#WorldAnimalDay

Posted by Stephan Moskovic | October 4th, 2015

World Animal Day
Amidst the last leg of Paris Fashion Week, a little pause from the frenzy could do us all much good, and October 4th happens to be World Animal Day – a day aimed at raising global awareness to progressing the welfare of animals. If you’ve noticed your ordinarily runway-centric Instagram feed littered with scores of pets and not models beautifying backstage, it’s no mistake. In hopes of momentarily shifting the collective focus, Models.com and My Dream for Animals, founded by model agent George Speros at the Society Management, asked industry influencers to give voice to causes they cared about by posting a statement with a picture of their critter companions. See which animal lovers participated in #theinfluencerscampaign to help make an impact.

Our boy Blake on #worldanimalday..we would like to see the absolute ban of the Yulin dog festival and tough regulation introduced throughout China and other parts of Asia to stop the mistreatment of dogs and cats used as livestock. Cruelty to a creature that cannot defend itself is one of the ultimate evils

This is me and my son Roger Munro on #worldanimalday .. The finest mammal I know … We want to bring to attention the terrible abuse in China of dogs particularly .. But of all animals … The Chinese nation are a wonderful, inspirational and advanced people but animal rights in their country are sadly medieval .. Let’s change that now

my son Jack and dog Lola on #worldanimalday…i’d like to highlight all the animal rehabilitation centers. Both Jack and my other son Ripley help out at the local animal rehabilitation center and muck the horse stalls and bottle feed baby raccoons. i think this experience is so invaluable for my children to learn about life and how broken things can be fixed with time and patience

Me and my lovely boys Franklin and Winston on #worldanimalday would love to bring attention to the Animal Care Centers of NYC https://www.nycacc.org/Adopt.htm where these guys were adopted from at 7 months old. They are brothers so it was great to be able to keep these guys together. Supporting centres like these we can make a change closer to home and be rewarded in our everyday with the love and joy animal children bring us
