April is Animal Cruelty Awareness Month


Have you been seeing a lot of orange ribbons lately? That’s because April is animal cruelty awareness month and an orange ribbon is the symbol. 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.

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.
