stop animal cruelty

posted by Stacy on Jan 21

A large part of activism is educating others, especially our children who will go on to inherit this world.

Most children have no idea how their daily habits affect animals or how easy it is to change. Kids typically want to be kind to animals but need someone to show them how!

In order to educate your children and others, educate yourself first! Peter Singer’s Animal Liberation is a thorough and easy-to-understand primer on animal rights. You can order it from PETA or you can try a local bookstore or library.

The following books, are also available from PETA:

  • 50 Awesome Ways Kids Can Help Animals by PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk—full of fascinating facts and more than 100 fun and easy projects and ideas that show children how they can get active for animals
  • Diet for a New America by John Robbins—a moving and well-documented book that describes the inhumane and unhealthy conditions under which animals are raised for food and shows how our health and ecological well-being are linked to the adoption of a vegan diet

What you and your children can do to help stop animal cruelty

Once you are familiar with the issues, share the knowledge! Create fliers, write letters, hold demonstrations, organize an information table at a concert or outdoors event, and encourage others to join you in your efforts to speak out for those who have no voice. Check out PETA.org regularly for updates, factsheets, and answers to “Frequently Asked Questions.”

Together, we can make this world a better place for all living beings….

    The Animal Planet channel is the #1 TV station in our home with 4 children. My girls want to work for the ASPCA when they get older. Also 1 does volunteer at the local vet. Its so important to educate our children.

    I agree that education is the key. Many older people seem very stuck in their ways, whereas children are far more open minded.

    Although my main aim is to start an animal sanctuary I hope to have an education centre and visit local schools to do talks. I think that is a great way to get through to kids.
