2017 07:00

Nearly 70 pets took part in a costume competition in Manila, Philippines. The competition is called ‘Scaredy Cats and Dogs’, and there was even one guinea pig.

A charity organises the event, and the charity is called the Philippine Animal Welfare Society or PAWS. The organisation hopes that people will see animals differently, adopt them, and not hurt them.

Difficult words: take part (do something), costume (clothes which make you look like somebody else), competition (an event where you try to win).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
