Global Working Animal Day

'Walk a mile in my shoes' Challenge

August 26th




Join Animal Aid Abroad on Sunday 26 August  when we raise awareness of Global Working Animal Day and, in doing so, raise funds for the MILLIONS of working animals around the globe who perform the tasks of tractors, trucks and taxis every day in the world's poorest countries.

Help us to help these animals,

by joining our

2018 'Walk a Mile in my Shoes' Challenge.

Our target this year is to raise $100,000

With these funds we will continue to

Give free medical treatment and care to thousands of sick, and injured working animals,

Provide essential equipment to reduce suffering in their working day,

Refuge for working animals to 'retire' and live the remainder of their lives pain-free  

Educate local communities to improve the treatment and welfare of their animals.

We must not refuse with our eyes
What they they endure with their bodies
Animals cannot ask for the pain to stop
They need us to be their voice
