World Animal Day
World Animal Day 2015
An International Day For World Animal Protection.
Sunday, October 4, 2014
World Animal Day is held every year on October 4th, which is the Feast Day of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. World Animal Day focuses on the well-being of all animals world wide and brings animal rights to the forefront of conversation. Currently, we are also trying to tackle this issue head-on. A portion of each sale is directly donated to the Fish and Wildlife Foundation of Florida.
