“The Earth does not belong to man; Man belongs to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”—Chief Seattle

The medical argument for animal testing doesn’t stand up. Even if it did, I don’t think we should kill other species. We think we’re so much better; I’m not sure we are. I tell people, We’ve beaten into submission every animal on the face of the Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going on between the species. Couldn’t we be generous? I really do think it’s time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them. I think we’ve got to show that we’re kind.  — Paul McCartney

Bile farming in Asia is still a huge problem and there are more than 12,000 bears being held in bile farms. 
Bears are kept in tiny cages with barely enough room to turn around and bile is extracted from an open wound in their chests. This causes the bears a great deal of distress and pain and many don’t even know how to walk.
Anyone who’s spoken to me before will know how passionate I am about ending the suffering of bears in Asia particularly - They’re at such a disadvantage and there’s still so much we don’t know about the shy Sun Bears. WSPA and Free the Bears do incredible work on the ground in Cambodia and Laos, rescuing, rehabilitating and even releasing Sun bears, Sloth bears, Asiatic black bears and Moon bears.

In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people.  — Ruth Harrison, author of Animal Machines

Acid Burned Dog Delivers 8 Puppies: all to die
Humble, Texas: Some monster burned this beautiful dog with acid. Mamasita wound up at the Humble Animal Control and delivered eight beautiful puppies. She is a great mom, trying to keep her babies safe. Sadly, the Humble Animal Control does not adopt out pit bulls. Humble is located a few miles north of Houston, Texas.
This tiny shelter does not have resources and backing, but tries very hard for the animals in their care. A dedicated officer built Mamasita a whelping box for her puppies.
The only chance Mamasita and her puppies have is to be pulled by a rescue group. Please share Mamasita’s story in hopes that she and her family can be rescued.

Zoos are becoming facsimiles - or perhaps caricatures -  of how animals once were in their natural habitat.  If the right policies toward nature were pursued,  we would need no zoos at all.  ~Michael J. Fox
