April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month, and each year our friends at the ASPCA® urge supporters across the country to support their efforts and Go Orange for Animals to mark the signing of the ASPCA's charter in 1866.

In honor of the ASPCA’s 147 years of helping animals, we’re awarding one lucky entrant a $100 gift certificate. Plus, we’ll have a photo album on Facebook of pets showing their support of the ASPCA’s mission! 

To enter, like us on Facebook, fill out our short entry form and upload a picture of your pet sporting some orange. Or tweet a picture to @ASPCAPetIns with the hashtag #Pets4ASPCA! 

The winner will be randomly selected. See the full official rules here.

If you are looking for inspiration, the ASPCA offers some tips how to “Go Orange.”

ASPCA Happenings

April brings along some interesting pet events:

• National Pet ID week, April 15 to 21 – Does your pet have an ID tag? A tag could be a lifesaver if your furry friend gets lost.
• National Pet First Aid Month – Brush up on your first aid knowledge so you know what to do in case your pet has an accident.
• National Hairball Awareness Day, April 27 – Give your cat or dog a good grooming in honor of this (cough) interesting holiday.

April is also Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month in honor of the ASPCA®'s founding in 1866. Find out how you can "Go Orange for Animals" at the ASPCA's website.
