The goal on 4 October is to raise the voices of animals, with whom we share our common home on earth. The event seeks to increase public awareness of the importance of animal rights. Celebrating this day brings together numerous animal advocates, protectors, and activists from around the world, creating a united force that seeks to improve animal welfare and conditions.
World Animal Day wishes to unite the community under a common aim, the improvement of animal welfare, and encourage network collaboration to reach positive changes to the current state of animal welfare. Numerous existing organizations around the world are fighting for animal justice and as a result are making changes, advancing legislation, and raising awareness of society.
World Animal Day is celebrated differently in every country but attracts wide-spread participation, regardless of race, political or religious beliefs. By raising awareness around animal rights, we can create a world where each animal will be accepted as a living, intelligent being, and their welfare will be given great attention, which contributes to the well-being of both animals and humans.
The German office of PETA supports the “Georgian Society for the Protection and Safety of Animals” in the great struggle for animal rights in Georgia.
This year, protest-performance to mark “World Animal Day” is being held with the support of PETA Germany. It is one of the largest animal protection organizations in the world. PETA operates in 4 main areas where the existence of animals and the cruelty expressed towards them is long-term, namely:
laboratories, food, clothing, and entertainment industries.
PETA has been working for years to inform the public, conduct investigations to investigate and eliminate crimes against animals, organize and engage in various activities, organize protests aimed at the promotion of their rights.
It is very important for us to have the support of such a strong organization. Georgia is still on its way towards a compassionate and respectful treatment of non-human animals. There is still a long way to go, but we are determined and will fight together to strengthen animal rights in Georgia.
Stand up for Animal Rights!
P.S. Due to the pandemic situation in the country, the planned march will not be held, safety norms will be observed at the event.

On October 4, 2020, the “Georgian Society for the Protection and Safety of Animals” – GSPSA celebrated World Animal Day with animal rights activists – organized by Teimuraz Tsikoridze ambassador of “World Animal Day”.
The event was aimed at raising public awareness of all the living beings with whom we share a single home – the earth. They live not for us but with us and play an important role in the life cycle of nature.
This day is celebrated all over the world and unites a part of the society around one idea, as well as being a source of inspiration for many people – to change their worldview and refuse to exploit any form of an animal that has the same right to live freely, without suffering as we humans.
Humans can live in a way that does not harm other inhabitants of the planet. This day reminds the public that compassion can overcome oppression, make people less egocentric, and care about the planet and its other full-fledged members.
