What is World Animal Day?
World Animal Day was founded in 1925 by Heinrich Zimmermann, who worked tirelessly to raise awareness of animal rights and the prevention of animal cruelty. Today, it is celebrated worldwide in attempts to promote the ethical treatment of animals and protection of endangered species.
To mark this occasion, several events and campaigns are launched around the globe with the mission to create a better and safer environment for animals. By taking part in this event, Wire Fence aims to pledge their support to raising animal welfare standards by helping an animal charity.
Why do we support animals?
- RSPCA reportedly receives over a million calls annually reporting cruelty to animals – that is a call every 30 seconds.
- According to DoSomething.org, over 115 million animals are killed in laboratory experiments and drug trials around the world. Even more are suffering from inhumane treatment and conditions.
- About 97% of tortured and slaughtered animals are farm animals. These animals are victims of mass-production companies, and bred for their milk, eggs, meat or fur. As reported by CIWF, these animals are drugged, mutilated and crammed into small places.
What we are doing to help
100% of the profits made by Wire Fence on the 5th September will be donated to a charity supporting the welfare of animals.

Thanks to our supporters, we raised £249 for Cuan Wildlife Rescue.
Cuan Wildlife Rescue was founded in 1989 by Megan Morris-Jones and her husband John. Cuan Wildlife Rescue, based in Shropshire, is a wildlife rescue where their trained staff and volunteers treat injured, sick, and orphaned wild animals and birds with the aim of returning them back into the wild once they are back to health. They admit and treat 5,700 creatures per year and need to raise £346,000 for day to day running costs. The number of wildlife that has been admitted since the recent pandemic of Covid 19 has increased by 20%, due to the general public spending more time outside walking in the countryside.
Comment from Cuan Wildlife Rescue
We are currently fundraising to build a much-needed new badger cub rehabilitation pen for their last stage of rehab with us before release. We have rehabilitated 18 cubs this year and we desperately need another pen as this is increasing year on year.
The generous donation from Wire Fence will help towards the cost of building this badger pen. – Deb Bolger (Community Fundraiser)
