Be a part of World Animal Day!
FOUR PAWS and the National Council for Animal Protection (NCAP) are working together with Naturewatch Foundation in the United Kingdom to spread the word about World Animal Day in the US.
World Animal Day comes every year on October 4th to remind all of us to speak up for those who have no voice!
Here is some information from the World Animal Day Team:
Why do we celebrate 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.
How can your organization, school, shelter, business or individual can get involved:
Help raise the status of animals around the globe
- Print an 'I Care About Animals - Get Involved in the World Animal Day Challenge' poster.
- Take a selfie with it and share far and wide across all social media platforms using the #WorldAnimalDay.
- Email it to us at email@example.com for publication on our social media platforms.
Printing the poster
- Please print in colour if you can; otherwise black and white is fine.
- If you don't have a printer, please open the 'Show you care - Get involved in World Animal Day' poster on a phone or tablet screen and hold it up while you take a photo!
Take the 'selfie challenge' and why not challenge your friends to do the same. Sharing selfies will help tremendously to raise global awareness of World Animal Day and encourage participation in celebrating this special day.
