IDA started Animal Guardian Volunteer Day to honor and recognize the strong emotional bonds shared by humans and companion animals. We also wanted to give people an opportunity to share their "guardian pride" by celebrating the spirit of this important relationship with other animal lovers. Last year's Animal Guardian Volunteer Day events in New York City and St. Louis drew crowds of people and companion animals as well as official recognition from elected representatives. This year, we are encouraging everyone who cares about animals to volunteer for an animal-related cause on Saturday, June 11 as a way of giving back to the animals who give so much unconditional love to us each day.
