The International Day of Animal Protection is a holiday for those who are not indifferent to our smaller brothers
The International Day for the Protection of Animals is a holiday that has long been known all over the world. This event should draw people's attention not only to their own problems, but also to the lives of other inhabitants of our planet.
International Day for the Protection of Animals - October 4
It's not a secret that every year more and more different species die out - from one to five. The rate of disappearance does not cease to increase. Of course, this factor is very sad.
The future of animals today is threatened by a lot of diverse things. Excessive consumption of natural resources, destruction of forest and wetlands for the construction of new roads and sites, poaching destroy millions of innocent creatures. The International Day for the Protection of Animals is a holiday created especially for them.
This concerns, among other things, not only wild animals. Pets should also be protected, because the number of people who abuse them violently increases every year.
A bit of history
The roots of this wonderful holiday go back in 1931. The International Day of Animal Protection began to be celebrated in Italy. It was a way of drawing attention to the terrible situation of endangered species. At that time in Florence, a congress of supporters of the conservation of nature took place. Since October 4, they have honored all existing animals in the world.
This date is not chosen by chance. It is the day of the memory of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.He died in 1226, on October 4. That's why the congress stopped at this date. So the World Animal Day appeared. The history and peculiarities of the holiday are known all over the world today. More than 60 countries host a variety of events dedicated to this date.
Pay attention to the unfortunate animals!
Humanity in recent years, of course, greatly hardened. However, not indifferent people in this world is still quite a lot. The International Day for the Protection of Animals should draw their attention to many of the problems of the inhabitants of the planet Earth. The idea of the celebration has long been adopted all over the world. It pleases, because in the last 25 years the diversity of our planet's flora and fauna has reduced by a third! Accordingly, it is necessary to do something, take some measures! This holiday does not let about it to forget.
Animals are the best rescuers.
Many ancient traditions exist about Francis of Assisi. If they believe, he was able to communicate with any animals. In turn, they obeyed him and defended him.
Animals are actually the best rescuers. Repeatedly they rescued the person in difficult situations. Dogs serve as guides and rescue people in the mountains, cats are charged with positive energy and even "treat" the diseased parts of the body. Moreover, there were absolutely incredible cases when the child was protected by a gorilla, or else the whale pulled a drowning diver from the depths of the ocean.
... however, people do not lag behind!
Nevertheless, the man also repeatedly acted as a rescuer. What is the story about the champion from Colorado, who returned home from Sochi not only with medals, but also with grateful dogs.The Olympic Games demanded the so-called "cleansing" of the city from homeless animals. Gus Kenworthy was able to save four-legged friends from death by taking them with them. Together with his friend Robin MacDonald, the twenty-two-year-old freestyler began to cooperate with the International Humanitarian Organization. It was she who helped to transport the dogs to America.
In addition, Kenworthy and McDonald created a special account called "Sochi Pups". Here you can look at their favorites. Just a week for the account was already signed by 17,000 users. On International Day for the Protection of Stray Animals, they massively went here to leave new comments.
On the eve of the holiday, by the way, you can also get a special award named after St. Francis. She is awarded for special services in the field of animal welfare. Gus Kenworthy clearly deserved this award!
What can be done for our smaller brothers?
So how to help little animals? What can be done to support the International Day of Animal Rights?
First, just join a special defense society. There will be a very large number of various actions aimed at attracting public attention to our four-legged friends.
The International Animal Protection Day, for example, is held not only with the organization of various competitions for animals, but also with charity concerts with the participation of local musical groups.
In a word, similar initiatives are being implemented in different countries of the world every year. People on this day even come to nurseries, where many homeless urban animals as a result find their owners. Here those who wish to find a real friend will necessarily give the necessary advice, all the recommendations for caring for the pet, will tell you about the method of identification in a new family.
And to help wild animals that need human participation, even a special rescue service has been created. All interested persons can contact the hotline. Employees of the service are always happy to take all necessary measures: to cure their patients or to provide them with a new home. That is, the organization aspires by all means to show that every animal deserves respect and dignity on the part of a person.
