Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our
circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature and its beauty.
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul
It can so often seem that the world is a very
uncaring place and animal, and indeed human, abuse
is rife, it is as though we are drowning in cruelty
and suffering. Yet in the midst of all the
awfulness, all the exploitation, all the greed and
suffering brought about by humans there are people
who care deeply about animals.
Firstly three videos
showing people who care for animals followed by a small selection of the huge
number of sanctuaries and other organisations and
individuals throughout the world who care for

This poor dog though so abused still retains a

Arunachala Animal Sanctuary and Rescue Shelter -
" I've seen a lot of rescue shelters in my travels
throughout Asia. This one sets the standard in every
way. But most of all because this one truly
understands that "love is the best medicine"."

"We're not only reducing the stray dog population in
Tiruvannamalai and treating sick and injured animals
of all kinds ... we're loving them too. Unless
animals feel safe and loved, deep healing will not
take place. For the animals that stay with us for a
brief time, or for a long time, it is by far the
most important blessing we can give.
Heartland Rabbit Rescue is a nonprofit, no-kill
rescue and shelter devoted to providing rescue and
care for abandoned and neglected domestic rabbits,
the only shelter dedicated to rabbits in the state
of Oklahoma. http://www.heartlandrabbitrescue.org/
"In 1997, Jeannie Patterson, founder and director for
Heartland, rescued a young rabbit. In researching
the needs of the domestic rabbit, she learned that
Oklahoma had no facility for their care. In 2000,
Heartland Rabbit Rescue was created.
In 2003, Jeannie and her husband Brad designed and
built two buildings (called 'warrens') outside
Blanchard, Oklahoma. One warren provides shelter for
adoptable rabbits, and is always at full capacity.
The other warren is the infirmary and houses rabbits
who are ill or recovering from illness."

sino también su parte espiritual y la colaboración

Twelve months ago Larry was found in a snowstorm in
North Wales laid in the shelter of a hayrack, or what
bit of shelter there was. His finders, Dawn and Alan,
thought he was dead but went to check. Amazingly Larry
was still alive, just. Thanks to their compassion and
determination that Larry was going to live he did.
"There are very few places throughout the world where
farm animals can find sanctuary to be able to live
out their lives in peace, to be treated with
kindness and respect. We watch these animals become
comfortable and confident. We see their characters
develop. We admire their intelligence and the way
they embrace their peaceful surroundings. We watch
them begin to play and finally become content.
They form close companionships and soon recognise
the people who care for them and look after them.
They ask for very little. For us it’s a pleasure and
a privilege to be part of their daily lives.
Freedom Hill Sanctuary is a
small not for profit organisation dedicated to providing
a loving home for neglected and unwanted farm animals.
"We are located in South
Australia, in the Adelaide Hills, with 48 acres of
picturesque hills country. Freedom Hill is the first
sanctuary for farm animals in South Australia.
Our mission at Freedom Hill Sanctuary is to provide a
safe haven for animals that have been rescued from
abuse, exploitation or neglect. We also aim to change
the way people view farm animals and promote, educate
and encourage compassionate cruelty-free living.
Life begins at Freedom Hill for all our rescues and each
and every one will always have a safe, happy and forever
home. We are not open to the public yet but our future
plan is to open the sanctuary for weekend visits and
later school visits."
The exploitation and abuse of animals is a big
problem in Korea, made worse by weak animal
protection enforcement and an uninformed public.
KARA works to educate the public about the ethical
issues surrounding animal protection in Korea.
"Animal Walk Tokyo was formed in 2010 by a small
group of people living in Tokyo with a drive for
helping the animals around us. Each person involved
had a passion for contributing, but not one of us
was able to find information in English on how to do
so without adopting or

"Companion animals are dependent upon their human
being owners to survive. Unfortunately, the same
human being who they rely upon to survive sometimes
ends up letting them down. This happens for many
reasons such as an owner not realizing ahead of time
how difficult having a pet can be, or an owner being
forced to relinquish their pet because of financial
reasons or even because the owner is moving to a
place that does not accommodate his or her pet":
There are so many organisations and individuals
helping animals, too many to even think about
including here. It is encouraging from time to time
to look at the dedication, compassion and love for
animals that exists in the world. Yes the cruelty
and abuse is overwhelming in the extreme but there
are pockets of resistance, places of hope and refuge
for animals and many people campaigning to bring
about change for the other beings with whom we share
“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us
the ‘Universe’, a part limited in time and space. He
experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as
something separate from the rest – a kind of optical
delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a
kind of prison for us, restricting us to our
personal desires and to affection for a few persons
nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves
from this prison by widening our circle of
compassion to embrace all living creatures and the
whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to
achieve this completely, but the striving for such
achievement is in itself a part of the liberation
and a foundation for inner security.” Albert
