    The title pretty much says it all. I like most kinds of animals, but I hate pets. For my entire life, my family has had one pet or another. They ALWAYS require upkeep. From feeding to cleaning. From toys to shots. They have all needed and needed and needed. I have a hard enough...

    In fact, I LOVE animals.

    They have always been good to me, and I want to return the favor. Stop animal abuse. Save the wolves.

    I believe animals are more human

    than we are. I also believe they know our deepest secrets. We show them our sensitivities when no one else is around, and they comfort us better than our own race. They have more sympathy for us than we have for each other, and it's sadder to lose them from our lives because...
