    Animal Welfare

    A friend of mine recently sent me a petition to sign about a US state allowing dog breeders to increase the amount of animals they are allowed to breed from 25 to 100. ( I assume per season??) The problem they foresee with this is people turning their attention away from...

    We humans are animals too

    so what gives us the right to kill them, use there fur test on them? I have decided my life goal is to help put a stop to this and become a voice for the animals that don't have one!

    I've found that sometimes the greatest friend and family member can be a pet! Dogs, cats, gerbils, whatever! They can offer you more love and loyalty than most humans can or are willing to give. They deserves to be loved and treated with as many rights are people have. Animals...

    Those who abuse animals deserve I have the same

    thing they did done to then. But worse and to a higher degree to know what it's like. If it almost killed the animal it should almost kill them.

    My cats will come up to me and look me right in the eye and start talking to me about something. Don't know cat talk, so I don't know what they are trying to say. But I talk back to them and the "conversation" just keeps going. This is proof to me (maybe not to others, but to...

    I don't think my advocation of animal rights

    goes too far, seeing as many animals simply lack high cognitive function. But on a fundamental level, all animals have the right to life.

    If I wouldn't treat a person a certain way, I wouldn't treat an animal that way either.

    Why Do We Think We're Better?
