Teach kids to be kind to all living creatures by example and with free lessons during the American Humane Be Kind to Animals Week of May 1-7, 2022.
April 25, 2022
Building a better world for both people and animals begins with teaching children the meaning of kindness. We can best do this by example and by providing them with free, compelling humane education materials.
And what better time to start than during American Humane’s 107th annual “Be Kind to Animals Week®”, which is the oldest commemorative week in U.S. history and takes place in 2022 from May 1-7.
American Humane is asking everyone to take an online pledge to do four simple things to improve the world for animals and is making a variety of free humane education materials available online to parents, teachers and children in both English and Spanish.
Free downloadable materials include lessons and teaching sheets for pre-K to Grade 5 students, “Be Kind to Animals” posters, and ideas to celebrate and protect Earth’s creatures.
These are all available at www.americanhumane.org/BeKind
To lead by example and make a difference in the lives of millions of animals, American Humane is asking animal lovers of all ages to pledge to make kindness a year-round lifestyle choice by doing these four simple things:
• Buying humanely raised foods with the American Humane Certified™ seal to support the good treatment of farm animals;
• Adopting from a shelter/rescue, and when choosing small, “nontraditional” animal companions (such as reptiles, small mammals, fish, and amphibians), finding them at an American Humane Certified™ pet provider;
• Choosing movies and television shows that have earned the “No Animals Were Harmed®” end credit verifying the protection of animal actors;
• Visiting American Humane Certified™ zoos, aquariums and conservation centers caring for the many endangered and disappearing species of the world.
In addition, teachers and children can find a retrospective featuring history, highlights and unusual facts from 107 years of “Be Kind to Animals Week,” as well as a sampling of famous supporters from U.S. Presidents to Clint Eastwood and John Wayne, Betty White, Doris Day and even Porky Pig.
American Humane is the country’s first national humane organization, founded in 1877. Today, this four-star nonprofit shelter feeds and protects nearly one billion animals worldwide each year. For more information, please visit www.americanhumane.org
