    This 2015 article is worth reading again now, because the battle against fur – with a large proportion of so-called faux fur being real animal skin – continues, and will continue as long as wearing fur (real, faux, or fake-faux) is fashionable. Leather is part of it, too, because a great deal of skin of animals such as dogs and cats remains on the…[Read more]


  • THIS IS A GOOD ARTICLE THAT GETS INTO THE MINDS OF PEOPLE WHO LOVE SOME ANIMALS BUT WANT TO VICIOUSLY EXTERMINATE OTHERS DUE TO A FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THAT NATURE IS DYNAMIC AND NEVER STATIC – ESPECIALLY IN THIS AGE OF CLIMATE CHANGE, IN WHICH SPECIES WIL BE SHUFFLED FROM SOUTH TO NORTH AND EAST TO WEST. “An epoch of human globalisation is mixing…[Read more]


  • Chickens form relationships with other animals – other chickens, of course, but also members of other species with whom the chicken lives in proximity. My beloved rescue-chicken, Klinka, now deceased, was the boss of a household that included numerous cats and dogs. She became my dear friend, and on her “deathbed” would respond to my voice even…[Read more]

    As one who has witnessed it, I will say that there is in general a higher level of deliberate cruelty that seems to be inherent in the dog and cat meat trades (worse for cats even than dogs). Because dogs and cats will fight their killers with tooth and claw, restraint techniques used in slaughtering dogs and cats are violent, above and beyond…[Read more]


  • In addition to the Egyptian government insuring that the working horses will be fed, they must also establish regulations for the humane treatment of draft animals – including adequate hoof care with shoes for horses driven on paved roads, watering troughs and rest periods under sun shades, restriction on the use of animals when temperatures are…[Read more]


  • Donkeys are among the groups of animals whose massive populations worldwide are treated most cruelly. The latest schemes by Asian countries (led by China) to import donkeys from Africa and the Middle East for brutal slaughter and skinning so that the hides may be used for beauty and health products adds another layer of acute suffering for these…[Read more]


  • Like Peter Marra, “I’m an advocate for animals, including cats. I want what’s best for them. And the best thing for cats is to be inside” – whether they like it or not. I want there to be a world in which there are no homeless cats hunting birds or other wildlife. But in the meantime, it is grossly unfair to blame animal activists for the presenc…[Read more]

    Pit bull bans are cruel to both the dogs and the people who have taken them into their homes and love them. Unfortunately, there are many people who […]

    • Thank you for your bravery on this issue. Most groups–aside from PETA, to their credit–are too afraid of the dog breeding lobby to support breeding bans for these very unfortunate and overbred animals.
      I too support BSL in the form of mandatory spay/neuter for all pit bulls–it’s the most fair and humane way.

  • How about we stop protecting animal agriculture and eliminate the “looming threat of avian flu” by eliminating the poultry industry? At some point avian flu will mutate into just the right organism to decimate the human population, but in the meantime the cruelties inflicted on birds so that humans can eat them makes us morally deserving of a…[Read more]

  • It hurts to be boiled alive, which is scientific fact for crustaceans. As long as killing them is what we do to unwelcome migrant creatures (and often people, too), there is little hope that humans will develop a more humane ethic that will allow us to live lighter on the earth and learn to share it with the other animals. If environmental…[Read more]

  • I think I’ve said before how good all the Gardein products are. The orangey Mandarin non-chicken is ever so good, especially if you add some veggies like sugar snap peas and tomatoes and serve with rice. The beef less burger is almost incredibly good, especially with the only vegan sliced non-cheese I like, which is Chao. Except for Trader Joe’s…[Read more]
