I don't think that World Animal Day is day for celebration. It was originally started in 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence, as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species, and in 2014 we - humans, do not have any reason to celebrate our achievements (maybe efforts) for - even more, endangered animals.

Today I was volunteering again at the WeSNIP Garage Sale. We provide low cost spay and neuter services and do TNR for feral cat colonies here in Bellingham, WA and in our county too. Yesterday was the biggest one day total we've ever had. We made $15,000 and it's because we have awesome volunteers who have worked for months to make it happen. I salute them all. I hope we did well today and tomorrow everything will be half price. Then we get to restock and do it all over again for next weekend. We do it twice a year and the entire community and visitors from Canada come for the event. Thanks also to all the people who donated their furniture and belongings to our sale. It's all for the Animals and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Thank you , Sharon :)
Maybe no reasons to celebrate, I agree with you, Ljiljana ... a day for AWARENESS should sound .. better.
I've learned that tomorrow, OCTOBER 5th is BEAR AWARENESS DAY !

Thank you Sharon. Many of us on Care2 are already involved in animal welfare organizations and activities but the best thing about having these special days is that they promote awareness among people who don't know much about animal welfare issues and motivate them to get involved.

Since 1931 World Animal Day has become a day for remembering and paying tribute to all animals and the people who love and respect them. It's celebrated in different ways in every country, with no regard to nationality, religion, faith or political ideology.

World Animal Day – a special opportunity for everyone who cares about animals


To celebrate animal life in all its forms
To celebrate humankind’s relationship with the animal kingdom
To acknowledge the diverse roles that animals play in our lives – from being our companions, supporting and helping us, to bringing a sense of wonder into our lives
To acknowledge and be thankful for the way in which animals enrich our lives

The aim of World Animal Day is to improve animal welfare standards worldwide through the support and involvement of individuals, groups and organisations that care about animals. Building the celebration of World Animal Day is a wonderful way to unite the animal welfare movement around the world, embracing all animals and the unique concerns of each in every country. We 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. It’s something that everyone can join in with whether they are part of an organisation, group, or an individual. It’s celebrated in different ways in every country, with no regard to nationality, religion, faith or political ideology. 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!

it’s a day that should benefit animals and the people who strive to improve their welfare standards! World Animal Day belongs to everyone!

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! Through increased awareness and education we can help create a new culture of respect and sensitivity, to make this world a fairer place for all living creatures.

Be part of something special!
YOU can get involved in celebrating World Animal Day

Je n'ai pas trouvé les pétitions. Pour moi, cette journée doit symboliser l'importance que nous devons accorder aux animaux et toute la lutte qu'il nous reste à faire pour arriver à ce que les choses changent enfin pour eux.

It was very disturbing to hear that 40% of the world's animals had vanished n the last 40 years recently
