Be Kind to Animals Week this May 1 to 7, 2011



Join the event that’s been celebrated every year since 1915 -- American Humane’s Be Kind to Animals Week

In this annual tradition, we commemorate the role animals play in our lives, promote ways to continue to treat them humanely, and encourage others, especially children, to do the same.


What you can do...




Speak out for animals - Get informed about policies and legislation that can impact the animals in your community and throughout the country. Also, register to receive Action Alerts from American Humane -- you’ll be able to speak out for animals with just the click of a mouse. Advocacy for animals can make a huge difference in their safety and well-being. Learn how.


Report animal abuse - Animal cruelty and abuse is not only tragic for animals, but also an indicator that other forms of abuse such as domestic violence could be happening. If you see something that looks suspicious -- a dog chained in your neighbor’s yard that looks underfed, a child putting a cat in a box and kicking it around the yard -- don’t hesitate. Let someone know.


Appreciate wildlife - All animals deserve to be treated humanely -- family pets and animals in the wild. Create an inviting space in your yard and garden for butterflies, hummingbirds and other creatures. If wildlife comes too close to home, look for ways to coexist with animals or to protect your property humanely.


Adopt a pet from a shelter or rescue - Every year, an estimated 3.7 million animals must be euthanized at our nation’s shelters because they could not be adopted into loving homes. Help animals find a second chance at happiness by adopting your next pet from your local shelter or rescue group. American Humane has tips to find the animal companion that’s right for you and develop a bond that will last a lifetime


Take care of your pet - Pets are like children who never grow up. They need you to help keep them healthy and safe throughout their lives. Keep your animal’s vaccinations up-to-date. Make sure he’s wearing proper identification. Take your pet to the veterinarian regularly. Know what it takes to be a responsible pet owner.

Why not have done with this and be kind to animals every week?

Why make it an "event" and not a lifestyle. Sounds more like people wanting a pat on the back to me.

S&F for your thread. You're very conciencious about those who cannot speak for themselves and they are like children really and deserve to be protected and taken care of. They are our babies.

Love and Respect to our fellow earthlings who love us unconditionally.
