World Animal Day

On the occasion of World Animal Day (WAD), October 4 each year, special programmes are held all over the world. While the reason behind WAD is to remind everyone to be kind to animals, we must be kind all the time. The Blue Cross of India has been observing WAD since 2009, among other things, special blessings at various houses of worship for the animals we are obliged to care for. This year, we had special prayers at two Ganesha temples; one mosque and one Catholic Church.
