Next Sunday (St Francis day) is World Animal Day or in French, Journée Mondiale des animaux, a day to celebrate animals and the relationships us humans have with them. Events are hosted throughout the world in recognition of animals, how they enrich our lives and most importantly what we can do to help them. Have a look on the WAD website to see if there is an event happening near you. It is also a day when villages and towns throughout the world hold ‘animal blessing’ services.
The WSPA take this opportunity to run World Animal Week from October 4th – 10th. If you want to get involved in one of their activities have a look here.
At ERF we would like people to take some time to think about the equines here in France, and ask yourself if there is anything you as an individual can do to improve the life for equines over here. Maybe now is the time to consider reporting that equine you’ve been concerned about, signing a welfare petition, adopting an equine needing a home, organising a fundraising event, donating or just spreading the word on correct equine management.
