May is: Be Kind To Animals Week

Be Kind To Animals Week is an annual week-long celebration held in the first full week of May and takes place from May 7 to 13 this year. The week is designed to acknowledge and appreciate the efforts made to ensure animal safety in the U.S. and around the world.
Since the week’s inception in 1915, the American Humane Association has hosted this week all over the U.S. and has encouraged other organizations and individuals to join them. It aims to spread awareness about the need to be kind to animals and to protect them and their habitats. So let’s be kind to every animal we come across — both this week and always.
