World Animal Day is a special day to commemorate the respect and love we have for animals and also to bring attention to the importance of animals and raise awareness for them. It began in 1931 in Florence at a convention of ecologists as a means to highlight endangered species. Since then it has developed to include all animal life and countries around the world participate in and celebrate this day. World Animal Day is celebrated on October 4th – The Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi who is the patron saint of animals.

Thank you again for you ongoing support of Tony. We remain positive and dedicated to ensuring his release to a reputable big cat sanctuary.
