Religious/Spiritual Compassion for Animals - Organization Links

Listed below are links to organizations and individuals who are dedicated to promoting and re-establishing compassion in society and religion. Our efforts are based upon sound Biblical teachings, many of which have been glossed over throughout the years. Far too many religious / spiritual leaders and their congregations have lost their discernment of God's compassionate intent toward all of creation, including people, animals and the environment.

Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals
The Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals is a UK based Christian organization. Our  main aim is to raise awareness of animal welfare issues within the Anglican Church and the wider Christian community. We are ecumenical and welcome all Christian denominations as members and supporters.

Animal Chaplain
The vast majority of the work I do involves supporting individuals and their animal companion(s) through times of transition. There are a variety of ways I can support you.

Animal Interfaith Alliance
The Animal Interfaith Alliance (AIA) is a unique alliance of faith based, animal advocacy organisations which represents all the major faiths. It speaks out on the moral treatment of animals by drawing on the combined wisdom of all faiths, and it promotes social harmony by bringing the faith groups together on an issue they all share a concern for. AIA’s activities include animal advocacy and education. We believe in ahimsa – a vegan lifestyle which does not harm others.

Arihanta Institute
Arihanta Institute’s mission is to build a world-class online institution for deeper learning of the Jain tradition, its principles, and how these principles apply to daily life for the benefit and well-being of individuals and society in light of today’s most pressing concerns.

Catholic Action for Animals
Catholic Action for Animals campaigns for the Catholic Church to bring animals onto their agenda. Our mission statement is “Call on the Catholic Church to do more for Animals”. We have an online petition for all to sign asking the UK bishops to set up a Committee on animals alongside their Committee on the Environment. We believe that focusing on the bishops is most important in bringing change, and so we encourage Catholics to lobby their bishops.

Christian Vegetarians and Vegans UK (formerly CVA UK)
CVVUK supporters are encouraged to promote the benefits of a vegetarian/vegan diet within the church and in their dealings with other Christians. A vegetarian/vegan diet dramatically reduces cruelty and violence towards God's creatures but also reduces the disastrous effects a carnivorous diet is having on the environment. A vegetarian/vegan diet will also release food for the hungry (reducing the threat of future conflicts) and improve the health of our bodies, the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Peace to All Beings
This is a place to imagine, dream, pray, and believe that we human beings can awaken to our higher consciousness, embrace a new paradigm of living in harmony, rather than in fear and domination and become "Homo Ahimsa," my term for the new nonviolent and kindhuman that we can become. This is a place to bear witness to the violence around us and at the same time hold fast to the bold vision of a world at peace, not only for people, but for all life.

PETA Lambs
Jesus' message is one of love and compassion, yet there is nothing loving or compassionate about factory farms and slaughterhouses, where billions of animals live miserable lives and die violent, bloody deaths.

Post Animal Use World PAUW
A beautiful world begins with a beautiful vision. The Post-Animal-Use World (PAUW) Project offers a way for us to share our ideas of what could be. Please share your vision with us and maybe, with the power of our individual minds, we can create a collective vision of a better future for all.

Shepherding All God's Creatures
We are Disciples of Jesus who love His animal kingdom! I, Kathy, started a Spiritual venture a few years ago that has led me to this blog endeavor, when one day I was awakened to the industrialization and incorporating of animals into factory settings. Animals today are exploited on every level by man: factory farms, vivisection, fur farms, puppy mills, canned hunting and hunting in general as a sport, animals in entertainment, and others.

Silent Communion
Silent Communion is the precept that all of God's creation is perfect (by His design), and that in being perfectly created by Him, He excludes no life from the ability to commune with Him. Thus, Silent Communion represents not a communion in silence, but a communion that is silent to mankind but nevertheless exists fully in forms that we cannot understand.

Society of Ethical and Religious Vegetarians (SERV)
SERV is an interfaith effort to gain a more humane, just, peaceful, and environmentally sustainable world. We believe that applying spiritual values to scientific knowledge encourages plant-based diets, with major benefits for humans, animals, and the environment. We wish to respectfully make religious communities aware that the realities of animal-based diets and agriculture are inconsistent with basic religious teachings, such as those to treat animals with compassion, preserve our health, protect the environment, conserve natural resources, reduce hunger, and pursue peace and nonviolence.

The Vegan Muslim Initiative
The Vegan Muslim Initiative was founded by two vegan Muslims, Sammer Hakim and Elysia Ward out of Australia and Canada respectively. After crossing paths in late 2015 via our first Facebook group and sharing a passion for health and the environment, we determined that if Muslims are going to be relevant and positive contributors to our planet’s future, then there must be a major paradigm shift in how we view and approach food. We seek to educate our fellow men and women alike and encourage them to take the compassionate road, towards a better future for all.
