Awareness Days

World Animal Day4 October 2023  

World Animal Day is celebrated on the 4th of October and its mission is to raise the status of animals to improve global welfare standards. Its establishment in 1931 was a way of highlighting endangered species but has since grown to encompass more elements of animal welfare and awareness. October 4th was chosen as it coincides with the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi who was a saint well known for being an animal lover, but World Animal Day is not affiliated with any religion and is celebrated across the world.
