They Are Not Our Property

If you have not already done so, please join IDA's "They Are Not Our Property, We Are Not Their Owners" campaign. You can begin by using the word "guardian" in place of "owner" when referring to companion animals. If "owner" must be used, put the word in quotation marks to indicate a negative connotation.

Taking this step will help promote a greater responsibility to and a deeper respect for the animals with whom we share our planet. For more information, please visit:
