Animal Shelters

National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week is November 6 - 12, 2011. In 1996, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) launched National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. This campaign was designed to acknowledge and promote the invaluable role shelters play in their communities and to increase public awareness of animal welfare issues and shelter services. Vermont's humane societies are full of wonderful cats, dogs and other animals just waiting for the right home. Visit one today and you may just find your new best friend.

We'd like to thank Puppets in Education and the Humane Society of Chittenden County for helping us spread the word about the invaluable service that shelters play.

Martha Speaks

Martha Speaks is an animated series aimed at viewers between the ages of four and seven, Martha's educational goal is to teach kids new words. Based on the children's book series by Susan Meddaugh and published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the series stars Martha, a beloved family dog. She is accidentally fed alphabet soup — this gives her the power of speech and the chance to speak her mind to anyone that will listen. In addition to teaching new vocabulary, Martha Speaks has another important mission: to help children and families understand animals, animal safety, and the importance of ending animal cruelty and homelessness. Many of the show's episodes incorporate information about how to treat animals humanely, be a responsible pet owner, and support animal shelters. Visit the Martha Speaks website for more information on helping animals and National Animal Appreciation Week
