This year will mark the 100th anniversary of Be Kind To Animals Week, and American Humane is commemorating the occasion with a year-long Kindness 100 campaign, taking their humane messages to millions of Americans, enlisting them in a new Compassion Movement to address the remaining challenges facing the world’s creatures. Be kind - and show your compassion for animals - by taking the Kindness Pledge to build a better world for animals all year long

Our pets deserve great care. They make us laugh, teach us how to care for others, snuggle up close, help us relax, and provide comfort when we need it most. Some sing beautiful songs and others fill us with wonder. This week, to show our appreciation for everything our pets provide, the AVMA encourages us to thank our pets with a trip to the vet.
Whether your pet has a temporary disability while recovering from illness or accident, or is a life-long specially-abled pet, May 3rd is the day set aside to celebrate these amazing and heroic animals. Disabled and specially-abled pets remind us that the love we share with our pets isn’t limited by physical ability.
