World Animal Day 2011 @ East Coast Park

If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.
-Albert Einstein

Keep The Love. End The Neglect.

Event:  World Animal Day 2011

Venue: East Coast Park (Area D1 – Dalbergia Green)

Date: 25 September (Sunday)

Time: 10:30 am – 6 pm.

Join SPCA in the celebration of World Animals Day 2011! Bring along your friends (furry ones as well!) and picnic mats for a fun-filled day, which includes a dog agility competition, ‘Perfect Paws’ contest, riding on a Harley bike, pet care advice (with NLB resource booth) and many more. You can see more details on the day’s program here.

World Animal Day (WAD) started in 1931 and is celebrated on 4 October around the world by animal lovers.

Animal welfare groups such as:

– Animal Concern and Research and Education (ACRES)

– Animal Lovers League (ALL),

– Action For Singapore Dogs (ASD)

– Cat Welfare Society (CWS)

– Noah’s Ark CARES (NAC)

– House Rabbit Society of Singapore (HRSS)

are coming together to make a stand against animal neglect.

In a civilized society such as ours, it is disappointing to know that there is a 15% increase  in cruelty case received by SPCA (a total of 987 cases) from July 2010 to June 2011.

We couldn’t agree more with Arthur Schopenhauer who said that, “Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.”

A society with rising animal cruelty is a cause for worry.

Let’s spread the word of World Animal Day and compassion for these beings who cannot speak.
