The primary goal of this day is to develop a compassionate culture to make our world a fairer place for all living creatures -- where animals are recognized as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare. Celebrated in a variety of different ways in many countries, with no regard to nationality, religion, faith, or political ideology, World Animal Day sometimes includes a Blessing of the Animals."
