If you notice a neighbor’s pet outside in the heat for too long, please do something.
If you see a pet wandering alone outside, please don’t assume they are okay. They may be a missing pet or be a stray in need of help. Do something.
If you notice a pet in a car in a store parking lot, do something. Since its hard to know how long they have been in the car or will be, bring the license plate number to the store so they can announce it over the intercom. Other things you can do is call the police or 911. Laws are different depending on where you are about whether it is ok to break a car window to get a pet out of a hot car.

Last year I took a course through RedRover called “RedRover Readers.” Here is a paragraph explaining a bit about the program.
The RedRover Readers program promotes empathy by presenting powerful stories, encouraging children to put themselves in the place of animals, and asking questions that promote critical thinking. A 2009 pilot study of the program (then known as the Humane Education Ambassador Readers) conducted by Inverness Research, Inc. suggests that the program:
~Builds self-esteem and motivates students to take an important subject seriously
~Stimulates additional student-directed learning
~Builds students’ knowledge and potentially affects their behaviors related to caring for pets
~Builds students’ empathy and compassion for pets

As far as the caring more about animals than humans, it’s not about that. It’s about the fact that animals are being abused and are suffering and somebody has to help them.
I heard a story about two young guys who cut off a dog’s ears and then took a selfie.

Here is where the United States is in the matter of “Animal Protection Laws.” As you can see from the map below, we need more green! This map is showing the United States, but there is work to be done for animals everywhere. Do you know what your current laws are?
