World Animal Day was observed earlier this month - on October 4th. Started in Florence Italy in 1931 at a convention of ecologists, World Animal Day has since expanded its focus from its original intent, which was to bring attention to endangered or threatened species. The day is now set aside as a time to reflect on all of the animals we share this world with, and our involvement with them - and to spur action to commemorate that respectful relationship. Half the world's mammals are declining in population and more than a third are probably threatened with extinction, according to an update of of the Red List (an inventory of biodiversity issued by the IUCN), released on October 6, 2008. Below is a collection of recent photos of animals around the world 

MISSION: TO RAISE THE STATUS OF ANIMALS IN ORDER TO IMPROVE WELFARE STANDARDS AROUND THE GLOBE

Why celebrate World Animal Day?

Building the celebration of World Animal Day mobilises people for action now for a better future for animals.

Throughout history, social movements (mass actions) like World Animal Day, have always been a major vehicle for ordinary people’s participation in politics, and key in fighting for social justice and reform. The lives of animals are profoundly affected by the actions of individuals, businesses, and nations.  It’s therefore essential that, as sentient beings, their rightful status as recipients of social justice is established and translated into effective animal protection.  Through increased awareness and education, we can help develop a compassionate culture which feeds into legal reform and social progress to make this world a fairer place for all living creatures.  A world where animals are recognised as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare.

There are other days linked to animals such as: World Day for Laboratory Animals on 24 April and World Wildlife Day on 3 March, and these are important too. However, World Animal Day is the one day of the year that embraces all animals and the unique concerns of each, in every country. It’s a special opportunity to commemorate our love and respect for animals by doing something special to highlight their importance in the world.  It unites the animal welfare movement, mobilising it into a global force for change. Participation in celebrating World Animal Day grows each year, with a huge variety of inspiring events being held in an increasing number of countries. In 2003, we recorded 44 events being held in 13 countries and this has now grown to an estimated 1000 events in around 100 countries.

Types of events held: 

  • awareness & educational events;
  • shelter open days & pet adoption events;
  • conferences & workshops;
  • animal blessing services;
  • fundraising events such as concerts and sponsored walks through to gala balls;
  • school events to educate the younger generation such as animal-related competitions, concerts & film shows;
  • workshops to educate the owners of working animals;
  • spay & neuter marathons and veterinary treatment camps;
  • rabies prevention awareness and vaccination;
  • radio & TV interviews to raise awareness of animal issues & World Animal Day and its mission
  • peaceful protest marches to either raise awareness of a specific animal welfare issue or to encourage governments to introduce animal protection legislation.

Increased awareness, combined with better education for both adults and children, is slowly swaying the attitudes of people towards treating animals in a humane and compassionate way. 

Examples of what World Animal Day has already achieved for animals (coming soon)

World Animal Day Ambassadors 

In 2007 we launched our Ambassador programme and began on the journey to appoint one Ambassador in every country.  We are very proud of our current team of Ambassadors who are actively introducing World Animal Day in many countries around the world, connecting millions of animal advocates and successfully uniting the animal welfare movement in celebration of this special day.
