Science may have found a cure for most evils but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all...the apathy of human beings.

Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any way. Explore this section to learn more about the issues.



Every day in countries around the world, animals are fighting for their lives. They are enslaved, beaten, and kept in chains to make them perform for humans' "entertainment"; they are mutilated and confined to tiny cages so that we can kill them and eat them; they are burned, blinded, poisoned, and cut up alive in the name of "science"; they are electrocuted, strangled, and skinned alive so that people can parade around in their coats; and worse.
The abuse that animals suffer at human hands is heartbreaking, sickening, and infuriating. It's even more so when we realize that the everyday choices we make—such as what we eat for lunch and the kind of shampoo we buy—may be directly supporting some of this abuse. But as hard as it is to think about, we can't stop animals' suffering if we simply look the other way and pretend it isn't happening.
Animals are counting on compassionate people like you to give them a voice and be their heroes by learning about the issues they face and taking action. Each of us has the power to save animals from nightmarish suffering-and best of all, it's easier than you might think. If you're ready to join the millions of other compassionate people who are working to create a kinder, better world for animals, please read on to learn how animals suffer in the food, animal experimentation, entertainment, clothing and pet-trade industries. Together, we can make a difference.

The Importance of Human Lives


"What is the importance of human lives? Is it their continuing alive for so many years like animals in a menagerie? The value of a man cannot be judged by the number of diseases from which he escapes. The value of a man is in his human qualities: in his character, in his conscience, in the nobility and magnanimity, of his soul. Torturing animals to prolong human life has separated science from the most important thing that life has produced - the human conscience."

--John Cowper Powys

Talking To Animals


A lot of people spend time talking to animals but not that many people listen. That's the real problem.

The Meaning of Rescue


Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,
All nicely tucked in my warm new bed,
I'd like to open my baggage,
Lest I forget,
There is so much to carry,
So much to regret.

Hmmm...Yes, there it is, right on the top,
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss,
And there by my perch hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave,
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.
I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough - for they didn't want me.

Will you add to my baggage?
Will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things,
And take me right back?
Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage, to never repack?
I pray that you do - I'm so tired you see,
But I do come with baggage,
Will you still want me?

Humanity


We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals.  Animals suffer as much as we do.  True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them.  It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it.  Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace. 

~Albert Schweitzer, The Philosophy of Civilization

GOD'S CREATURES


WHEN I HEAR, "IT'S JUST AN ANIMAL!"
I HAVE BUT ONE REPLY.
SUPPOSE THOSE VERY WORDS WERE UTTERED
REGARDING YOU OR I?
WHAT IF WE WERE LEFT OUTSIDE
IN SNOW OR FREEZING RAIN?
DEPRIVED OF FOOD AND SHELTER –
FRIGHTENED OR IN PAIN!
AS HUMANS WE HAVE CHOICES -
TO HELP OR CLOSE OUR EYES.
BUT IT'S TOO LATE TO SAY WE CARE -
AFTER SOMETHING DIES!
WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION -
TO OUR "FRIENDS" BOTH LARGE AND SMALL.
PERHAPS WE SHOULD REMEMBER -
WE'RE "GOD'S CREATURES", ONE AND ALL!

Where do pets come from?


A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has provided the answer to "Where do pets come from?"


Adam said, "Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with me every day. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me."


And God said, "No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will know that I love you even when you cannot see me.

Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourself." And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam.

And it was a good animal. And God was pleased. And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail.

And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God said, "No problem! Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."

And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him.

And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believes he is worthy of adoration.

Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but perhaps too well." And the Lord said, "No problem! I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is.

The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not always worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being.

And Adam learned humility. And God was pleased. And Adam was greatly improved. And Dog was happy. And Cat didn't care one way or the other.

I long to be out there


I sit in this window and watch as you play
Oh I long to be out there
Enjoying the day
I don't understand why you leave me inside
we are best friends
I should be by your side
I sit here and watch as you tend to the flowers
While you water each one
sometimes it takes hours
Each time you glance up and see me still here
I'm hoping you'll notice
my need to be there
You say its not safe
because mountain lions roam
You are worried if I get out
I may never come home
So I guess Ill just sit here
from my window with a view
and be grateful you love me....I love you too.
