I am at a loss for words. Just watch and feel The Sirens of the lambs, part of Banksy`s residency in New York Better Out Than In. Now, for additional context and a vegan perspective, read this post by Mercy for Animals.

The biggest earthquake since 1976 hit Guatemala last week. At a time when animals are not in most of my fellow citizen’s minds, I marvel at the courage that others, halfway across from my country, display to save one animal (while others are taught to embrace torture as a right of passage).

Endless suffering of strays prompts exile. A Duffboy six-word memoir, inspired by a Guatemalan town’s overt neglect towards stray dogs.
Not to be in a Debbie Downer mode, but I’ve been meaning to start a series of posts related to corporate sponsors of rodeos and other so-called attractions that foster animal cruelty. Mad props to SHARK (Showing Animals Respect and Kindness). Here are a few corporations that have been publicly linked to rodeos: Bank of America Enterprise […]
That is what I call commitment. “Hello. My name is CircusesHurtAnimals.com.” Could you ever forget that name? Formerly known as Dan Carron, PETA Foundation staffer CircusesHurtAnimals.com is using that simple introduction to draw awareness to the circus’s routine animal abuse. Now that his driver’s license is officially changed, CircusesHurtAnimals.com only has to say his name to educate […]

He had the opportunity to visit Knut, while in Germany, and had a first hand glimpse into the massive popularity of the animal: there were […]
Remember a few months ago I told you I wanted to read Eating Animals, by Jonathan Safran Foer? Well, I did… and it changed my life. There’s so much I wish to write about it, but I’ll just start by quoting part of page 255, after a testimonial from a factory farm worker describing the […]
