Announcing the Wisconsin Humane Society's
Be Kind to Animals Week
"Open Hearts and Homes"
Be Kind to Animals Week is the oldest celebrated week in the nation! Recognized officially by the 108th Congress in 1915, this special week continues to remind us of the things animals do to enhance our lives.
Joining the celebration of Be Kind to Animals Week, May 5-11, 2013, hundreds of kids participated in our annual contests! It’s a wonderful way for young people to spread the word about being kind to animals and express themselves creatively. The theme for 2013 is "Open Hearts and Homes."
Each year, the Wisconsin Humane Society encourages young people to join our celebration by entering our Art Contests.
2013 Contest Categories:
TAGXEDO (K5-grade 12)
