Have you been seeing a lot of orange ribbons lately? That’s because an orange ribbon is the symbol for Animal Cruelty Prevention Month. The orange ribbon is called the “animal guardian ribbon” and serves as a reminder that animals need caring people to protect them, not just in April, but all year round.
How can you make a difference in preventing animal cruelty? Here are a few ideas on how to get started.
Visit the ASPCA’s Advocacy Center to see a list of state and federal animal action alerts that you can help support right now.
Support your local animal shelter. Donate your time, money, or useful items like pet food and kitty litter to your local shelter.
Search PETA’s database of cruelty-free companies that don’t test their products on animals before you go shopping for health and beauty products.
Show your support for Animal Cruelty Prevention Month by adding the orange ribbon to your website or social media page.
Join a local feral cat group to help the stray and feral cats in your community. These groups need lots of volunteers to help with their trap-neuter-return (TNR) programs.
Learn about humane ways to solve problems with wildlife in and around your home.
We donate 25% of every purchase to no kill animal shelters!
