News From the lrc

Be Kind To Animals Week

“On the first week of May every year, millions of Americans come together to voice their concern for and improve the wellness, welfare, and well-being of the nation’s animals by celebrating American Humane’s “Be Kind to Animals Week®,” the oldest commemorative week in American history. Generations of schoolchildren have learned the value of treating all creatures of the earth with care, making it the most popular and successful humane education effort ever. Founded in 1877, American Humane is the country’s first national humane organization and the only one dedicated to protecting both children and animals.

"The need for compassion has never been greater," said Robin Ganzert, Ph.D., president and CEO of American Humane. "I hope every American will join us in celebrating 'Be Kind to Animals Week' and making a difference for all the creatures of the Earth – not just during these several days, but all year round." Click on the following link for more information: BeKindToAnimals

These include:

  • Always treating your pets with love and affection, make sure they are always in safe environments and have plenty of fresh water and exercise daily.

  • Spay or neuter your pets and encourage others to do the same.

  • Keep your pets current on vaccinations and make sure they are wearing up-to-date identification tags and are microchipped.

  • Report any suspected animal abuse or neglect to local authorities.

  • Teach your children that all animals are important and show them how to be kind and respectful to animals both in the home and to those they encounter in parks, zoos or in their neighborhood.

  • Appreciate wildlife. Plant flowers in your yard that will attract butterflies or hummingbirds. Drive safely through areas populated by wild animals such as deer.


How To Be A Good Creature By Sy Montgomery

With plenty of heart, acclaimed naturalist Montgomery (The Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness, 2015, etc.) makes the convincing case that all animals—great and small—can teach us compassion. Ever since her parents gave her a Scottie puppy, the author’s fascination with the animal world has been insuppressible, and she made that obsession into a career writing about animals in more than 20 books. Montgomery’s latest, however, is not merely an examination of one species, as in The Soul of an Octopus and other books. Here, the author looks at 13 of the most important animals in her life and how they changed her. KirkusBookReview


The Education of Will By Patricia B. McConnell

How training an incorrigible puppy helped an internationally renowned animal behaviorist recover from “multiple traumas.” During her 25-year career, McConnell (For the Love of a Dog: Understanding Emotion in You and Your Best Friend, 2006, etc.) has trained both aggressive dogs "voicelessly telling me how frightened they were" and their owners, many of whom were unable to understand their pets' signals without her direction. As the author notes, throughout her career, she has “used science, art, and empathy to help ‘problem dogs’ have a voice; to listen to what they are trying to tell us and help them and their families be happy together.” KirkusBookReview


Endangered By Eliot Schrefer

(First of a four book series) “On her way to spend the summer at the bonobo sanctuary her mother runs, 14-year-old Sophie rescues a sickly baby bonobo from a trafficker. Though her Congolese mother is not pleased Sophie paid for the ape, she is proud that Sophie works to bond with Otto, the baby. A week before Sophie's to return home to her father in Miami, her mother must take advantage of a charter flight to relocate some apes, and she leaves Sophie with Otto and the sanctuary workers. War breaks out, and after missing a U.N. flight out, Sophie must hide herself and Otto from violent militants and starving villagers.” KirkusBookReview



The class of 2022 will be honored at the Commencement Ceremony on May 23 at 7:30 pm inside the Convocation Center at NIU. There is ample seating and tickets will NOT be required.
