On Sunday we celebrated World Animal Day at the sanctuary. This day is commemorated world wide to bring awareness to improving the lives of animals everywhere. The mission of this movement is to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe. Building the celebration of World Animal Day unites the animal welfare movement, mobilizing it into a global force to make the world a better place for animals. It’s celebrated in different ways in different countries, irrespective of nationality, religion, faith or politicalideology. Through increased awareness and education we can create aworld where animals are always recognized as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare.
The mission at the sanctuary is no donkey will be turned away and there are over 40 rescued donkeys, mules and hinnies. There are also numerous cats, 3 pigs, 3 goats and a sheep.
The celebration Sunday here was a great success with many visitors learning about our animals and donating generously. Thank you to all.
