World Farm Animals Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on October 2
World Farm Animals Day was created in memory of Mahatma Ghandi, a Hindu spiritual leader in the country of India. Among the many things Ghandi taught was non-violence and to treat all living beings with respect. This teaching is all inclusive. This means fair and humane treatment of farm animals, too. This event was created to draw attention to the poor treatment and plight of animals on some farms in many parts of the world.
To many of us, there is a certain happiness and joy when we see or think of farm animals. We don't usually think about the fact, that a farm animal is food, too. This day is designed to be an annual protest, against factory farms and slaughterhouses, especially those that treat the animals cruelly. This also extends to abandoned and abused animals anywhere in the world.
We encourage you to participate in this day, by showing your support for the fair treatment of all animals. It will also be enjoyable to visit a working farm today, to see farm animals in their normal environment. An added bonus, is to visit a farm where there's a petting zoo and you can feed them, too.
