Dr. Albarracin was the one who propelled the National Law of the Protection of Animals (No. 2786) which establishes, for the first time in the history of argentina, the obligation to provide protection to the animals, preventing their abuse and their hunting.
On April 29, 1926, Albarracín died of a cardiac arrest, at age 75. In his tribute, the Day the Animal began to be held with the current date. In the rest of the world is celebrated on the 4 of October.
On this date we remember the importance of other animal species with whom we share the planet and are frequently the victims of acts of cruelty on the part of the human, as for example the traffic of animals moving figures in the millions worldwide.
78% of argentines have pets, and is the country with the highest amount per capita in Latin America.
