Many forget that animals are sentient beings too, and should be treated accordingly

Started by Heinrich Zimmermann in 1925, World Animal Day aims to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe. Animal cruelty remains a widespread problem, although there are various welfare organizations across the globe acting as watchdogs.

World Animal Day is an effort to increase awareness so one day we may have a world where we no longer hear about puppies being buried alive in our own city.
