with all the torture and outrageous abusive procedures you impose on innocent animals, it has been proven over and over again that the results you get are useless. ANIMALS ARE NOT PEOPLE. when will you idiots admit this, and leave the animals out of it? vivisection is the most cruel, horrifying and INCONCLUSIVE practice that is still going on. FOR WHAT? to fill your pockets with grants from other idiots. this is truly disgusting and unacceptable.

The Spanish will feel right at home with more 'legal' reasons to abuse and torture animals, even thought its been proven time and time again that these useless experiments don't work.

"I despise and abhor the pleas on behalf of that infamous practice, vivisection... I would rather submit to the worst of deaths, so far as pain goes, than have a single dog or cat tortured to death on the pretense of sparing me a twinge or two."

signed and noted, thankyou.

Please don't lump all Spanish together in this. I have spent a lot of time there and although I have often been horrified by the attitude of some people regarding animal treatment (as I have been in many countries, including my own) it is far from all of them. All kinds of animal abuse happens everywhere, there will, sadly, always be people who see no problem, but there are always people ready to speak out against it. Change is in the air in Spain. I see much more awareness of animal welfare issues coming from the younger generations. They need support, not abuse. By all means scream abuse at the perpetrators and supporters of brutal treatment of animals, I will be there screaming with you, but never assume it is everyone

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Xenia because you have done so within the last week.
