I am a member of the ASPCA, have been for around 2 yrs. they are simply
awesome! I believe we all should be involved somehow with them! (maybe in our own areas also), but I have to tell you what really made me realize I was
an animal activist, I was pregant with my son, 10 yrs. ago, when I saw something on TV, they were having dogs, chase pigs around a pen, and the dogs ended up killing the pigs! And to top it off, people were there spectating!
I was soooooo upset, I didn't know I cared about a pig soooo much!! I called my husband at work crying and just beside myself. after he calmed me down, I started doing research. And from that show, they also showed
animals from the circus, Elephants to be exact! OMG! How they beat them, to teach them to perform for our pleasure, I never really thought about it ,
but that just enraged me! I then joined PAWS- performing animal welfare society! They rescue all zoo and circus animals that are retired or even take them out of abusive situations!!! Thanks! Monique
