Animal Rights Awareness Week, June 13-19

In Defense of Animals created Animal Rights Awareness Week (ARAW) in 1991 to honor the animals who have been exploited and killed by humans around the world, and to create an opportunity to direct the public’s attention to the needs and wants of animals, with the idea that animals’ rights must be acknowledged and pushed to the forefront of our global consciousness.

There are several ways to participate in the week. Join the campaign by spreading awareness concerning the humane treatment of animals.

  • Know where your products come from and determine whether they are obtained humanely.
  • Support local and worldwide conservation and preservation efforts.
  • Support spaying and neutering programs in your area, including those for feral cats.
  • Volunteer at local shelters.
  • Buy cruelty-free products.
  • Adopt shelter pets instead of buying. Many pet stores sponsor adoption days for shelters.
  • If you buy, research the breeder. Ask for references and a tour of their facility. A reputable breeder will not decline these requests.

Use #AnimalRightsAwarenessWeek to share on social media.
