Animals are sentient beings who experience pleasure and joy and form bonds with other animals including humans. An animal's life is as important to them as your life is to you.

Most people turn away from this reality as it's difficult to acknowledge but by being here, you've taken the first step by opening your eyes to the truth about the way our society routinely abuses animals.
