Earth Day 2016 Kitties Blue badge


Please join Kitties Blue as we celebrate Earth Day 2016. Earth Day is all about preserving our planet and not squandering our resources. If we all work together to reduce our carbon footprints by following the five “Rs,” we can save our earth for future generations.

Here are some facts about Earth Day:

  • Earth Day is nearing its 50th anniversary. The now-worldwide holiday was founded in 1970 by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson, of Wisconsin.
  • Earth Day is now observed around the world with activities celebrating the environment and fighting for its preservation.
  • The Earth Day Network has launched an effort to plant 7.8 billion trees (one for every person on earth). Its theme for Earth Day 2016 is “Trees for Earth.”
  • This year’s Earth Day will be marked by the signing of the Paris Agreement that came out of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change in December 2015. The United States is one of 120 countries set to sign the agreement.

Other ways to help save our earth, as well as lives, are ones of which you are all familiar:








We need to reduce the numbers of unwanted animals and stop the euthanization of healthy, adoptable animals. We can do this by being responsible pet parents and advocates for those animals needing our help and protection.

So when you think of Earth Day and about what you can do for our planet, remember the animals inhabiting the earth and do all you can to help those who cannot speak for or take care of themselves.

Thank you.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
