“I ask people why they have deer heads on their walls. They always say it’s because its such a beautiful animal. I think my mother is attractive but I have photographs of her.” Ellen Degeneres

  • Give an hour a week walking dogs at your local humane society
  • Donate food, blankets and toys to animal shelter
  • Adopt pets from shelters not puppy mills
  • Cut out meat for a day
  • Support local organic farms

 

How we treat animals is a great indicator of how evolved we are as a society.  It is important not only for the animals but for us as well that we support proper treatment of animals.  Thousands of species of animals have become extinct as a direct result of our influence on earth.  These are animals that will never be here again.  Everyday kill shelters are forced to to euthanize 10’s if not 100’s of cats and dogs.  Our meat consumption has forced out the local farmer and brought in corporate conglomerates to mass produce this food resulting in terrible treatment and conditions for the animals that bring us our sustenance.  All animals give to us is their love or nourishment, what do we give in return?
