World Animal Day is an international day of action for animal rights and welfare celebrated annually on October 4, the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals.

It started in 1931 at a convention of ecologists in Florence, Italy who wished to highlight the plight of endangered species.[1][2]
