What is World Animal Day?
World Animal Day is a special opportunity for anyone who loves animals. It was started in 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species. Since then it has grown to encompass all kinds of animal life and is widely celebrated in countries throughout the world. October 4 was chosen as World Animal Day as it is the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.
Come live it up with the party animals.
Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers,
for making this special event possible.
