Animal Day is the day when we give the animals extra attention. People want to show that animals have rights on this day and that animals should be protected.
The date of the Animal is the feast day of Francis of Assisi. This feast took place on 4 October. Francis of Assisi was a man who cared for the poor and homeless, but also to plants and animals. At an international conference of associations for the protection of animals in 1929 October 4 was officially proclaimed World Animal Day. The first Animal Day took place on October 4, 1930.
World Animal Day is celebrated by animals to impose extra pampered. Pet stores have also often special offers to pamper pets extra. In addition, Animal is now widely used by animal rights activists. They ask that day extra attention to animal rights.
