The mission of World Animal Day is to raise the status of animals in order to improve welfare standards around the globe. Through increased awareness and education, we can create a world where animals are always recognised as sentient beings and full regard is always paid to their welfare.

On this special day, we would like to invite you to join in with the thousands of 'do it yourself' fundraisers across the globe that will be hosting an event or taking on a challenge to raise funds for an animal charity close to their heart.

Income from 'do it yourself fundraising' is a lifeline for us here at Jerry Green Dog Recuse, and we couldn’t be more grateful for all our DIY fundraisers, every penny and pound really does mean so much to us!

Let’s make this our biggest fundraising day of the year!! #doitforthedogs
