Animals should be treated like any other living thing, with respect and kindness. Jack

I agree, is not fair to use animals to test cosmetics, or use the fur, but I think youre totally biased on what to target; how can you show images of milking cows and totally ignore the halal practises? You target a tiger in a petrol station and ignore the HUNDREDS of dogs poisoned or kicked to death in muslims neighbourhoods, not only in America but in all the world. Now I expect a video explaining about your fundation, not an ego trip of this girl showing "How much she does". We all had dogs and went to petting zoos, c'mon!! Besides she is so plastic!!! With what she spend in that nose job she could had saved some orangutans. Activism is not only to show youreself in scanty clothes, there is a more professional way of doing things.

Absolutely! Many "people abusers" started out with abusing animals. Fortunately today we have organizations who speak out and try to protect animals. The ALDF does a wonderful job for the animals and many of us are extremely grateful for the help they have given to Tony the Tiger. Because of the efforts of ALDF Tony will be out of his cage in December and relocated to a sanctuary where he can live out his senior years with dignity. Thank you for all the hard work you have done on Tony's behalf.

I always believed that if a Person is capable of harming an Animal in any way then they are capable of harming any living thing. I guess I believe honestly that if a Person does not have any feelings for Animals ~there is something missing in their souls. The ALDF Team is one of the Most Wonderful Organizations, and the Work that you do for all those Countless Voiceless that were never Heard before you Stepped into Their Lives is the Most Priceless Gift you are Giving Each and Every One of them. I have Experienced Personally the Wonderful Work that you are doing Since I became involved in the FREEDOM for Tony the Tiger, and I would like to thank you from the bottom of my Heart for what you are doing to help him ~and for including Tony in your Video. Thank you Lisa Franzetta and the Rest of the ALDF Team for all that you do!

Of course! Terrorists exercise with "being cruel to animals" and later they are cruel to people. I say the way somebody treats an animal IS the way he treats you/people.

I agree 100% with the video and than some. I can not thank the ALDF enough for all they do for all the worlds precious animals. I will always stand with you. I can't put into words my utmost thanks for all you have done and are doing to help Tony the Tiger from Louisiana. You have stood by him and are staying by him. THANK YOU so much.

Not only does the way we treat animals affect how we treat others, but I believe we can learn so much from the unconditional love, friendship, companionship and trust we recieve from animals. This video was very moving and I appreciate Tony The Truck Stop Tiger being included. ALDF has been diligent in advocating for Tony. The vital work of The Animal Legal Defense Fund ensures that animals and their rights will be defended, and laws to protect them will be enforced.

Absolutely! Here are a few quotes: To err is human; to forgive is equine. Wherever man has left his footprint in the long ascent from barbarism to civilization, we will find the hoof print of the horse beside it. -- John Moore "If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who deal likewise with their fellow men." ~~unknown "The question is not, can they reason nor, can they talk? But, can they suffer?" ~Jeremy Bentham "Animals come into our lives as gifts from God, for companionship, to teach us and to heal us.” They deserve our very best efforts in caring for them” ~ Dr. Ihor Basko, DVM Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate. - Sigmund Freud Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened. -Anatole French "Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight." ~~Albert Schweitzer “The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity.” ~ George Bernard Shaw

Yes, I live in Tasmania Australia - where there are beautiful and unique mammals - some - monotremes - such as the platypus - lay eggs and still suckle their young, the marsupials, which give birth to very small babies which then find the mother's pouch and attach themselves to a milk gland in the pouch until they are old enough to start emerging and eating grass. I live in the country now, and treasure the immensely beautiful wildlife, the night and day birds (a tawny frogmouth hunts from lookout positions around my garden - eg the clothesline, a fencepost). When I drive home from my job in the nearest city, I drive at a speed at which I can see the animals up ahead starting to cross the road, and pull over if impatient drivers are behind me. I feel immense sadness at the beautiful creatures killed as they try to cross the road, bewildered by the speed and noise. I can feel the anger, impatience and indifference of the drivers as they tailgate me. I am going at a reasonable speed for the wet winding country road. Can we imagine what it is like for a small bandicoot, trying to find safety, and being mowed down by lethal metal behemoths. However, the beautiful state is sadly divided between the people who are intent on destroying the once beautiful forests, and kill the wildlife with guns, 1080 poison, even killing 100,000 possums a year or more for their beautiful fur and skins and meat, which they sell to Asia. This is because the animals have the temerity to eat a little grass which 'belongs' to the cattle, or the wild animals eat the new plantation seedlings. Having cut down many of the magnificent forests, one species plantations have sprung out, killing all diversity. The other group of people treasure the forest that is remaining, love and protect the wildlife and feel great sorrow when they hear the first kind of people refer to the wildlife as 'vermin', or when they see another truckload of trees going to be turned into chips for paper overseas. The tide is turning here now, and the world is changing. Love is changing us heart by heart. Thank you everyone for caring.
