I care very deeply about the animals and I get so depressed when I here of some hardship or horrible situation that has happened. It pains to read all these horrible stories..but I like to think that just by reading them and telling people about what is going on, that I am making a difference. :)
Right now I inform my friends and family of things going on in the world, and I sign and send out petitions to people. When I'm older I will actually start donating money to the different organizations once I have more. Currently I am an online member of the WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals) which is a great organization and I help by signing and sending their petitions to my friends and family. Also in my local area I went door to door raising money for the new humane society building that is being built for the animals in my city. :)
The one thing I hate more than animals being mistreated in any way..is when people do such horrible things and are not punished justly. I've always believed that anyone who hurts an animal, or makes their lives miserable should suffer aswell, or at least be put in jail for a VERY long time. I hope the governments around the world start taking things more seriously.
I very much would like to be a vegetarian..but unfortunately I eat meat to often and I don't like many vegetables. I used to like cauliflower more than candy when I was younger..I could totally live off of just that! :P ...Maybe. A d for some reason..I kinda feel like emotionally connected to lobsters. :S I will NOT eat them..and it really bothers me when people do.
I will eat the basic meats..but not lamb, frog, or lobster. Or any other delicacy's from other countries such as shark, dog..etc. I make sure any makeup and products I buy are not tested on animals.
What Gives Me Hope
This website and others like it..knowing there's so many people out there who really do care just as much as I do. :)
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
Make the laws and punishments stricter on any form of animal cruelty.
What/who changed my life and why
Hmm.. Well this big concern about the animals really first started when I saw a commercial asking for donations to help save the bears.. The little cubs had ropes through their noses..and they were tied to ropes and forced to dance. :( The commerical also talked of bear baiting. For those of you who don't know, bear baiting is a horrific form of enterntainment in..Pakistan I think, in which a bear's claws are removed, it is tied to a post, and forced to defend itself from attacking dogs (that are also mistreated horribly as well) DESPICABLE. Also about five minutes ago I watched the video "Meet your meat" on this website from the PETA group.. It has seriously change the way I think about the animals we eat. I wish I could become a vegetarian.. Once I move out and get my own place I will be for sure. The dairy cows are treated HORRIBLY as well.. but I think milk is just too important..It's sad, but it's true. :(
