World Animal Day
International Day, aimed at attracting the attention of mankind to the rights of animals and their welfare, is celebrated annually on October 4th.
The story of this day begins with an international congress of supporters of the animal rights movement, which took place in Florence (Italy) in 1931. The date of World Animal Day was chosen not by chance. October 4th is the day of remembrance of Francis of Assisi, who is considered to be the saint patron of animals, so the congress participants stopped at this very day. On this day, various animal rights societies hold campaigns in 66 countries. They urge people to abandon the rash destruction of animals in order to meet their all needs.
In addition, World Animal Day is an occasion to remind people of their responsibility for pets, which for many people have become truly irreplaceable members of the family.
