At World Animal Net we are proud supporters of World Animal Day, a holiday that recognizes animals of all kinds and challenges us to do our best to improve their lives. This year, WAN volunteers, staff and board have gotten in the spirit and joined the “Global Wave,” a social media campaign by World Animal Day organizers asking participants to take a selfie and share on social media in order to spread the word about World Animal Day.
We would like to also take this opportunity to thank all those who support our work, particularly our volunteers, and to encourage others to join the World Animal Day celebration.

Donna has helped WAN in our efforts to disseminate the Model Animal Welfare Act, the blueprint for a comprehensive animal welfare law which can be translated and adapted to local situations. Even Donna’s kids and furry kids have joined in the World Animal Day celebration!
Leah is our graphic design volunteer and designed our poster we presented on the Model Animal Welfare Act at last year’s Global Animal Welfare Conference, hosted by the World Organisation for Animal Health, as well as a number of other projects.
Amy is our copy editing volunteer, and proofreads many of the resources we develop, including the Model Animal Welfare Act in preparation for publishing as a book. Amy’s cat, SIX, plays a key role in overseeing all copyediting operations.
