Please join the Arkansas Week for Animals community and let's all help Arkansas animals!

​The COVID pandemic delayed our Arkansas Week for the Animals over past few years. We look forward to returning to celebrate Arkansas animals!
The 9th Annual Arkansas Week for the Animals kicks off November 23, 2019.  The Calendar of Events page details events taking place across Arkansas during this exciting Arkansas Week for the Animals.   

To see how other states have celebrated their Week for Animals  please visit http://www.weeksfortheanimals.org/

Throughout the week, shelters, rescue groups, and humane organizations across the state will be hosting other wonderful animal-related special events.  Educators, students, businesses and caring citizens across Arkansas will be joining in as well, each planning activities to celebrate and help animals.  

Events will include adoption events, spay/neuter low cost events, winterizing shelters, R.E.A.D. dog programs in libraries, activities for the animals and therapy dogs visiting hospitals and living-assisted homes.

Also to be included are a salute to our K9 military and working dogs, youth programs, and fun-filled fall festivals for families to come and enjoy food, music and the amazing animals!

Become Involved! Events are being planned now, and we urge animal lovers everywhere in Arkansas to participate!  See the page "Become Involved" on this website for lots of great ideas  on what you can do in your community.

See the Calendar of Events for exciting events and please note we will be adding events and activities even through the week. Contact us to have your shelter, organization or event added. God Bless the great state of Arkansas!
