Spread the Word
Consider doing your next research paper, speech in class or article in your school newspaper about an animal-related topic.

There are many animal related issues that deserve discussion such as spay/neuter, responsible animal care, and treating all animals with respect and kindness. There are lots of books, websites and magazines devoted to the subject. You can get information at your local library. Ask your local librarian to set up a display of animal-related books and magazines so other kids can read about them as well.
