Twyla Francois has launched a new website, where she is selling copies of her fantastic artwork, that advocates for animals. Check it out. Extremely thought-provoking, beautiful work. Good luck w/it Twyla, and thanks for all that you do for animals!
New Zealand's just become the first country in Australasia to make it illegal for manufacturers to test cosmetic ingredients or finished cosmetic products on animals. (Thanks Donna McMillan for posting)
A lot of people were real happy about the NDP win this week in Alberta. Fair enough. But I was bothered that this image kept circulating on Facebook. Why?
ere's the thing...We need to try to stop using animals as objects of humour, otherwise, we are just perpetuating old ways of thinking and basically sanctioning it for others, and thereby remain "part of the problem". Any chance we can get, let's try to lend animals dignity instead of using them for ridicule. I'm all for humour, but I like the gentle, kind, intelligent stuff myself...
