This year, why not pledge to put your best paw forward to make 2022 another great year for animals? Below are 11 ideas on how to make a New Year's Resolution for animals.

Will you join the challenge to #LiveKinder this year?

Collectively, all of us have the power to help animals if we #LiveKinder - kinder in what we eat, kinder in what we wear, and kinder in how we treat animals, the planet, and the people.

Shop kinder

to make companies consider animal welfare in their supply chains. In 2021, 43% of 111 international brands do not have animal welfare policies.

Here are some ways to shop kind.

Adopt or foster a shelter animal

 and save a life. Help break the cycle of homeless stray animals and avoid unscrupulous puppy breeders. Adopt, don't shop.
 If, at the moment, you are unable to commit for a lifetime, fostering saves lives too!

Choose kinder food

 In 2021, the number of Aussies adopting a plant-based diet has skyrocketed as concerns for health, environmental, and animal welfare grow!

It does not take much to try a plant-based diet. Find out more here.
