Who We Are
Catholic Concern for Animals - USA
We have a new flyer for your use to copy, etc.
2005 sees the launch of the United
States of America branch of Catholic Concern for Animals (CCA).
We are thrilled to have a CCA branch here to promote compassion for all of
God's creatures. Members will continue to receive the wonderful journal,
The Ark three times a year and soon an addition of a USA newsletter
will be included with it. We are also hoping that a Spanish division will
emerge to meet the needs of the Spanish population. Any suggestions and
help will be seriously considered.
The minimal standard of our 'humane' laws for
farm animals, are rarely enforced, and there are no laws at all to protect
billions of poultry (although HSUS is trying to pass them). Matthew
Scully's brilliant book, Dominion: The Power of Man, the Suffering of
Animals, and the Call to Mercy, includes the description of farmed pigs
which would make anyone with a conscience to stop eating pig meat at once.
There is much evidence of 'factory' or intensive farming being harmful not
only to the billions of animals who have to endure lives of desperate
misery, but also to the environment, through erosion and depletion of water,
to human health, and to the economics of the developing world which supplies
grain for our meat-animals rather than feeding their own populations. An
excellent pamphlet written by Fr. John Dear, S.J., Christianity and
Vegetarianism, is available upon request. The least we can do is to
cut down on our consumption of animals, and use only meat and dairy products
that have a humane seal on them. We would do well to consume only the
plant-based diet God created us to have (see Gen. 1:29).
The use of animals for research has been
shown to be largely useless or counterproductive. It is known that medicine
proven safe on animals can cause severe defects in humans. There are
organizations that sponsor state-of-the-art research without the use of
animals. Contact The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine's website
for a list of these organizations and for more information.
Catholic Concern for Animals' illustrated journal, The Ark, is published every four months containing informative articles and features. If you would like a free copy of The Ark and/or our introductory free brochure, please contact Godscre@msn.com
