On World Animal Day, animal lovers unite to educate others and advocate for action against animal cruelty, neglect and any unfair treatment of animals. This year’s theme for World Animal Day is “Great or Small, Love Them All”. With this theme, the goal is to bring to light the importance of all beings, great and small, and allow the opportunity for even the most overlooked animals to be appreciated for what and who they are. World Animal Day | October 4 - Calendarr“Whether it’s our beloved companions at home or the wild animals we admire from afar, animals of all shapes and sizes play a critical role in our lives.

History of World Animal Day

World Animal Day has been marked since 1925. According to World Animal Protection, it was started by Heinrich Zimmermann, a cynologist, who organised the first celebration at the Sports Palace in Berlin, which was reportedly attended by over 5,000 people.Heinrich Zimmermann - Wikidata Heinrich Zimmermann

To further expand the reach of this event, in 2003, the UK-based animal welfare charity, Naturewatch Foundation, introduced the World Animal Day website. This initiative aimed to connect with and involve even more people in the cause.
