Remember to do unto animals…

As animal lovers, we can always do and be more for those who depend on us. When we make changes in our lives — whether big or small — that move us toward seeking compassion for others, we are moving in the right direction. I believe anything is possible and change can happen in the world when we as individuals live by our beliefs and let kindness be our inspiration. Remember to Do Unto Animals when you’re Doing Unto Others! I’ve learned more often than not, the rescued animal is the human, and the rescuer usually has four legs (or sometimes 3, or wings, or fins…you get the picture).

We invite you to consider a whole-food, plant-based diet for your health, for animals, and for the environment.
