You may not be aware of this but 17th – 23rd June is Animal Rights Awareness Week.
Whilst we know you all love your pets unconditionally; this week opens us up to understanding more about animal abuse and what measures we can put in place to stop animal cruelty. Every animal, from the big to the very small, help us in our everyday life, yet it is often discovered that we don’t provide them with the love and respect they all deserve.
Here are some of our top tips for helping animals this Animal Rights Awareness Week.
Switching to cruelty-free products helps to prevent animal testing. Look out for products marked Vegan or Cruelty-free. You might even be shocked to find out how many brands actually do test on animals. Click here to find a selection of cruelty free companies and products.
Changing to organic and free-range
It is worth understanding how animals are treated in some farming situations. Conventionally farmed animals tend to be treated terribly. They often don’t get to wander outside and are kept in very tight spaces. Some of them are even injected with harsh chemicals and hormones. Opting for organic and free-range meat and dairy products mean the animals get to play outside, move around inside their home and are completely free from hormones and chemicals, so in the long run are healthier for us too. Even better, you could also choose to go plant based and avoid meat altogether this Awareness Week.
There are so many people all around the world who work tirelessly everyday to protect animals. Lend a hand and volunteer your time supporting the charities close to you. You can search for your local charity here.
Help an animal in need and adopt your next dog or cat. They will love you even more for it. By adopting an animal rather than buying from a pet farm, you’re saving a life and helping stop these harmful breeding farms. You’ll feel so much better for it too knowing you’ve helped make your dog or cat live a happy life again. Start your search for a new pet today.
So many people are unaware of how important it is to spay and neuter their dogs and cats. There are thousands of puppies and kittens born everyday with no where to live. By spreading the word to your friends and family, you could help reduce the number of homeless animals in your area.
