Special celebration of World Animal Day in Syria

World Animal Day in Syria 2014 is different from all previous years. The animal protection project in Syria was not going to celebrate this day because of limited means available for the project and its inability to provide necessary help for the sick and tired animals working with their maximum capacities to help poor families in land cultivation and agriculture with the onset of winter crops.

But the arrival of World Animal Day this year coincided with the start of Eid al-Adha which made us active in this holiday to make people aware of animal compassion and kindness.  We asked people to replace animal sacrifice in this holiday to pay instead money for social charities and poor families.  The beautiful matter in this feast that animals were involved in the enjoyment of children, as children in different squares and streets were happy to play with horses and donkeys and touch them to have their feast days under all current circumstances in Syria full of happiness and joy.
