If you know a child or young person (ages 6 to 17) who is dedicated to being kind to dogs and animal welfare in general, nominate him or her for the “Be Kind to Animals Kind Kid Contest.”
American Humane, the national organization dedicated to protecting both children and animals, celebrate the Be Kind to Animals Week by giving the nation a chance to honor children or young adults who help animals by volunteering at a shelter, collecting blankets, toys, or food for homeless animals, or perform other kind work for animals.
Nominations must be submitted online or postmarked by April 15, 2008, and winners will be announced during Be Kind to Animals Week, which takes place May 4 to 10, 2008. Grand Prize winners from each age group (6–12 and 13–17) will receive $2,000 and all winners and runners-up will be featured in American Human press materials and on American Humane’s website.
“Be Kind to Animals Week provides an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments society has made with regard to the compassionate treatment of animals and to recognize the bond between people and animals,” says president and CEO of American Humane, Marie Belew Wheatley.
