Shar­ing an­i­mals’ pain

Animal Scene - - ADVOCATE -

It was hard for me to cope dur­ing the first few months of be­ing a ve­gan, es­pe­cially when I be­came an an­i­mal rights ad­vo­cate and saw up-close how in­hu­manely an­i­mals were treated. De­spite all I wit­nessed and ex­pe­ri­enced, I even­tu­ally learned to cope with the help of all an­i­mals.

An­i­mals that find free­dom or live in an an­i­mal sanc­tu­ary, in­stead of in cap­tiv­ity, bring me joy. They give me hope that some­day, all cages will be empty; that we will learn to re­spect all be­ings. See­ing an­i­mals in their nat­u­ral habi­tat also keeps me calm, know­ing that they’re with their fam­ily, liv­ing their lives to the fullest, and are not be­ing ex­ploited or harmed by hu­mans.
