World Animal Day - Art Competition

To celebrate World Animal Day, Animal Aid Abroad are putting the focus on our young people and their role in understanding and appreciating our animal planet.

We want to celebrate our relationship with the animals that share our lives and the ways in which they enrich us.

For AAA it is also an important opportunity to speak out and make people aware of the millions of animals that work around the globe. From the streets of India, to the brick kilns in Nepal, to the mines in Tanzania, to the deserts of Pakistan and everywhere in-between, working animals are a big part of peoples livelihoods.

On this special day we aim to help raise the status of working animals and to improve their welfare standards around the world.

We put the call out to our junior support base and we were not disappointed. We received a number of excellent art pieces and found our job to choose 3 winners very difficult. All entries were from Primary School students so we revised our categories to Yr 1-2, Yr 3-4 and Yr 5-6.

We are very pleased to announce our 2017 junior winners of our WAD art competition:

Yr 1-2 - Amelia with her picture of a customs sniffer dog at Perth airport

Yr 3-4 - Stella with her picture of Simpson's donkey that worked in the Galipoli campaign to transport sick and injured men to safety.

Yr 5-6 - Nevada with her drawing of a draught horse pulling a cart on a farm

Every day animals around the world are being overworked and abused, forced to carry heavy loads or to work for tourism purposes with little or no rest, food or water. Animal Aid Abroad works alongside partner groups to educate communities, provide shelter for animals and much needed food, water and care.

  • NOWZAD Donkey Update Report - 2017

    Samson Samson is one of the first donkeys who came to Nowzad.  One of our neighbours owned him and would use him to carry heavy loads.   We advised him not to use this donkey for work because he just did not have the strength and energy.  Nowzad rescued Samson from the neighbour to relieve him of his heavy workload.  He is an old donkey and lives a peaceful life at the Nowzad Donkey Shelter now.  He wasn’t so friendly at first but has relaxed in his old age and enjoys the company of people and will even let us hug h...
