"Let us remember that we who desire peace on this planet desire it for all animals, not just those of our own species.  Other animals are not inferior, just different from us."  And (one of the five precepts) "I undertake the rule of training to refrain from harming living things."  Also (in the Noble Eightfold Path, part of the Fourth Noble Truth), "Right conduct.  Never kill or harm any living creature."
