All these activities and events will shine the spotlight on the amazing animals and compassionate people who love them.
Precious lives which will be saved and communities will be transformed in this week with the variety of animal-related activities and events. Organizers released a statement saying, “We have seen a tremendous outpouring of compassion and history-making change for the animals in the U.S. Weeks campaign. We expect the UK Week to be an exceptionally dynamic celebration that will be filled with excitement as only the UK can bring to the international stage.
