Welcome to The Anti-Cruelty Society’s webpage just for kids!  Here, you will find loads of information about pets and how to care for them, as well as games, puzzles, and activities to test your animal smarts

Animal Safety

Have you ever wondered why your cat’s tail swishes around when you’re petting her? Or why your dog never looks at the camera when you’re trying to snap a cute pic? Pets can’t talk like humans can, so they communicate with their bodies. This form of “talking” is called body language. Learning about animal body language can help you safely meet pets. Click here to learn All About Pet Safety, and then take our Bite Prevention Pledge!


Caring for Pets

Having a pet is a lot of work!  In addition to your love, they need all of the same things you do to be healthy: wholesome food, fresh water, a cozy home, and doctors’ visits for when they get sick or hurt.  Do you think you have what it takes to be a top-notch pet owner?  Click here to learn All About Pet Care, and then test your wit with our games and puzzles!
