Be Kind to Animals Week

Be Kind to Animals Week

Throughout history, at every turn of human advancement animals have been
there trotting along right beside us, guiding us to a better world. For time
immemorial animals have captured our fascination. They have helped shape not
only lives but our hearts and minds. Now is the time to honour them!!

October 1st to 7th has been selected as "Be Kind to Animals Week". The
reason for this is that October takes in several most important days for
animals, the birth date of humanitarian and animal advocate Mohandas Gandhi
on the 2nd, and World Animal Day along with the Feast Day of St Francis of
Assisi, the patron saint of animals on the 4th.

There are so many ways we can help improve the lives of animals. It might be
as simple as taking the dog for a walk, or leaving water out for native
birds. Or perhaps you may choose to adopt an animal from a local shelter
rather than buying one from a pet store. People are animals too! Why not
check on an elderly neighbour or help someone mow their lawn. Participate
in conscientious consumerism, always buy cruelty free products and choose
cruelty free fare! For more fun things to do or register you own Be Kind To
