Catskill Animal Sanctuary

I finally made it to the Catskill Animal Sanctuary… and was greeted up the road by this guy! My Second Child. I thought the rooster’s staff was joking when she introduced him, but that is indeed his name. Very boisterous, that fella. In case you couldn’t make it, you can live vicariously through me for […]

Do I have your attention? O-Kay. As you may know, there is currently a Bill being considered in the Senate dubbed the “Ag Gag” Bill (Senate Bill S05172). I’ve already been contacted by some, who called their representatives after receiving notice of the Bill. Thank you! Today I received a call and in conversation was […]

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius released the 12th Report on Carcinogens on June 10, 2011. In that report, it reveals formaldehyde as a known or is reasonably anticipated to cause cancer in humans. Finally, it’s in writing. The problem is, it’s also in hundreds, of products we each come in […]

Spinning Mind

Today is a beautiful, sunny and warm day. A soft breeze touches my skin, and Frank trots happily along as we walk for the second time already today. I am pleased by watching my constant companion in his ignorance and I recognize that thankfully, for the first time today, my mind is not spinning. As time ticks […]

I overheard part of a conversation between a couple attending the Animal Rights Day in NYC, and a couple of individuals from FAUNNJ – the organization that tabled next to Sound Earth. I was impressed with the grace and loving response this group gave to the man when he divulged he owned a leather couch. […]

Beagles are often the “preferred species [where large mammals are used for animal testing], because they are so forgiving”, states a lab worker in the video below (Beagle Freedom Project). Even with their forgiving nature, however, these victims are devocalized so as not to hassle the lab workers. But I digress… The household cleaning product […]

Frank in the Big City

What an event. Great turn out, and very inspiring to share the day with so many like minded people. Check out our photos on FaceBook. More coming soon!

Animal Rights Day

Today I joined together with several hundred fellow animal advocates and concerned citizens to acknowledge the first annual Animal Rights Day in New York City. I felt like I was part of the pack. I didn’t have to explain myself, or guard my language. There was no double and triple checking my food to make […]
