Happy World Animal Day folks!
I know I bang on about animals ALL THE TIME lately but it's because a) I love animals and b) they need us to. I'd bang on about you all the time too if I knew you were trapped and were being harmed.
If you have pets, you're already an animal lover otherwise they wouldn't be in your life.
You wouldn't welcome them into your home. You have compassion and a huge love for animals.
But do you love all animals or is it just pets?
Please consider all the animals out there right now who don't get the same love and respect from you
as your pets do.
They may not look the same, feel the same, act the same or have names, but morally they are the same.
They are all babies.
They are all conscious and they all have their own personal experiences.
They all have eyes, lungs, hearts, brains, personalities, emotions and sentience.
They all (every single one of them) want to live their lives and none of them want to be hurt or
chopped up for your dinner, clothing or entertainment.
It's unnecessary and cruel and it doesn't need to come from you.
If you truly love animals like you say you do, then please prove it to them.
Defend them, rescue them or at the very least, protect them.
Luckily, in 2023, we no longer need to pay someone to kill animals for us in a slaughterhouse anymore.
We can be plant-based. We can be healthier, kinder and more compassionate.
We can go to bed at night knowing we haven't hurt any animals today
and we can be better people because of it.
This #WorldAnimalDay, what will YOU do for animals?
