Here at The Donkey Sanctuary we are getting together with our donkeys and mules to celebrate World Animal Day.
Sunday, October 4, marks the global event which aims to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the world.
The Donkey Sanctuary works to strive towards our vision of creating a world where donkeys and mules live free form suffering, and their contribution to humanity is fully valued.
We are delighted to be joining the Global Wave of selfies in a bid to boost the awareness of World Animal Day!.
MISSION OF 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.
