The SPCA Answers program is the centerpiece of our educational initiatives. It serves as an information hub and a referral resource for animal lovers, pet parents and animal welfare activists throughout the world. SPCA Answers connects people with local shelters, helps initiate cruelty investigations, assists animal advocates in their fight against cruelty, offers individual support for people dealing with unique situations, and much more. Every year, SPCA International directly helps thousands of pets and animal advocates through the SPCA Answers program.
In 2009, SPCA International expaned SPCA Answers program on the web through Facebook, Twitter and the SPCAI Blog. Through these new viral outlets SPCA International staff, guest experts and informed volunteers post important information and respond to questions and inquiries from people around the globe. Wherever you are loving and saving animals, the SPCA Answers program is here to help.
One of the greatest weapons we have in the fight against animal cruelty is our children. Teaching future generations to respect and love all creatures lays the foundation for a healthy attitude toward animals. The most basic way to ensure this is to properly teach children how to interact with their pets and others. Just as in animals, a persons aggression can come from a place of fear if they've had a bad experience in their past. A good general rule of thumb for children to understand is “treat others the way you would like to be treated”. We often teach children this in reference to other humans, but it is a lesson that can extend to every creature.
