World Animal Day 2020

MISSION OF WORLD ANIMAL DAY

To raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe. 

Building the celebration of World Animal Day unites the animal welfare movement, mobilising it into a global force to make the world a better place for all animals.  

It's celebrated in different ways in every country, irrespective of nationality, religion, faith or political ideology.  

Through increased awareness and education we can create a world where animals are always recognised as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare.

Animals are welcome here. In fact, more than most humans...

We do love our animal pals, well, except the coyote that ate some of our ferals.
