That said, below are some really good choices allergy-sufferers should consider adopting: 1. When I was 12-years-old, my 6 pound Chihuahua was involved in a tragic fatal accident. It was bit of a traumatic experience for me and I vowed to never own an animal again.

Birds Suffering from Oil Spill

Critter News

Pelicans unable to fly due to being coated with oil. It's the Exxon Valdez all over again. Several pelicans were coated in oil on Barataria Bay off Louisiana, their usually brown and white feathers now jet black. Pelican eggs were glazed with rust-colored gunk, and new hatchlings and nests were also coated with crude. It is unclear if the area can even be cleaned, or if the birds can be saved.

Animal Ethics

My view, then, is not that which it has often been taken to be in discussion and which Singer, Regan, Clark, and others blast in their work; I am not suggesting that, because they lack language, animals can be factory farmed without suffering. Animals can suffer, which they could not unless they were conscious; so they are conscious. Animals have only welfare-rights, the most important of which is the right not to be made to suffer

John Passmore (1914-2004) on Animal Suffering

Animal Ethics

Neither Aquinas nor Kant nor Newman denied, however, that animals could suffer: Descartes and Malebranche thought differently. To suppose that animals could feel would be to suggest that there could be pain and suffering where there has been no sin. It is impossible, they argued, to be cruel to animals, since animals are incapable of feeling.

More importantly, those animals suffer greatly during their short lives, only to end up at a slaughter house where they will be killed for food. A while back PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) offered $1 million to any company or person who could come up with a cost effective way to produce cloned meat on a large scale, the goal being that people could still satisfy their meat cravings, but that animals wouldn’t have to be slaughtered for that purpose.

Though we don't know the extent to which plants experience any kind of suffering, we do know that sentient nonhumans experience pain, pleasure, boredom and frustration. For me, atheism and veganism go hand-in-hand. Most of us were born to or adopted by people who eat animals and believe in a god, and that was all a mere accident of birth and/or geography. But something inside us (and perhaps prompted by something outside us) gradually (or quickly) questioned what was occurring.
