Be Kind to Animals Week!

This post was filed under Pet Holidays.

May 4 to 10, 2008 is Be Kind to Animals Week, which was created by the American Humane Association in 1915.

So how can you celebrate Be Kind to Animals Week?

Aside from simple things like being responsible pet owners, another way to celebrate the Be Kind to Animals Week is to adopt a dog from the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) shelter, or help out with the cause by the donating some stuff they would need to keep the shelter running.

Marc and I pledged to ourselves that we will donate as a gift to our late Sheero, who would have turned six years old last 25th of April. The stuff we plan to donate are somewhere within the gazillion boxes still left unpacked (the renovation of our house isn’t finished yet, unfortunately). Hopefully, we get to donate before Be Kind to Animals Week ends!

You can contact PAWS through philpaws(at)yahoo(dot)com or give them a call at (+63 2) 475-16-88.

Oh, and by the way… Congratulations to the Philippine Canine Club Inc. for celebrating their 45th anniversary last week. Thanks so much for the kind invitation, which I unfortunately received too late (my fault… I wasn’t able to check my email immediately). It would have been fun to meet fellow dog-lovers in one place!
