This special day was established in 1931 by ecologists in Florence in Italy and has now spread around the world, celebrating not just endangered and rare species, but all kinds of animal life.

And the date 4 October is no coincidence – it is the same day as the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.

There are lots of ways to get involved on World Animal Day, like donating tins of cat and dog food to local shelters.  In Kusadasi you can help directly by donating to our own local animal welfare group Paws and Claws.

Here in Turkey many supermarkets reduce pet food by 50% and this reduction runs for a few days.  I have already read on another post that Migros have already cut prices of their pet foods.
