Going out and advocating is a great way to be active for animals, but it’s not the only way. Keep yourself safe indoors with these easy ways to help animals from home!
1. Watch an animal-friendly film – and have a discussion afterwards.
Watching a film is always a great time, but these ones are extra-special because they have animal rights messages. After watching one, talk with your family about the message and think of ways to help animals like those in the story.
2. Read a book with an animal rights message.
There’s no better time than now to stay in and read a book (or a few). And these are the BEST books for compassionate kids like you, so we’re sure you’ll love them.
3. Get your colour on.
Feeling artistic? Go crazy with your crayons (or felt-tips, pencils, or even paint) and colour in one of these colouring sheets. Plus, check out the animal-friendly message on each one!

All animals deserve to be treated with respect and kindness, no matter what. With these super-cute videos, you can learn how other animals enjoy having fun and how we’re all more similar than some might think.
