Animal Welfare
Animal Rights vs. Animal Welfare, do YOU know the difference?
Animal Rights is different than Animal Welfare
Animal Rights Editorial
National Animal Interest Alliance
American Sporting Dog Alliance
Sportsmans and Animal Owners' Voting Alliance
North Carolina Responsible Animal Owner's Alliance

If Animal Rights groups don't make you seriously ill, you don't have all the facts. There is a huge difference between Animal Welfare (who care about the well being of animals, responsible breeding and responsible pet ownership) and Animal Rights extremists (who are more cruel to animals than anyone they target, in the name of doing right by animals, as they rake in the millions and millions of dollars in profit).

And I'm SO TIRED of well-intentioned, but ill-informed, celebrities and politicians who jump on the Animal Rights band wagon without knowing the facts first, thinking they are doing something good with their power and fame and can maybe sleep a little better at night. They would not sleep if they knew what they were supporting.

So, in my little insignificant corner of the world where I have no power and less fame, this is just one thing I can do. Please take the time to read these and at very least, if they can make you hesistate for a second while you go research the plethora of information out there that substantiates and goes much much further than I can, before you open your wallet and your support Animal Rights groups then, that's fair enough for me.
