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."

St. Francis of Assisi

Viva! - Vegetarians International Voice for Animals

"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.

Introduction
Vegatopia is dedicated to providing a comprehensive academic resource on all things vegan. If you are a student, researcher or teacher interested in any aspect of veganism this is the site for you. We aim to provide you with access to as wide a range of academic resources on veganism as possible and hope that through the inter- and multi- disciplinary sharing of ideas, this site will facilitate new areas of research into vegan-related issues. We want Vegatopia to be an interactive forum for dialogue, informing individual and collaborative research and teaching, as well as making a contribution to vegan activism and having a positive impact on veganism in a wider sense.

A website worth visiting by every one even if you are not an academic
