Convicted animal killer and torturer adopts new victim? - Examiner.com | Animals R Us | Scoop.it
To this day, Vick has never officially acknowledged or apologized for the horrendous suffering and loss of life he caused the dogs he victimized, only expressing regret at how it affected him and other people who know him. This is like a child abuser and murderer apologizing for disappointing his family and friends, without addressing the evil he perpetrated against the actual victims.

Animal blessing a time for fellowship - Columbia Daily Tribune | Animals R Us | Scoop.it
Whether one is religious or not, we must admit that every creature has the right to be treated respectfully. The Creator of this beautiful world is not indifferent to anything. Humans — at least most — are intellectually superior to animals, so we are required to show them compassion. .

You will spend a lifetime wondering why more people don’t get it.
