Support our Google Doodle campaign


We're calling on animal lovers everywhere to email Google asking their talented team to create a Doodle for World Animal Day 2017!

Google Doodle is a temporary alteration to Google's home page, usually celebrating holidays, events, birthdays or people.

We think that thousands of people working together to improve the lives of animals on October 4 is something to celebrate!

World Animal Day isn't a charity - it's an opportunity for YOU to raise funds or awareness for any animal welfare issue that you feel strongly about, including:

  • Animal experiments
  • Wild animals
  • Animals in entertainment
  • Marine animals
  • Farm & working animals
  • Companion animals

Help persuade the Google Doodle team to create an amazing image for World Animal Day by sending an email to: [email protected] and copy in [email protected]

Every day, 205 Billion emails are sent around the world. The added exposure that a Google Doodle could provide for World Animal Day on October 4 would make such a huge difference and have a direct effect on helping to spread the message that World Animal Day stands for. 

Some Google Doodles are completed in a few hours, but others can take MONTHS to create, so please send your email TODAY!
