Go Orange for Animals

April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month! By wearing orange in April, you take a stand against animal cruelty

This month, show you stand with us by wearing orange, and help us stop puppy mills, dog fighting and other abuses, yes even neglect from shelter, chained animals, fresh water and food plus medical care. Pet owners are held to a higher standard of care for their animals. cruelty and neglect must stop. By sharing the awareness to foster better care, educate your family, friends, neighbors we help improve the quality of life for those animals great and small. 

Orange. A past student of the arts, an art lover, and won’t pass up the opportunity to visit our art galleries within the community. I pondered the reasoning behind why the ASPCA would consider Orange for the April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month!

So taking a moment to read up on the meaning of orange.  Orange is a power color, also one of  the healing colors. Orange represents the changing seasons so in that sense it is a color on the edge, the color of change between the heat of summer and the cool of winter.

Personally, the word “Change” makes all a good  point.  Be the Change to prevent animal cruelty. Another interesting fact is orange stimulates  social ‘change’. Orange is mentally stimulating, so while we look at the color, we stimulate thought and the reaction to make change. A useful color to get people thinking or get them talking about the need for change.

Be the Change to Prevent Animal Cruelty This April, for each person reading this post, may you share and help the social movement to draw awareness: animals great and small deserve a quality of life, for they give so much to us, we need to give back.

Thank you ~ Martha

      A simple pair of orange earrings, a pin, maybe a scarf will do : ) Kids could change out their white shoe string for orange. Lots of little ways to make a conversation : )

    I totally support your efforts to prevent animal cruelty, although as a blonde I look hideous in orange. Also, I’m overweight so people might mistake me for a pumpkin. Bummer!

    Here in Hawaii, we have a very proactive Humane Society that is shutting down puppy mills whenever they rear their ugly heads. It keeps the price of puppies higher than any other state, but that’s OK. Adopting a shelter dog is better anyway. Don’t you agree?

      Darby and I plus the farm animals would agree, adopt before you shop : )

    Pantone declared “tangerine orange” as the color of 2012 so perhaps the ASPCA wants to be trendy 🙂 as a vegan, I know I’ll be sporting orange throughout April – thanks for the heads up!

    I agree that animals give so much to us. I don’t understand why people abuse the animals. May be some people are just wired like that….It is great that people like you are trying so hard to prevent animal cruelty.

    You are correct that animals give more to us. We need to protect them from the cruel people.
    It is great that people like you are trying to make a difference. Orange is a good color for this April to prevent animal cruelty.
