World Animal Day – How Can You Help to Raise Money for Animal Welfare Across the World?

World Animal Day

It’s World Animal Day on October 4th, and this is a big date for your diary if you’re interested in animal welfare and are looking for an opportunity to do your bit for animals around the world.

Perhaps you’d like to raise awareness of an animal welfare issue that is close to you heart? Or maybe you want to help a small charity that is doing great work with animals?

Whatever your reasons for wanting to get involved, World Animal Day is ideal for doing something in support of animal welfare. Here are some of the things you could do to mark the day.

Donate to World Animal Day

World Animal Day is all about trying to achieve global change in welfare standards so that animals can have a better future. They’re passionate about encouraging as many people as possible to get involved and encourage social, legal and political reform through their mass participation.

You can donate to them via Paypal on the World Animal Day website if you’d like to support their efforts.

Sponsor an Animal

One of the easiest ways to support the welfare of a particular type of animal is to become a sponsor.

This one isn’t free of course but it does give you the chance to help wildlife organisations to protect more animals. If you have a specific cause in mind, World Animal Day could be the perfect time to dive in and become a sponsor. You’ll get regular updates on the animal that you’re sponsoring and news on how your money is helping to safeguard their future.

Organise a Fundraiser

Lack the funds to support animal welfare but still want to help a particular charity to do more to protect wildlife?

If you’ve got a bit of free time that you can put aside, organising a fundraising event could be the ideal way to do your bit for World Animal Day.

There are lots of things that you could potentially do, from a simple coffee morning or car boot sale to a high-octane skydive! For maximum effect, try to rope a few friends in to help to raise more funds.

Bonus points if you can work in a pet or animal angle for your event!

Get Hands On

Got a bit of free time that you could dedicate to nature on World Animal Day?

Volunteering your time at a local rescue shelter is an obvious way to do this but there are other options too.

Alternatively, you could get in touch with a local wildlife or conservation group and see if they could use an extra pair of hands for any projects they’re currently undertaking.
