Global Cat Day, on October 16, 2022, is a day to focus and dig deep in the fight to end cruelty worldwide, a fight that truly needs to happen every day of the year. Because while love for cats knows no borders, cruel and harmful acts against them are still far too common.

Alley Cat Allies launched Global Cat Day six years ago to shine a spotlight on the life-threatening dangers against cats in many different corners of the world.
