4 October is the World Animal Day, a day to promote awareness among citizens and institutions on the need to consider all animals as sentient beings with a right to welfare.

To support the day the Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale delle Venezie asked his staff to take selfies and share them on the social media using the hashtag #WorldAnimalDay.

Below we publish some of the photos collected. For further information on the World Animal Day the cause of animal welfare, you can visit the website of the campaign:
