World Animal Day - Animal Health Camp & Rabies Vaccination
SPCA Nepal organized an Animal Health Camp in Kathmandu on the 4th of October to mark The World Animal day. The health camp was organized with an aim to medicate ill and wounded animals in and around Pashupatinath area of the valley. In the event, the animals were also vaccinated against rabies and were given mange shots. A total of 63 dogs where treated and vaccinated by the SPCA volunteers.

   

World Animal Day is celebrated each year on 4 October. 4 October was originally chosen for World Animal Day because it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, a nature lover and patron saint of animals and the environment. Numerous churches throughout the world observe the Sunday closest to 4 October with a Blessing for the Animals.

   

However, World Animal Day has now gone beyond being the celebration of a Christian saint and is today observed by animal-lovers of all beliefs, nationalities and backgrounds. Animal blessings are held in churches, synagogues, and by independent Animal Chaplains in parks and fields. Animal rescue shelters hold fundraising events and open days, wildlife groups organize information displays, schools undertake animal-related project work and individuals and groups of friends or co-workers donate to animal charities or pledge to sponsor a shelter animal.
