Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of International Working Animal Day.

Animal charity SPANA (Society For The Protection Of Animals Abroad) created ‘International Working Animal Day’ in 2016. It is observed every year on June 15th.


The annual campaign raises awareness about the crucial role played by working animals in developing countries around the world.

Working animals – such as horses, donkeys, camels and elephants – play a vital role in the world’s poorest communities, ploughing fields and delivering food and water. More than 200 million working animals support the livelihoods of at least 600 million people worldwide.

SPANA improves the lives of working animals in low-income countries around the world through providing free veterinary treatments, training local communities and teaching children the importance of kindness and compassion towards all animals through their school education programmes.

The charity believes a life of work should not mean a life of pain or suffering for any animal. These hardworking animals deserve greater respect and recognition. And, more importantly, they need our help.
