The look of awe on this cat's face is just priceless! <3
Fur is worn by ugly humans and beautiful animals.
A Jewish philosopher speaks out against the inhumanity of the meat industry.
Humans are omnivores but that doesn't mean we need to eat meat. Being omnivores means we are opportunist eaters. Our ancestors would have eaten whatever they found, plant food and the remains of predator kills. As omnivores, we can lead very healthy lives without animal products in our diet, and more importantly, we can lead very humane, compassionate lives.
How genetic engineering has changed the chicken, adversely affecting their health and ours.

"Slaughterhouse" by Gail A. Eisnitz. A thought-provoking book about the U.S. Meat Industry.
Monash University, Australia is performing cruel eye and brain experiments on marmosets. These painful experiments are funded by Australian citizens tax dollars without their knowledge or agreement.
On the 20th March 2018, the World's last male northern white rhino dies, and still, trophy hunters are given permission to kill rhinos because hunters pay the big bucks to slaughter endangered species. How much money is "enough" if it means a species is wiped off the face of the Earth? Also ignorant people still purchase rhino horn (which is simply the same substance as our own fingernails and hair) to enhance their "virility", encouraging ruthless poachers to continue killing these innocent creatures until rhinos are wiped off the face of our planet.
This image shows how recently, thousands of baby pigs and mama pigs were buried alive. There was a remedy for their suspected ailment, but instead of applying the known remedy for the disease, or at the very least, using humane ways of putting them down, these people chose the "cost-efficient" choice, bury them alive. I hope the spirits of these poor animals, haunt them in their sleep.
Humans fed hungry dogs beneath tanks so the dogs would equate a tank with being fed. The starved dog in this photograph is expecting a meal, but instead, once it reached the tank, the bomb on its back was exploded. Tell me again how humans are more evolved and compassionate than other species?
