4th October World Animal Day 2012

World Animal Day

Today is World Animal Day, which is a day where we should reflect on animals and how they make the world we live in, a nicer place to be.
On this day we should celebrate the lives of animals, value the relationship we have with animals, appreciate the important roles that animals carry out and show thanks for the way that animals enrich our lives.
Not only on this day, but everyday we should appreciate all kinds of animals and the joy that they bring to this world and we can do this simply by giving them respect and showing kindness and compassion towards them.
World Animal Day is recognised globally and many events are held all around the world to raise awareness about animals and to give care to all types of animals, stray and owned.

For example; In Panama the Panamanian Health Ministry, local authorities, Angeles de los Animales and Fundacion Spay/Panama are carrying out a mega spay event, which will be held over four days in Santiago de Veraguas. This spay event will be carried out in order to help efficiently and humanely control the stray dog population there.
