October 4th is a day for all animals, everywhere. It’s World Animal Day.
Last year – 2008 – I was truly honoured to become the UK Ambassador to World Animal Day. Throughout the year we try and do our bit, however small, to improve the lives of animals, in whatever capacity we can achieve those aims. It seems like such an uphill battle, I have nothing but admiration for those folks who are on the ‘frontline’ witnessing what must seem like a tidal wave of abuse, neglect, cruelty or just plain ignorance that causes animals to suffer in one way or another. So for this year’s World Animal Day I’d like to extend an appeal to everyone to help, it will take literally seconds out of your day and can/will mean so much.
