Not to hurt our humble brethren the animals is our first duty to
them - but to stop there is not enough: we have a higher duty - to be of service to them whenever they require it."

"Eating meat; fish and dairy causes environmental destruction, damages human health, contributes to global hunger and inflicts immense suffering on billions of animals across the world. Viva! believes that the solution to all these problems is in our own hands: the best way to stop the destruction and the cruelty is to stop eating animals now – go vegetarian, or better still, vegan.

circle of compassion

A spiritual theme for people of all faiths and none. Thought provoking articles.  Below is an extraction from their purpose page. 

The deep-seated cause of animal suffering.
Worldwide animal cruelty and exploitation are symptoms of a deeply embedded, speciesist world-view that maintains that certain human beings have the right to commodify, exploit, enslave, and kill whomever they deem ‘less than human.’ Let us address the cause of animal suffering holistically:

•Both physically through non-violent action, and
•Metaphysically by spiritually encircling the world with compassion for all life. We must not underestimate how powerful our thoughts and prayers can be.

PCA honors the prayer traditions of all religions and encourages participants to use any form of prayer, meditation, or focused thought that is comfortable. In fact, Circle members who have no particular spiritual beliefs but who believe in the proven power of focused thought are absolutely welcome. There are no requirements to joining the Prayer Circle for Animals other than an interest in helping animals through prayer or focused thought and a willingness to commit to faithfully repeating at least once daily this Prayer for the Animals in a heartfelt mood of thanksgiving for the ongoing manifestation of love and peace on earth.

The Site For Animals

A website promoting justice for animals. Includes Information highlighting atrocities committed to animals around the world and action you can take.

"If a great change is to override human tyranny of animals, a great collection of human minds will by word and deed authorize such change. And the inevitable opposition will appear to be opposed to the decrees of Justice itself, rather than the fervent desires of a compassionate multitude. Factual cause, however shocking, can
incite desires for a legal and moral change of the moral status of animals broadly defined.

This site is a huge amalgam of factual cause not publicized by your newspaper."

J. B. Suconik

A website advocating animals rights with comprehensive information concerning animal rights and veganism, an extensive resource of information.

An interesting website well worth a visit for anyone interested in the welfare of animals. - Promoting Compassion for America’s Most Abused Animals

"Cows, pigs, chickens, and other animals commonly exploited by agribusiness are sentient beings—capable of awareness, feeling, and suffering—and humans have an ethical obligation to refrain from behaviors which inflict suffering upon these animals. Sentient beings deserve an environment and conditions which allow them to fulfill their natural behaviors and achieve a state of well-being."
