World Stray Animals Day – TODAY April 4th

404225_355466324487186_16206441_nWe would, once again, like to draw everyone’s attention to the 3rd WORLD STRAY ANIMALS DAY which is TODAY April 4, a day when we should all show compassion, care and action for all stray dogs, stray cats, stray horses and donkeys all over the World.

This initiative was first started by a Dutch marketing guru at the Dutch National Stray Animals Conference held back in 2010 and today, more and more people have become aware of this growing problem throughout the world.

It is incredibly heartbreaking to see the amount of animals that are considered as strays.  Estimated numbers are said to reach approximately an incredible 600.000.000!

A Stray Animals Day website http://www.worldstrayanimalsday.org helps give plenty of ideas for everyone to work in helping to reduce this problem.  Check out their Facebook page for even further information.

Maria Daines wrote a special song to commemorate April 4th, World Stray Animals Day. Please take a moment to listen and watch the video here.

Although very often short of space, Aanifeira has done its part throughout last year in taking in strays and the results of some of them can be viewed below.

LET’S NOT FORGET THE STRAYS IN THIS WORLD

AND JOIN TOGETHER TO RID THE WORLD OF THIS PROBLEM.
