My friend Kacey Yaurs says "Animals provide love loyalty and companionship. They aren't pets but family." However Imagine you are an animal young or old probably sick,sore all over beaten from head to tail. Why ? Human ignorance for people that believe they are better. Not a good or pleasant feeling is it ? No,then change it stop abusing animals that's how animals feel when you mistreat them. You family worries about you when you are sick right ? Have you already forgotten that animal has a mother that trusted you to take care of her baby !! ? Dogs are very commonly abused. Why? Are they not man's best friend or human's best friend then why aren't we treating them like the are ? Animals cant defend themselves they get old and lose their teeth and sometimes cant even eat or chew. How bout hunting some people think it doesn't count but what if it was you ?

Global meat consumption has increased from under 50 million tons annually to over 200 million tons in the last 50 years.

2. Lower risk of heart disease. Researchers Dr. Dean Ornish and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn have a program that includes a vegetarian diet and is currently one of the few programs that has been proven to reverse heart disease. A vegetarian diet reduces cholesterol.

3. Lower risk of osteoporosis. Studies have shown that too much protein in our diet causes loss of bone calcium. Meat eaters generally get far more protein than they need or can use.

Many people give money to charities believing their money will be used to help people in need. They don't always realize that their money may instead be used to fund testing on animals. While some people believe animal testing is necessary, there are now many humane ways to learn about disease and to test medical treatments, methods that are actually more effective than testing on animals and that do not cause pain and death to innocent creatures.
Here are just a few of the charities that currently fund testing on animals. If you object to testing on animals, let these charities know you cannot support them until they stop harming and killing animals. Find other, kinder charities to support instead.

American Heart Association

The American Heart Association has funded studies to determine the effects of second hand smoke on chickens, forcing the birds to breathe concentrated cigarette smoke for extended periods of time. One has to question the value of such studies, since the harmful effects of second hand smoke on humans have been well established. The American Heart Association has helped fund numerous other cruel studies, including studies...
