Today is World Animal Day
MISSION: TO RAISE THE STATUS OF ANIMALS IN ORDER TO IMPROVE WELFARE STANDARDS AROUND THE GLOBE
From bees to pigs, to jungle, savannah, desert, sea animals, 4, 6, 8 legged, winged and finned animals, and of course our pets, every single one of them is essential to life on this gorgeous Planet.
"The lives of animals are profoundly affected by the actions of individuals, businesses, and nations.
World Animal Day embraces all animals and the unique concerns of each, in every country. Through increased awareness and education, we can help develop a compassionate culture which feeds into legal reform and social progress to make this world a fairer place for all living creatures"
Let's never forget that "Animals are an integral part of our ecosystem as much as humans and plants. The role of animals is insurmountable in our scheme of life. Right from maintaining ecological balance (decomposition, furnishing nutrients, carbon, nitrogen cycle, environmental protection) to bringing about human wellness, animals are crucial."
There will be many events on World animal day, and to summarize their significance, in the words of Richard Gere “As custodians of the planet, it is our responsibility to deal with all species with kindness, love and compassion. That these animals suffer through human cruelty is beyond understanding. Please help stop this madness”
- Do you support and contribute to animal causes?
- If you have a pet, did you buy him/her from a breeder or rescue him/her from a shelter?
- Do you have a mindset that each living being on this Planet has a reason for being, and therefore is to be respected?
-How do your pets help you keep your sanity?
He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals. - Kant
