What Each of Us Can Do to Prevent Cruelty to Animals

April 1 2014

Animal Cruelty Month

April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. Bark Busters is extremely passionate about rescuing dogs who have been abandoned or have behavioral problems that some dog owners can't overcome on their own. Animal abuse can happen to virtually any pets; cats, dogs, horses and livestock just to name a few. It can happen everywhere -- circuses, puppy mills, rodeos, races (if greyhounds or horses aren't fast enough), and laboratories.Here are 5 tips each of us can do to help raise awareness for this worthy cause.

  1. Adopt. If you are looking for a new pet or know someone who is, please adopt from a rescue or shelter and help to save a dog's life.
  2. Volunteer or donate. Not in a position to adopt a pet? Maybe you can volunteer your time at a local animal shelter or even donate food, blankets, new pet toys or pet beds. You could save dozens of animal's lives by donating to your local shelter and/or wild life sanctuary. Make sure that you only support clean, reputable shelters.
  3. Spread the word. Post a fun picture of you and your dog spruced up in orange (chosen since it is vibrant, energetic and inspiring) on your Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest page. Encourage your friends to spread the word about the month-long "Go Orange for Animals" campaign.Last year even Niagara Falls went orange.
  4. Report abuse. Download this free app designed by ALDG Crime Tips to "report abuse and neglect" of animals in your community right from your phone. Submit audio, video, picture, and GPS information of any incident straight to the nearest law enforcement authorities. Never try and stop by the abuser yourself. When in doubt, call 9-1-1.
  5. Make toys. Not a craftsy person? Toys are simple to make. Make little balls filled with catnip or cotton so the cats have something to bat.

Don't be shy about speaking out against animal abuse! Each of us individually and collectively can make a difference.
