World Animal Day falls every October 4 of the year; it is a day dedicated to cherish different kind of animals and remind humankinds to protect animals’ rights including against abuse and abandonment. The commemoration started back in 1931 at an ecology convention in Florence. The date itself was decided according to Francis of Assisi’s birthday; a Catholic saint known as the nature lover and the patron of animals and environment.
SPCA (Society For Prevention of Cruelty To Animals) Selangor is an NGO founded back in 1958. Their main aim is to protect defenseless animals and provide them with decent shelters. The SPCA Animal Shelter & Adoption Centre at Ampang Jaya temporarily houses 300-350 unwanted animals at any one time while seeking new homes for them. The World Animal Day celebration is their attempt to create awareness among Malaysians to work hand in hand in protecting the welfare of animals.
