Be Kind to Animals

Well, I guess that while everyone here at vetshoponline.com and all our customers would agree that every week should be "Be Kind to Animals Week" we whole heartedly support the "Be Kind to Animals Week" campaign by the Humane Society to promote kindness to animals.

Since 1915 the Humane Society has been promoting "Be Kind to Animals Week" to 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. This year, the initiative will run from May 3-9.

As a father of 3 (all of which, particularly our eldest, absolutely love animals), I particularly like the ideas for educators, which is available for download from the Society's website. It suggests a whole lot of age appropriate ways kids can get in to the idea of being kind to animals.

The Humane Society also has a  "Kind Kid Award," which recognizes children who have taken action to show compassion or compassionate treatment of animals that in some way recognizes the bond we have with animals. Nominations are open right now and the two grand-prize winners will receive $1,000 each. Nominated children must be between the ages of six and 17, and anyone nominating a child must be over the age of 18.

To read about last year's winners and to see the lots of simple ways our kids are working to make the lives of dogs, cats and other pets better visit the Humane Society's website.
