It is my lifelong mission to save and protect animals. This started years ago when I worked with stray animals in shelters in rural Georgia (USA). Through this experience I began to understand how deep and spread the exploitation and suffering of animals is. I also learned how important organizations and individuals are who are committed to stop the unnecessary suffering of all these animals. The witness of this suffering has raised awareness in me that animals have feelings and should be treated with dignity and respect and allowed to live autonomously from human interference.
