It is essential for all of us to be kind to animals every day of our lives.Â Since 1915, American Humane has been actively celebrating the â€œBe Kind to Animals Weekâ€ every year.Â This week we honor, focus on animals and encourage ways of treating animals kindly.
Here are some ways on how we can be kind to animals in our own little way by providing the care they require and deserve every day:
Take a Stand and Speak Your Mind for Animals
Become informed about the different policies and laws that govern animals and the impact it creates to our community, country and the whole world.Â RegisterÂ to start receiving Action Alerts from the American Humane Society so that youâ€™ll be informed on current changes and concerns.
Report and Give Details of Animal Abuse
Animal cruelty and abuse are heartbreaking.Â If you have seen an abusive act or cruelty being done to animals – report the said abuse immediately
Recognize the Value of Wildlife
Be aware of wildlife.Â It could be as easy as cutting the soda can plastic that binds a six-pack.Â Or, you can promote this by creating a private sanctuary in your own garden so that hummingbirds, butterflies and other living creatures feel welcome at your own home.Â You may find wildlife to be closer to your own space â€“ if you just open your eyes.
Adopt an Animal Pet from Rescue or Shelter Groups
There is an estimate of 3.7 million animals that are being euthanized every year because they have no place to live.Â You may help animals by giving them another chance to look brightly in their life by adopting them.
Give the Highest Level of Care to your Animal Pet
Remember to keep vaccinations of your animal pets up to date. Be sure they wear proper identification and are taken for regular check ups with their veterinarian.Â Responsibility begins at home with your own pets first.
