American Humane's "Be Kind To Animals Week" is May 7-13

Help us celebrate American Humane's "Be Kind to Animals Week" this May 7 thru 13th. This is the oldest commemorative week in U.S. history! Learn how to participate:


This year, Animal Humane (which is the country's first national humane organization, founded in 1877) is challenging people to take the "Kindness Pledge" which states:

"I believe in kindness and compassion for all animals, and that all animals are entitled to humane treatment. I will be kind to animals all year round by:

  • Buying humanely raised products - you can help better the lives of over 10 billion farm animals by seeking out humanely raised foods with the American Humane Certified™ seal
  • Protecting Earth's animals - help the many endangered and disappearing species of the world by visiting only Humane Certified™ zoos, aquariums, and conservation centers
  • Protecting animal actors - by looking for the the "No Animals Were Harmed®" end-credit
  • Adopting from an animal shelter - help the 6-8 million animals abandoned each year by adopting

The Kindness Pledge website even has downloadable resources for children preschool-aged to grade 5. 

Says Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane: 

The need for compassion has never been greater. I hope every American will join us in celebrating ‘Be Kind to Animals Week’ and making a difference for all the creatures of the Earth – not just during these several days, but all year round.
