World Veterinary Day 25 April | How animals contribute to our lives


How animals contribute to our lives

 

  • They inspire us

  • They help us work

  • They befriend us

  • They sustain us

  • They protect us

  • They heal our planet

 

Examples of how animals contribute to our lives:

 

  • Animals as workers: horses pulling or transporting, guide dogs, police dogs
  • Animals as companions: pets, especially now during lockdown to support mental health, trauma counseling
  • Animals as resources: food, meat, eggs, dairy, and clothing like wool
  • Animals as protectors: guard us, do search and rescue
  • Animals as ecological balancers: bees that pollinate, birds that control pests, etc.
  • Animals as symbols of creativity: in art and culture, film, and religion
