About the event
National Justice for Animals Week takes place the fourth week of February each year. In 2023 this week takes place from February 19 to 25. We should all agree that concepts of justice should also serve the voiceless: dogs, cats, and all beings with feathers, claws, fins, or fur. Take, for instance, the story of Katarina the Pitbull. Law enforcement officers rescued her from a horrendous puppy mill, and she’s now on the long road to recovery in a happy new home. And then, there’s Chuck the duck — one of the 150 animals rescued from terrible conditions by Animal Rescue Corps. All of these stories serve a sense of hope. But they have more in common as well. Katarina and Chuck are some of the official representatives of National Justice for Animals Week. Their cases demonstrate the power of collective action to make a lasting difference for animals in need. National Justice for Animals Week is an annual event dedicated to raising awareness about animal abuse: how to identify and report it, and how to rally your community to create stronger laws and enforcement.
