This news came to me as a message from a Care 2 friend - with an acknowledgement from 'Advocate' that this outcome is down to her/you and all her/your hard work. It seemed only right to therefore take the opportunity to share it here and to thank you for all you have done to reach this goal and succeed. Brilliant! Thank you also, to all our friends on Facebook, Twitter, Google, Pinterest, Tumblr, Animal Welfare and Social Change and ALL the other sites involved in an intense daily battle on behalf of the voiceless. Thank you to Advocate and again, to ALL the other charities and organizations, working tirelessly to improve and change the world for the most unfortunate beings forced to share our planet in ways that nature, never intended.
