  1. Whatcha Got Cookin'?
    I thought it would be interesting to see who of us is a vegetarian, vegan or carnivore? Also I wondered about those of us who don't eat meat, is the reason animal welfare or something else? I eat meat but would like to be a vegetarian. I've done few stints but there's a few things I struggle...

  5. General Animal Discussion
    Hi all, I'm new to this site but have been involved in animal rescue for years now, and thought it would be fun to share some rescue stories. If you've been involved in any kind of animal protection efforts (maybe you've even tried some of the ideas on my animal protection page...!), you know...
  6. Animal Welfare & Legal Issues
    http://www.caringconsumer.com/products_welchs.asp Thought this was interesting as I never had any idea a few of these companies used live animal testing for products. Was surprising as I use alot of them including the Noni Juice to include giving to some of my babies when they are ill. Guess...

  10. Dogs
    "When I was a puppy, I entertained you with my antics and made you laugh. You called me your child and despite a number of chewed shoes and a couple of murdered throw pillows, I became your best friend. Whenever I was "bad," you'd shake your finger at me and ask "How could you?"-- but then...
  11. Animal Welfare & Legal Issues
    I was watching the news today, they were doing a report on bird flu and filming from Turkey. People were catching chickens etc and putting them all together into plastic bags. I just wondered if anyone else has seen this and what you thought? Personally I think they're evil and should be...

  15. General Animal Discussion
    I apologize for such a long posting, but I think this is pretty important... Many pet owners have "micro-chipped" their pets. What they may not know is that a "microchip controversy" has entered Congress as an amendment to the House's agriculture appropriations bill for 2006. Most of the chips...
  16. Animal Welfare & Legal Issues
    The story is at the end of these links. There is no explicit graphic violence shown, but the nature of what you will read or hear (unweaned puppies, small dogs, leashed dogs, and a dogs next to their owners being shot) is not suitable for children (in fact it turned my stomach, and I'm 50)...
