Be Kind to Animals Contest

Be Kind to Animals Week is the oldest celebrated week in the nation!  Kids of all ages are welcome to participate in our annual Be Kind to Animals Week Poster, Poetry, Photography, and Digital Art Contests

It’s a fun way for children to express their creativity and to spread the word about being kind to animals.

The theme for 2015 is COMPASSION COUNTS. Time and time again, we have witnessed the life-changing impacts of those who put compassion into action to help animals and people in our community. This theme challenges kids to illustrate the power of compassion and the difference it can make in the lives of animals and people.

Winning entries will be displayed at the Wisconsin Humane Society Milwaukee and Ozaukee Campuses during the month of May and published in a special art book. A ceremony honoring winners will be held in early May at each campus.

The deadline for 2015 entries has passed.
Please check back next spring!

For more information, please contact the Education Department at the Milwaukee Campus at 414-431-6153 or the Ozaukee Campus at 262-988-5947.
