Hi

Are you an animal lover - do you cringe when you hear of animals being mistreated?

Do you donate to any animal charities?

I give £10.00 per month to the RSPCA here in the UK - do you think it's a worthy cause ?

Guess I'm a softie but I have the highest respect for our feathered/four legged friends etc - and you ???

Regards

Claire

I love animals and I hate to see other animals being mistreated. However, I'm not one of those PETA crazies that protests meat. I love my steak, haha. I think if it benefits humans then some animals have to die, but not always in a tortuous manner.

I have three dogs and a cat.

I've had 4 other dogs, two hamsters, two birds, and fish that have passed away over the years.

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

Depends what you mean by "animal lover"


If you are talking bestiality that's illegal in this country - not that it matters to me , I may have Scottish parents but sheep have never really done it for me .

If you are asking whether I make love like a wild creature I can neither confirm nor deny .... ( though my partner has told me I have a tendency to growl while we are 'at it' )

If you are talking about whether my eating habits are carnivorous or vegetarian I am definitely the former ( or more accurately omnivorous ) - especially since there is wild game food everywhere at the moment and I love venison/boar/hare ..... etc


If you are talking about whether I have any four legged family members - oh yes , her name is Maggie and she is just beautiful

I'm with the Kiwi on this one. The term "animal lover" just reminds me of Gkirk. I like animals. Here's a photo of the family dog, and it's obvious that she likes animals too!

I love animals especially dogs.

I don't agree with hunting, especially bear hunting like we just had here in New Jersey.

PetsMart have a scheme where you can add $1 at checkout to help mistreated animals, that's how I usually donate.

I love cats. I run a sort of unofficial cat sanctuary at my home. Not having any dogs, a few wild and stray cats moved into my yard about two years ago. Keeping them all fed and keeping them healthy costs me a heck of a lot of money, but knowing that I am making a difference in the life of those poor creatures that would otherwise have had to fend for themselves on the street makes it worthwhile.

Euclid, that is very cool.

I have volunteered with a cat rescue group for ten years now. We also donate to this same group and after Katrina I donated to Noah's Wish.

I do not like knowing what meat is. I remember how horrified I was when I first figured it out. I try to buy organic free-range products. There was an interview with a farmer here who raised cattle. The cattle were allowed to roam, were fed top feed, and no antibiotics, stimulants, etc. The farmer said "they have only one bad day in their lives" and that got me. If we are going to use animal products, that is how it should be.

I try not to wear leather, and I am absolutely anti-fur. I won't wear faux because you don't know that it is actually faux and I also think it supports a fur culture.



But that was when I ruled the world

Except for the fact that animals pee on the floor, they are more loving than humans. Well, as I think about it, I know many people who miss the toilet bowl and hit the floor anyway, so yes, animals are definitely better than humans.

I donate 8 hours per month, minimum, to the The Cleveland Animal Protective League as a veterinary support associate. Basically that means I run back and forth between the two surgical tables for four hours each Friday. I clean and prep one animal, sanitize the other table, clean and prep another animal, sanitize the other table... If I have time, I am also trained to give shots, implant microchips and trim nails; when necessary, the vet instructs me on how to administer isoflurane anesthesia.

I don't have any money, but I have time - so that's what I give.
