October 4 is World Animal Day, which is also the feast day of the Venerated Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Its mission is to raise awareness that animals’ status needs to be elevated to improve our welfare conditions around the globe. This day was humbly initiated almost 100 years ago and now has become a popular worldwide movement. Today, World Animal Day has become an internationally recognized brand and platform to promote animal welfare issues. More than 1,000 associated events are held every year and #WorldAnimalDay trends on social media all over the world. This day of love is celebrated in many different ways in many countries, regardless of differences in nationality, religion, or political ideology. Everyone can join in and contribute to this memorable occasion as animal welfare organizations, community groups, schools, businesses, and individuals are all encouraged to organize a celebration under the World Animal Day umbrella and use the same logo. The events are publicized on the website: WorldAnimalDay.org.uk. World Animal Day has led to substantial contributions in improving the well-being of animals, and its influence has increased over time. World Animal Day is an invaluable platform to encourage people worldwide to become involved in celebrating animals. We hope that you are inspired to join or organize an event, make a donation to your favorite animal charity, host a fundraising event for an animal sanctuary, or create a petition to ask for changes in the law to safeguard us. If you don’t have time to help with an event, you can also share World Animal Day news and posts with your friends. You can add the logo to your social media profile, or use #WorldAnimalDay to raise global awareness. Anything created under the World Animal Day umbrella, no matter how small it may seem to be, will generate positive energy and make the planet a better place for us animals. We look forward to the day that all animals and humans can live together in love and peace. And, if you aren’t already, please be vegan for the sake of all animals. When you eat plant-based, you immediately save animal lives and help ensure there is a beautiful planet, teeming with life, for future generations to enjoy.
