START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
May 25, 2010

I wanted to actually have members discuss stuff instead of just posting their recent petitions and stuff so I started a discussion on why my members love animals.  I think it is a good starting off point for this group to get to know its members and their views and perspectives on animal welfare and animal rights.  Since we are a group discussion is key.  It can allow us to share, learn, inspire, or even debate on topics but I want members to state why they are in this group in the first place.

Thank you
Brittany Valdes-Pages (Group Host)

Hi Brittany, Thanks For the invite. my goal here on care2 has always been the health and welfare of animals, but have recently found myself outraged at government funded Animal Testing Facilities. it has become my goal to Close them down... All of Them....
general Animal abuse is a crime, and can be punishable by a legal law or system. but what about the laws that say its OK to use animals in Cosmetic, Medical & domestic Testing, there have even been monkeys sent into space for animal research.... this is Legal!!
these are the laws i am willing to challenge.

Why do we love animals? They are our brothers and sisters, dear members of our family. They show us the full fascination of what the wonder of life is. They have so much in common with us - and, in other respect, are often so different from us. And we love them like childs, although they are not ours. Now think of an abused child: Who would not feel an extra strong empathy for it?
And how much can animals teach us about ourselves!
Ahhh - did I now explain why I love animals?
No, of course I didn't. I cannot give reasons for love.
Isn't love always its own reason - with nothing above it?

I've always loved animals- cats and dogs-mostly-have a painted turtle too-used to have 2- they fought and bit-sent one to the pond-Animals give me something no human being ever can- unconditional love- except for my princess cat who only wants treats and doesn't like to be petted unless it's on her terms! Thanks for the topic- maybe I'll be here more often. Insomnia rules me- too many day naps-I live like a cat. Sorta love it.Peace to you and Happy Easter Happy Spring
