    Yes, I Do

     Animals should have rights... what makes humans so much better? Seriously? Look what we've done to the world. I really hate killing animals for sport. I mean, eat the poor thing if you're going to kill it. And never take your anger out on an animal. (ESPECIALLY MINE!) ...

    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...

    Animals Are My Passion.

    Animals of all kinds should be given rights. Why should we walk up and kill an Innocent animal for no reason other then sport? I mean I've thought about it and how can it be gratifying to kill a defenseless animal? Who knows it makes no sense to me at all! Animals are should be...

    What Keeps You Going?

    This subject has probably been discussed, but I think it's something that's very important to remember. Believing in animal rights, to whatever degree that you do, there will always be harsh criticism. You can't convince everyone, nor is everyone willing to listen. And sometimes...

    Why Do We Think We're Better?
