be kind to animals week schools

October 1st to 7th

The Be Kind to Animals Week school event invites students to celebrate compassion and respect for all living beings and find ways to improve the lives of other animals.


Did you know? Studies show that children who are kind to animals are more likely to act kindly towards their peers.

Be Kind to Animals Week is an annual nationwide event where schools are invited to do one kind act for animals. This could be anything from building birdbaths around the school to raising funds for a local animal shelter to creating posters about important animal rights issues.
