Whether you choose to raise awareness via social media, sign an online petition, help an animal rescue group, or report neglect or abuse in your own town, you can be a voice for animals this month!
4 Ways You Can Be A Voice For Animals
Use your virtual voice
These days being a voice for animals can be as easy as the click of your computer mouse. One of the key factors in getting critical animal protection legislation passed is for lawmakers to hear from their constituents. Check out the website for an animal welfare group whose aims you support, and you will usually find easy-to-use petitions and letters to lawmakers – all you have to do is sign!
Share positive, educational posts that support your local animal rescue or promote animal protection in your social media this month.
Help a local shelter
Even if your local animal shelter isn’t actively involved in animal cruelty legislation, they have helped many victims of animal neglect and cruelty in their time. Volunteer, organize a fundraiser, or donate to help them continue their good work!
If you see animal cruelty or neglect in your neighborhood, report it to the appropriate local agency. Not sure what constitutes cruelty or who to report it to? Check with your local animal shelter, police department, or animal control agency.
