World Animal Day was started in 1931 by ecologists in Florence, Italy who wished to bring attention to the plight of endangered animals. October 4 was chosen because it is the Feast Day of St. Francis, the patron saint of animals. Today World Animal Day is observed in countries throughout the world.
World Animal Day
Many people advocate for animals. The reason is that even though animals can feel pain and suffer just as we do, they do not have a way to advocate on their own behalf. In fact, animals are viewed by many as nothing more than property to be treated as the owner wishes. This view has created an inhumane situation for billions of animals that share our world.
