Animal Rights Online - 1998-2005
Hello, my name is Susan Roghair, and I am the President of
Animal Rights Online. Thank you so much for visiting our web site, which
contains the archive of all our past newsletters.
We have decided to devote our spare time to help the lives
of animals. The animals are very dear to our hearts, and it saddens us
whenever we learn of any cruelty, exploitation, and abuse toward them.
Animals are suffering every minute, every day...
in unnecessary laboratory experiments, where they endure
physical and/or psychological pain before they are "sacrificed." Other
"lab animals" are used in the testing of toxic chemicals, cosmetics, and
almost every kind of household product.
for "entertainment purposes" in rodeos and circuses,
during the production of motion pictures, and in poorly designed zoos
and aquariums. Animals are subject to dismemberment and death in staged
dogfights and cockfights.
on "factory farms", where their short lives are spent in
unnatural, confined quarters. These animals are slaughtered and
butchered in assembly-line fashion. Then they are eaten.
for "sport" and for the fashion/clothing industries...
Many wild animals are hunted and killed. Others die agonizing deaths in
steel jaw leghold traps so people can wear their skins for clothes.
close to our homes... even companion animals, our pets,
suffer abuse. Allowing pets to overpopulate leads to starvation on the
streets or euthanasia in the pound. Unwanted or lost animals may end up
on the laboratory table.
We need to show respect and to be compassionate to all
beings. Like us, animals deserve fair treatment.
How can we help?
We have many back issues of our Animal Writes newsletters
available for viewing on our
Newsletters page. Please take some time to
check these pages out. Thanks!
Effective autumn 2005, Animal Rights Online stopped the publication of its
newsletters; however, we have archived everything on this web site. It appears that because of increased spam filtering, AOL can
no longer handle our bulk mailings. Though what I have been sending out
for almost 10 years is NOT spam, I've been told that if any of the
recipients decide to report it as spam, instead of unsubscribing, then it
is a 'terms of service' violation. We regret that we are no longer
publishing our newsletters for this reason.
We have disbanded our staff, who will continue to be
active in animal causes, and though the
[email protected] email address
is still active, we no longer have an email staff to answer animal related
Thank you for your interest in Animal Rights Online and
for all you do to help animals.
