    International Dog Day is observed every year on August 26 to raise awareness about mistreated and displaced dogs worldwide. The day was created by Colleen Paige, an animal behaviorist and advocate for animal well-being. Many animals in need find refuge and new opportunities for a better life in rescue homes, shelters, and nonprofit organizations.

    A recent study conducted by All Creatures Great and Small (ACGS) and the Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organizations (FIAPO) found that over half a million animals have been mistreated by humans in the past decade. People For Animals (PFA) is a non-governmental and non-profit association based in Hyderabad that protects and provides a better life for all animals.

They provide necessary medical care and attention during the animals’ recovery.
