"Prevent Cruelty to Animals" Month

April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month! Here is your chance to join others in taking a stand for animals! Whether you donate your time or money, care or supplies, adopt, or just show care and kindness, please do something for animals this month. Help end cruelty and promote love.

Many domestic animals are homeless, neglected or abused. They need someone to care; let it be you. If you adopt, consider a rescue. Please be kind to strays.

Often shelters have wish lists. Check your area organizations to see if they need donations of supplies. Perhaps you have something they need.

Also, please remember to care about the wild animals around us. Please be conscious of their hardships in the world today. They did not choose to live as they are forced to. They are helpless, too. Also: "Slow down, when driving"!

Be part of the solution, not the problem. Save a life. Everyone benefits.

    1. I believe they find you, more often than the other way around. They bless us.

  6. All my pets have been unwanted animals and I have sheltered them with lots of love and they have given me back more that I've given them I think. I agree on Supporting animal shelters with supplies and pet food or money.

  7. Thank you for reminding me. I believe that the way a person treats an animal is an indication of how they will treat a human. It's so sad that those without a voice are subjected to the inhumane things that they suffer. I've always had shelter cats and will continue to do so when it's time again for another animal in our lives.

    1. I agree with you wholeheartedly. It is obvious to me if someone is kind by their treatment of animals. I respect animals for their honesty, and intuition regarding others.

    1. I agree, Beth Ann. People get caught up in things and forget the things that matter.
