Animal Welfare / Advocacy

"The awful wrongs and sufferings forced upon the innocent, faithful animal race, form the blackest chapter in the whole world's history.  Edward Augustus Freeman

"There can be no justification for causing suffering to animals simply to serve man's pleasure or simply to enhance man's lifestyle."  The Dean of York

“It has always been comforting to the dominant group to assume that those in subservient positions do not suffer or feel pain as keenly, or at all.” When Elephants Weep, by Jeffrey Moussaieff & Susan McCarthy

Never be afraid to speak the truth – the voiceless need courageous individuals to step forward and persevere. Silence is deafening, if not deadly. Carmina Gooch

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” —Elie Wiesel

It’s common sense that animals have emotions. It’s all about money, greed, uncaringness & self-interest that we exploit all species and the whole planet for humans only.

"In this culture, especially with regard, or lack of regard, to nonhuman animals, it is often easier to get away with murder than it is to save lives." David Sztybel, Canadian philosopher in animal ethics

 but we can change how those laws are enforced.

Compassion is an action word with no boundaries

We are united in the fight for the voiceless
