April National Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month

by LifeLearn in Pet Health on 19 April, 2013

Go orange to support the prevention of animal cruelty

Throughout the year, the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is on a mission to help all animals avoid cruel treatment. But each April, they promote a special, all-out awareness campaign wih National Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. That’s because the ASPCA was founded in April, way back in 1866.

This year, the ASPCA campaign is Go Orange for Animals, an effort designed to encourage individuals, businesses, municipalities, pet organizations and others to raise awareness about animal kindness and compassion through bright orange signs, clothing, banners, ribbons, parades and anything orange that gets attention. The ASPCA website notes, “Orange is a vibrant, energetic color that most people find inspiring.” (It also happens to be an ASPCA brand color.)

You can be part of a community that makes a difference to all animals.

The ASPCA invites you to join them and your fellow pet advocates in raising awareness in the following ways:

  • Learn to recognize animal cruelty.
  • Report animal cruelty.
  • Set a good example for others.
  • Fight for the passage of anti-cruelty laws.

Your veterinarian is an excellent resource to talk with if you become aware of an animal cruelty situation.

In addition, you’ll find more information on the ASPCA website: www.aspca.org/about-us/aspca-april/.
