From beasts we scorn as soulless,
In forest, field and den,
The cry goes up to witness
The soullessness of men.
~M. Frida Hartley
Hello and welcome!
My name is Barbara and for as long as I can remember, I’ve loved and have been concerned about all creatures as well as distressed by their often callous treatment by humans.
I created this blog as a way to reach people’s hearts and minds about the many forms of man’s mistreatment of animals and the ways in which we can individually and collectively change the current paradigm of exploitation and cruelty to one of compassion and mercy.
This site isn’t affiliated with the excellent organization called Mercy for Animals, but I wholeheartedly recommend you visit them and lend your support to their very powerful voice for the animals.
I hope to inspire people to take a closer look at the animals we make use of yet never think about or get to know and to begin to see our embedded cultural ideas about how some animals matter and others don’t.
Here you’ll find links to exceptionally powerful animal advocate speakers, inspirational stories of epiphanies and transformations, and advice on how to easily live a life that seeks to avoid animal suffering as much as possible.
Of course, sometimes enjoying the sweetness and playfulness of animals, not to mention their badass behaviors and attitudes, is a must–so for that I’ve created a page devoted specifically to awesome videos meant to make you laugh, smile, or simply say, “awwwww”. 🙂
Thank you for caring!
