International Animal Day 2017

On October 3: Free general examination and 50% discount for vaccination against worms for dogs and cats at the Society's clinic

On Wednesday, October 4, International Animal Day will be celebrated all over the world. As always, The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Israel invites the public to adopt a dog or a cat in its shelter in Tel Aviv. A day earlier, on October 3, the Society offers free general examination at the clinic and 50% discount for vaccination against Esophagus Worms/Park Worms (Spirocerca Lupi) for dogs and for treatment for worms for dogs and cats.

The goal of World Animal Day is recognition of the importance and beauty of the animal world, to show appreciation for the ways that animals enrich our lives and for the many roles that they fill in their unique way. This tradition started in Florence, Italy in 1931, when ecologists held a special conference warning of the encroaching danger of extinction for various species in the animal world at that time. Since then, this day has become a day for all animals and the people who love and respect them, and is celebrated in various ways throughout the world with no regard to nationality, religion, faith or political ideology.
