The Scoop on the SPCA

Who helps animals in danger? Who makes sure they're taken care of and not neglected? The SPCA, that's who! Find out what this non-profit organization is all about.

Take a Bite Out of Animal Crime

The SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) is dedicated to preventing cruelty towards animals. They're kind of like the animal police - if they find out that people are hurting their pets by physically abusing them or neglecting them by not feeding them properly, they'll take away the animals and care for them until they can find 'em new homes. In addition to protecting and providing shelter to strays and animals in danger, the SPCA deals with proper pet care and animal adoption.

Paws With a Cause

Every year, the SPCA takes in millions of cats and dogs that are abused, lost, or unwanted. Although many of these animals find new homes or are reunited with their owners, countless others have to be put to sleep because the SPCA can't take care of all of them. That's why they came up with the SPCA Pet S.O.S. program. When you register your pet at the SPCA, they give you a tag with a unique identification number that you attach to your pet's collar. If it ever wanders off, the S.O.S. alert will help you get your pet back!

How You Can Volunteer at the SPCA

Want to volunteer for the SPCA? There are lots of different things you can do, like walk dogs, clean up cages, and wash and groom the animals. Or, if you're looking for a new best friend (and you're ready and willing to take care of it) you can drag your parents to your local SPCA to adopt an animal instead of buying one at the pet store. You can adopt all sorts of pets, including dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, rodents and reptiles.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

GayGarbage
Dear Dish-it, Sorry to be a burden, but I need some advice. About a year ago, I decided I didn't want to live with my mom and decided to move in with my dad. After my mom found out, she told me "You are no longer my child, go drop dead and rot in hell for all I care." My siblings, especially my twin, began to threaten me and my father's lives if we were to ever step foot near them again. A year later, my dad and I get in massive fights about everything I do wrong and he never seems to try and see my point of view. He often gets ##### and compares me to my mother and his previous exes. I feel lost on what to do. I feel so alone and so...hurt. Do you have any advice? I know it's pathetic of me to rant on here, but I'm clueless and on the verge of snapping.

My dad and I are kind of estranged, we haven't spoken in a year. So my mom decides it would be a good idea to let him message me. He texted me while I was at school and now I have no idea what to do. All he said was 'Hi _, how is school?'. Do I reply? Do I not? If I do, what do I say? My mom and grandparents are no help, they just cracked jokes about it. KidzWorld has helped me with a hell lot of things, I better not be let down this time.

Just act like you were introducing him as one of your friends. Be yourself, wear stuff that’s comfortable. It’s okay to be nervous because everyone will be. Just hang out and have fun.
