Animals Make Us Human

...because they teach us Compassion. Thanks to (Temple Grandin). Loving a pet can open one’s heart to the fuller meaning of responsible love. Why should we be ashamed of how brazenly we hurt animals and wipe whole kinds off the face of the earth? Because we know what it means to love an animal. We know that love calls us to caretaking and reciprocal respect. Cruelty to animals is thus a betrayal of love and a hypocrisy not worthy of us as moral beings. Why shouldn't even the least of creatures enjoy the golden rule?

PIN NOW! TEACHERS, CONTACT US TO PRESENT THIS PROGRAM AT YOUR SCHOOL! #DFWRescueMe, a Dallas-based 501(c)(3) rescue organization, launched Voices for Justice after a four-month-old pit bull puppy was found having suffered terrible abuse. The puppy, named Justice by those who rescued and tried valiantly to save him, did not survive.* But his legacy lives on with a program that educates children about the proper treatment of animals in an effort to prevent future abuse.
