WELCOME TO THE ANIMAL ACTION ALERTS GROUP!

THE RESERVOIR IS ALWAYS FULL !
August 20th, 2009

Susan Trout, Program Assistant for the organization Born Free USA united with Animal Protection Institute, wrote the following post on the Born Free USA Blog.

Animal activists are a special breed. We are people motivated by a strong desire to defend the helpless. We are exposed to animal issues on many levels — be they direct or indirect. Whether they are escapes of exotic wild creatures or cases of gut-wrenching animal cruelty and neglect — they frequently elicit a wide range of reactions from the general public.

Incidents that would generally have been ignored by media in years past are now making the headlines — often generating a huge public outcry. Despite the outpouring of sympathy and concern for animals, there are still the stubborn few who mistakenly believe that such care and concern is misplaced. Shocking, but true. I consistently read comments from those who begrudge kind and sympathetic expression and monetary donations to help animals in need. They reason that compassion and monetary support should go to help people — first. If we followed their logic, animals would be completely ignored and never receive the kindness and help they deserve.

Compassion isn’t a reservoir that runs the risk of being drained. Compassion is one of the purest feelings humans possess and demonstrating compassion for a voiceless animal doesn’t prevent us from caring about human beings. To the contrary, those who care about animals also nurture a sincere regard for humanity. According to fellow animal activist, Robin Thunderchild, compassion isn’t genuine if it excludes.

We are inspired by the compassion and generosity of our supporters. If you’ve not yet become a member and rallied around one of our important campaigns, we invite you to come on board. Help us to help animals!

HOW TO START A DISCUSSION:

Please feel free to START A DISCUSSION and to share your favorite animal action alerts with the rest of the group.

Simply click on START A DISCUSSION, add a title and your name in the subject header, and then share your own story and others can respond to it from there. They can also START A DISCUSSION of their own as well, and share their own experiences as well.

Please START A DISCUSSION of your own if you wish to ADD a an animal related cause to the group, rather than adding it on to another person's "cause" page comments. Each "cause" should be posted on it's own discussion thread, where others can respond to it directly from there on its own comment board.
