With April came the ASPCA’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month, and hopes of ending cruelty altogether. Although their mission remains the same throughout the year, this official month shines a bright light on the problem. By increasing awareness in this manner, they hope to bring more people onboard in preventing cruelty to animals. Here are a few ways to get involved in this important mission.
Share the Message with Your Social Circle
At the ground level, awareness starts with one-on-one talks between friends, family, and neighbors. As word spreads about the mission to prevent cruelty to animals, more people can get involved. Spreading the message by word of mouth goes a lot further than widespread campaigns can. So, talk to anyone and everyone you can about the ASPCA’s mission in the month of April and throughout the rest of the year.
Consider Starting a Fundraising Campaign
You can start fundraising campaigns to help ASPCA gain the funds for all their cruelty prevention efforts. You can also start fundraising for other charities that have a similar mission and results. You can share your fundraising efforts online or through word of mouth to raise money. Even small amounts help to further the mission to prevent cruelty to animals across the world.
Reach Out to Those in Need of Pet Care Solutions
When resources run low, inadvertent cruelty can occur. Pets may have to go without food or other basic care when the funds are not available to the owner. You can help prevent cruelty by looking across your community for pets in need. By assisting their owners with pet care when times are tough, you help those animals remain in humane conditions.
