7th National Animal Rights Day 2017
June 4, 2017Free
Observed annually in the U.S, Canada, Germany and Australia (2017) for the purpose of giving a voice to the trillions of animals who suffer or are killed by humans. We gather together to raise awareness for their plight and their right to live free from human harm. Our goal is to champion animal rights until ALL animals are free from enslavement and all forms of violence, and their rights are established and protected by law.

Established by the non-profit Our Planet. Theirs Too. in 2011, The National Animal Rights Day (NARD) is an annual day observed in multiple countries around the world on the first Sunday in June, for the purpose of giving a voice to all animals and raising awareness for their rights, until all animals are free from enslavement and their rights are established and protected by law.
On this day, special NARD events are held simultaneously in major cities around the globe. They start with a memorial ceremony for the billions of animals who die every year by human hands – often in the presence of real deceased animals, and continue with the reading and signing of The Declaration of Animal Rights. They end with a celebration of the animals in our lives, and the steps that are being made every year towards ending animals’ suffering and shifting the planet to a cruelty-free, plant-based, lifestyle.
