Be Kind to Animals Week: May 4 to 10, 2008

Posted by siyerwin on Wednesday, May 07, 2008 at 8:30 PM

Here's another Mefindhome news that's lagging a little behind (okay not a little) but taking the cue from Gail, the Pinoy Dog Lover, I'm letting you guys know, just in case you didn't, that this week is the Be Kind to Animals Week which was started by the American Humane Association about 93 years ago (1915).

How can you make the most of this week (and perhaps the rest of the year and beyond)? The American Humane Association has the following suggestions:

  • Speak out for the animals - get active in our local animal welfare community! Sign up with PAWS or other animal welfare groups and learn how you can help improve the the state of animal welfare in the Philippines. If you have a blog like this one, write about the animals and let's link up!
  • Appreciate Wildlife - we are all interconnected. The survival of the wild animals, and their natural habitat, means the survival of human kind! Watch The 11th Hour and An Inconvenient Truth
  • Share Kindness - Teach other people about being kind to animals. Volunteer and help out PAWS in their Humane Education Program.
  • Make A Donation to Your Local Animal Shelter - you may do this right now by donating to help in the care of the shelter animals. Click HERE to donate cash or HERE to donate in kind.
  • Spay/Neuter your pets - be part of the solution in controlling animal population. Learn why spaying neutering is the solution! Click here.
  • Be a responsible pet guardian - treat your pets as part of your family and bring them to the veterinarian at least once a year!
Learn more about the Be Kind to Animals Week at the American Humane Association's website.

Thanks and see you at the shelter! :)

Please do not leave your email or contact numbers in the comments. Email me directly at sherwin @ mefindhome.org if you have concerns or questions. This blog is increasingly attracting breeders/pet sellers trying to advertise their business through the comments and I don't want that. The blog seems to also be becoming a bulletin board of sorts for people who wish to abandon their pets. Blogger.com allows no way to edit your comments so there I have no other option but to delete comments that I deem inappropriate in this regard. I apologize for the inconvenience. Again, if you have any questions/concerns, better to email me at sherwin @ mefindhome.org than to comment here. Thank you very much!
