Give animals a fighting chance. ''The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.'' Charles Darwin.

Every year thousands of animals are tortured and mistreated in the UK alone. Animals are dragged into abetoirs to their death. Often with no pain relief these terrified animals have thier throats slit. Some chickens have their legs removed while still alive while others are confined to a barn in which they never see the light of day. Lambs are killed as early as 6 weeks old to produce 'tender' meat. Approximately 10,000 ex-racing greyhounds are 'unaccounted' for each year, most are less than five years old. Many of these dogs are disposed of by bolt gun.The list goes on.........

Where is the compassion? Where is the humanity?

We all know that as humans we have 'human rights', so where are the animals rights? It seems that in today's day and age that all animals are is £££££'s. Chickens are kept in their thousands in barns to boost profits. Sheep are breed to have more skin so they have more wool. Badger's are 'culled' so that farmers make more profit from their cows. There must be a point at which we say these animals have a right to a decent life!

''In lordly London, a proudly moral statue stands on Park Lane. It honors animals that “served” during the war, boldly telling us They Had No Choice. There is no statue that states: ANIMALS IN ABATTOIRS – THEY HAVE NO CHOICE.'' Morrissey 16.11.2013.

How can we honour animals in war then treat other animals with such disrespect? I call for animals welfare to be revolutionised. You should treat an animal as you would want to be treated.

Please be aware of what you are buying and what that animal has had to suffer for you. The video below is in reference to UGG boots. They are very famous and made from wool that is attached to skin. So the outside of the boot is sheep's skin. This is also the case with many other products and foods. To do this we must open our eyes to what is all around us.

"The brute animals have all the same sensations of pain as human beings, and consequently endure as much pain when their body is hurt; but in their case the cruelty of torment is greater, because they have no mind to bear them up against their sufferings, and no hope to look forward to when enduring the last extreme pain." Thomas Chalmers
