For ALL Animals
As we enjoy the festive season and appreciate the comforts we have in our own lives it can be easy to forget that most animals have little to celebrate.
In fact, Christmas is a time when even more animals suffer!
The testing of cosmetics and toiletries which are purchased as gifts.
The turkeys and pigs that are farmed intensively and then slaughtered for 'celebratory feasts'
And the increase in 'dumped pets' as families leave on holidays or when puppies and kittens purchased as Christmas gifts are soon neglected.
There are ways that we can reduce this suffering however, and Christmas is a time when we can spread our message of compassion to others.
Inviting family and friends to an appetizing 'cruelty-free' Christmas feast.
Purchase only gifts that have not caused suffering to animals (such as cruelty-free perfumes and synthetic rather than leather, fur, or wool products).
Help at a local animal shelter when usual staff are away on holidays.
Purchase pro-animal gifts such as t-shirts that spread messages of compassion or books about animal welfare.
Have a safe and compassionate Christmas!
