World Animal Day
Since the official World Animal Day website was launched by Naturewatch UK on 4 October 2003, the number of events taking place throughout the world has increased year upon year, and with your help we can ensure this trend continues. And that is the aim of the World Animal Day initiative: to encourage everybody to use this special day to commemorate their love and respect for animals by doing something special to highlight their importance in the world. Increased awareness will lead the way to improved standards of animal welfare throughout the world. Building the World Animal Day initiative is a wonderful way to unite the animal welfare movement and something that everyone can join in with whether they are part of an organisation, group, or as an individual. Through education we can help create a new culture of respect and sensitivity, to make this world a fairer place for all living creatures.On this website you will find everything you need to make World Animal Day a reality in your area and there’s no better time than now to start making plans! If you care about animals, don’t miss this special opportunity to help make animal welfare issues front page news around the globe – a vital catalyst for change.
