Everyone wants to be treated with care and kindness. The same goes for animals. How can you be kind to animals? The first and foremost is-Do no harm them. But do not stop there. Here is a list of things you can do to help animals.
Do not support animal cruelty: Among the biggest threats to animals around the world are hunting and poaching for trading of animal parts. Leather bags and belts, certain perfumes, cosmetics, paint brushes and some artefacts contain animal skin, fat, tusk horn, hair, or gland. If there are no markets for these items, there will be no animal products. You can help by not purchasing such products.
Do not support animal entertainment: Caging animals and making them dance, paint, and do tricks to entertain humans often involve cruelty. Animals are removed from their natural habitat and their freedom of movement is curtailed. Don't you think supporting such entertainment also makes us guilty of cruelty?
Small acts of kindness: You can show your love for animals by feeding them. You can feed stray dogs, keep water for squirrels, and install feeders for birds. But ensure you continue this food and water supply.
Educate yourself: Learn about animals. Be aware of their needs. The more you know the better. Because you will be well-equipped to become an agent of change.
Be kind to Nature: When you protect Nature, it in turn protects all creatures on Earth. Making simple lifestyle changes will go a long way in building a better planet for all life. Conserve water and electricity, cycle more, consume less, plant a tree, and give up single-use plastic.
