World Animal Day Urges us to ‘Doodle It’ For Harry and Friends

The UK-based animal welfare movement, World Animal Day, is calling upon animal lovers to get in touch with Google, to request a high-profile home page Google Doodle that will raise the status of animal welfare issues worldwide.

World Animal Day takes place on October 4 every year and is organised by the Cheltenham based Naturewatch Foundation. It would love to see a World Animal Day Google Doodle adding to more than 4000 others that the Google design team has already created.

Google Doodles celebrate famous people from all walks of life, special dates in the calendar - like World Animal Day - and events big and small and the search engine is open to suggestions from the public as to what would merit it replacing its own home page Google logo with a special doodle.

World Animal Day is now seeking to rally as much support as possible, from animal lovers across the UK and locations worldwide. It wants to convince the Internet giant that its October 4 doodle could do nothing better than support the cause of animals.

The process is quick and easy, as World Animal Day has set up a page at requiring just a name and email address and then a press of the submit button.

Supporters can spread the word on their own social media, using the hashtag #WorldAnimalDayDeservesAGoogleDoodle. To gain more visibility on social media itself, World Animal Day has created a series of visuals in which a number of animals, including Harry the cat, speak up and say, “I deserve a Google Doodle”.

World Animal Day helps raise the profile of animal welfare, to mobilise support and channel it into direct actions that raise the status of all types of animal and improve animal welfare standards. Celebrity supporters include Ricky Gervais, Simon Cowell and Jean-Claude Van Damme, all of whom the initiative hope may also request the desired Google Doodle.

By achieving its mission, World Animal Day believes it can focus more attention, across the globe, on issues relating to the treatment and care of companion, wild, marine, farm and working animals, as well as animals in the entertainment world.

Caroline Ruane, Campaign Coordinator, says: “We are calling upon all animal lovers to do one simple thing, quickly fill in our pre-prepared form and send it off to Google. If we can get enough people to do that, we may just achieve our dream of having World Animal Day placed in the consciousness of all Google users on that day. This would raise the day’s profile further but, more importantly, potentially change the lives of many more animals.”

In the meantime, animal lovers can create events in support of World Animal Day, to either raise funds for animal welfare, or change attitudes towards animals for the better. More information can be found at A quick link for the Google Doodle submission form can be found at

To achieve this, we encourage animal welfare organisations, community groups, youth and children’s clubs, businesses and individuals to organise events in celebration of World Animal Day. Involvement is growing at an astonishing rate and it's now widely accepted and celebrated in a variety of different ways in many countries, with no regard to nationality, religion, faith or political ideology.

Events are organised under the World Animal Day Umbrella by being publicised on this website and advertised using the World Animal Day brand and logo. Global branding effectively ties all events together and, over the years we have found this approach to be particularly helpful to grassroots groups who struggle to attract media attention in order to raise awareness of their work and fundraise. This draws attention to animal issues and makes them front-page news – a vital catalyst for change. Each year the logo becomes more widely recognised as a global brand for animals. A brand that unites the animal welfare movement - firmly establishing itself as a platform for raising the status of animals.

Participation in World Animal Day will continue to grow until it reaches and connects animal advocates in all corners of the world. It's something that everyone can join in with, whether they are part of an organisation, group, or an individual. We regularly receive wonderfully inspiring messages about World Animal Day from animal advocates around the world. For example: “Thank you once again for your inspiration and support towards this auspicious World Animal Day that continues to make a huge difference for animals in Africa and the world at large.” Josphat Ngonyo, Executive Director, Africa Network for Animal Welfare, and "What World Animal Day is doing for animals is truly influencing all of us in amazing ways."
