Be Kind to Animals

We all know that we should be kind to animals every day of the year. But in our busy lives, it’s important to have a grounding point where we (along with our family, friends and colleagues) can do something special to honour our animal friends.

Be Kind to Animals Week, from 1 - 7 October, aims to create a moment in time where we can pause, reflect and plan what we can do to help animals, and provide inspiration with simple ideas and delicious recipes.

Help us spread the message of kindness to all animals by making a Pledge.

Be Kind to Animals Week is a proud initiative of Edgar’s Mission, modelled with permission on the American Humane Association’s Be Kind to Animals Week®.
