Letters and Responses
I heard someone on the radio last night (channel 910 or 960) talking about All-Creatures website.
I worked in The Animal Rights Movement at the beginning in the mid eighties.
I wanted change, NOW! I wanted free spay and neuter and was fought all the way about it. It eventually was realized that free spay and neuter was, right. years later.
I believe that the schools and what they teach are a must to teach to respect for animals and to stop the horrible suffering that humans inflict on animals.
I am a believer in Jesus and I believe there will be NO animals in Hell ONLY humans. I also wanted to sue for emotional pain and suffering all the businesses that thrive on the sadness and pain of animals. I have wondered, "Why, do I, have to suffer, as well as the animals?" I cry for them and pray. We people who are sensitive to the suffering and plight of the creatures, shouldn't have to endure sadness, hopelessness, either.
I have loved ALL animals all my life. I have NEVER met a animal that I felt didn't deserve respect and help and compassion. This sense has been with me ever since I was a small child. In fact it's pretty safe to say I was born with it, since my Father was sensitive in the very same way. He cared for every animal. I got it from him.
So, life's been very tough at times throughout my life for I can feel their discomfort and pain, within my own senses, and it really hurts. What horror, it must be for them!
I'm hopeful that I can be of use to the Animals through the organization and the people who are in it.

Every day we hear from people who feel the same way that you do, but your idea of suing the animal exploitation industries for mental anguish is a novel one, and very intriguing.
