World Animal Day

World Animal Day is October 4th.? The day celebrates all animals, no matter what kind, where they are, what they do.

Many churches do a Blessing of the Animals on October 3rd, or the Sunday closest to the 4th during that year.? There are different ways of celebrating all over the world.

October 4th was orginally chosen because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, who is recognized as the patron saint of animals, but is celebrated by people of all beliefs, religions, and opinions.
