Every Pet Deserves A Good Home…

Celebrate Be Kind to Animals Week

The Mission Viejo Animal Services Center and the American Humane Association will celebrate the 96th annual "Be Kind to Animals Week" May 2-8.

The event was started by the American Humane Association in 1915 to celebrate the human-animal bond and encourage kindness toward pets and wild animals who enrich our world. In 1952, Be Kind to Animals Week received the official endorsement of the U.S. government. It is now one of the oldest special week-long observances in the country.

This year’s theme is "So many animals, So many ways to be kind." In honor of Be Kind to Animals Week, the Mission Viejo Animal Services Center suggests the following ways to show appreciation for the animals around you:

– Commit to adopting your next pet from an Animal Shelter.

– Report any suspected animal abuse or neglect.

– Donate to your local Animal Shelter.

– Spay or neuter your pets and encourage friends and family members to do the same.

– Make sure your pet has a license and a microchip.

– Spend quality time with your pet.

Kindness to animals is one of the building blocks of a humane and compassionate society. The Animal Services Center encourages everyone to recognize the value of animals in our lives during this special week.
