Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month

Since April is the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month, we must focus on the tragic reality that animals are constantly being abused. No creature in the world deserves to be harmed in any way, especially our loving felines. However, there are countless ways you can help all our furry friends by preventing cruelty!Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month


Cruelty to Animals Explained

There are many forms of animal abuse, some being more serious than others, but all sharing a common factor of neglect. Animal cruelty is hurting an animal, or not caring for it responsibly. Some signs of animal abuse towards our feline friends may include starvation, lack of grooming, severe mange or scabies, or not providing an adequate shelter.


Pet Shelters: Volunteer & Adopt

There are many animal shelters in the Seattle-Kirkland area, so if you love to be around animals, consider helping by volunteering and keeping the animals happy and healthy! Also, avoid pet stores that may have harmful methods of obtaining animals and adopt from your local pet shelter instead.

However, some local pet stores work in partnership with RASKC (Regional Animal Shelter of King County), so inquire as to the adoptable cats’ origins.

Please check out these local organizations for more information regarding volunteering and adopting:


Educate Owners and Report Animal Abuse

One of the most impactful ways to help our loving animals is through education. Give new pet owners information on how to care for their new pet, including spay/neuter information and vaccination information. Feel free to give out our phone number (425-636-8201); at All About Cats, we are happy to answer questions over the phone – we enjoy being the go-to for all feline-related questions. Also, if you see signs of animal abuse, call 911 or contact the appropriate authorities in the Kirkland area.


Donate & Sign Petitions

You can donate to a variety of different organizations that will change the lives of animals everywhere by preventing animal cruelty. Some great organizations to donate to include the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) or the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Another great way to help animals facing abuse would be to sign petitions to strengthen laws against animal cruelty.
