Naturewatch Foundation is proud to coordinate the celebration of World Animal Day which takes place on October 4 every year. World Animal Day embraces all animals and seeks to raise the status of animals around the globe.

The lives of animals are profoundly affected by the actions of individuals, businesses, and nations. This year, important new animal welfare laws are being discussed in the UK.

As a result, we are asking MPs to join in the celebration of animals including by signing an ‘Early Day Motion’ in Parliament to draw attention to World Animal Day.

Naturewatch Foundation is proud to coordinate the celebration of World Animal Day which takes place on October 4 every year. World Animal Day embraces all animals and seeks to raise the status of animals around the globe.

The lives of animals are profoundly affected by the actions of individuals, businesses, and nations. This year, important new animal welfare laws are being discussed in the UK.

As a result, we are asking MPs to join in the celebration of animals including by signing an ‘Early Day Motion’ in Parliament to draw attention to World Animal Day.

The Early Day Motion has been kindly tabled by Dr Lisa Cameron MP, Chair of the All Party Dog Advisory Welfare Group, and reads:

“That this House recognises that 4 October 2020 is World Animal Day, the global awareness day for raising the status of animals in order to improve animal welfare standards; gives thanks to all those people who care for animals; congratulates charities and people who work tirelessly to support and raise awareness of animal welfare; acknowledges the link between cruelty to animals and violence towards humans; notes the tangible benefits of people's relationships with companion animals, as therapy, assistants to people who are blind or disabled, and friends to people who are socially isolated; notes the importance of nature and wildlife conservation and protection; and further notes that through increased awareness and education a world can be created where animals are always recognised as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare; and encourages everyone to show their support for animals in the lead up to and on World Animal Day itself.”

Ministers and front bench spokespeople do not sign EDMs and therefore we have suggested other activities they may wish to participate in.
