Wear Orange to Prevent Animal Cruelty

The DogSmith National Dog Training and Pet Care Franchise urges all animal lovers to support the ASPCA during their annual ‘Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month.’

This year the ASPCA is celebrating 145 years of fighting animal cruelty and throughout the month, they are encouraging members and all animal lovers to show their support by donning the ASPCA’s signature color and ‘going orange’ for animals in recognition of their victories in the fight against animal cruelty.

According to Niki Tudge, President of The DogSmith, “Our locally owned and operated DogSmith Franchises are committed to preventing cruelty and neglect to all animals, especially companion animals and family pet members. Each DogSmith dog trainer volunteers their expertise at animal shelters through our ‘Canine Rescue Resources Program’ and our corporate philosophy is built on helping minimize the number of abused and neglected pets by providing free resources and affordable dog training and pet care services.” According to their website, part of The DogSmith’s mission is to ‘support and assist animal shelters and rescue organizations to minimize the number of unwanted animals’ by making shelter pets more adoptable and by helping families retain their pets through effective training.
