Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month

April is the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. The ASPCA urges everyone across the country to support their efforts and “Go Orange” for Animals, in honor of the signing of the ASPCA’s charter in 1866. This year, they celebrated 145 years of fighting animal cruelty!

Here’s a list of ways you can help support their efforts –

  • 2011 “I Saved my Pet!” Photo Contest
  • Orange Gear
  • Ways to Go Orange
  • 10 Ways to Celebrate Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month
  • Tips for Teaching Children to be Kind to Animals
  • Absolutely do NOT support Puppy Mills. It makes me so sad that humans stoop to this level. If you’re looking for a new pet, please speak with your local animal shelter. There is NO reason you need to purchase a dog from a Puppy Mill.

Lastly, animal cruelty is a crime. If you EVER see or suspect an animal begin abused, it’s important for you to know how to take action and who to contact. Homeward Pet Adoption has some great information regarding animal abuse.

Please Note: This is contact information specifically for the Washington State area.
