"The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. Thatís the essence of inhumanity.

George Bernard Shaw




What You Can Do

  • Adopt your companion animals from shelters or rescue organizations -- do not purchase them from a breeder or pet store; encourage others to do the same.
  • Do not patronize marine parks, aquaria, zoos, circuses and other businesses that capture animals from the wild for profit.
  • Write to your legislators to ban canned hunting.
  • Write to lawmakers and the legal community to increase and pursue maximum penalties and sentences for animal abusers.
  • Educate family members, friends and acquaintances who fish or hunt about the cruelty behind and unnecessity for these "sports."
  • Encourage your local education and mental health community to understand the connection between violence/abuse toward animals and humans.
