To make a positive change in the world TODAY, for a better tomorrow. I've only recently gotten a better understanding of the HORRIBLE conditions that many animals endure each and everyday. Whether it be a household pet that's being abused or a research lab, it's all WRONG. I've seen some of the BEST animal conditions and some of the worst, I've cried many tears from the stories I've read and the pictures I've seen, I've seen dogs show compassion much greater than man, and I've seen man show meanness much greater than ANY animal. Dogs aren't born mean, nor do they start out that way. Animals have undying love and devotion, if only humans could show so much compassion. I've gone without so others could have, I've read countless books and done research as to educate myself on the world around me. I'm not a rescuer or a shelter worker, but these people are the "angels" on this earth and have the MOST fulfilling life anyone can ask for. I truly believe these are the people that make this world a better place for everyone. So with shelter workers and rescuers (the leaders of the crusade) and the countless other animal lovers, such as myself, change can and will take place. With knowledge and education the possibilities are endless.
