October 2, World Farm Animal Day and
Vegetarian Awareness Month

World Farm Animals Day takes place on October 2nd, which honors the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, an advocate of non-violence towards animals.

World Farm Animals Day (WFAD), founded in 1983, is dedicated to exposing and memorializing the needless suffering and death of cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, and other innocent, sentient animals raised and slaughtered for food. World Farm Animals Day will continue until animals are no longer seen as commodities are raised for their flesh and by-products.


Note from Author.  Education materials are designed to be "Family Friendly;" therefore, I chose not to portray the slaughter of animals.
