We’re supporting this fantastic petition from Bailey aged 10, from Copley Junior School to have a yearly animal fundraising day in UK schools.
“I’m Bailey, I’m 10 years old and in year 5. I love animals and think that all of us should do a little more to help them. All schools have the same yearly fundraising days that are all related to humans. Children in need, poppy day, comic relief. Why is there no nationwide yearly school fundraising day for animals? Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could support animals too?
The human population is thriving and because of this, things get worse and worse for animals. They need our help”.

We strongly believe that education is the key to change. The relationship between children and animals is always a special one. Educating and empowering them to be the force for creating a better future for our four-legged friends is a vital aspect of the work we do.
A yearly fundraising day for animals in UK schools will help hundreds of charities to save and improve the lives of animals of all shapes and sizes. And the children will be sure to have fun too!
