Organizations Putting Animals First

4 The Love Of Animals

Thankfully, there are some organizations out there that make it their business to look after and care for our animal counterparts. Formed in 2007, this organization seeks to promote the humane treatment of animals by promoting effective animal sanctuary management. Led by professionals who have experience with organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States, the group is definitely not new to the issues surrounding animals worldwide.

An Animal Rights-Protection-Abolitionist Organization

Animal Person

The Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages calls itself "an animal rights-protection-abolitionist organization," which I find interesting. The well being of the horses should be the ideal of every organization whose mandate is to put animal protection ideals first - especially when they ask for donations based on that mandate. I've always thought of horse-drawn carriages the way I think about greyhound racing or fur: Most people are against them, so why are they still around?

Organic Food

Animal Ethics

Here is a New York Times editorial opinion about organic fish. The Times argues that the concept of organic food does not apply to wild animals. If organically raised fish suffer less than nonorganically raised fish, it is an accident, morally speaking. I'm not saying that there is no correlation between an animal being organically raised and it being treated in a morally permissible way; I'm saying that any such correlation is contingent rather than necessary.

Getting Emotional

Creature Talk

I’m vegan, and I educate others about veganism; I write this blog; I volunteer for an animal rights organization doing office work and event planning; and I have a dog and a cat whom I love dearly… but none of it really feels like enough. Sometimes being an animal rights advocate is emotionally exhausting. Today is one of those days. Last night I was watching Animal Planet, as I often do, and the show was about polar bears in the wild.

Please Share "Silencing the Lambs"

Animal Person

I understand how someone who supports the Humane Society of the United States might think an event celebrating "humane" farms would be a good id, as HSUS isn't an animal rights organization. Thanks, once again, to James LaVeck and Jenny Stein of Tribe of Heart for kindly and carefully bringing attention to what should be a stunningly-obvious moment of hypocrisy by groups that exist to advocate for and save animals.
