I would like to learn more about what I can do to reduce the abuse suffered by animals and also be given the opportunity to participate in activities that educate the public about the abuses that exist and the alternative choices available to prevent those abuses.
It is unbearable to me to see the pain and suffering animals endure in factory farm situations, gestation crates, etc. and the wrongful use of animals for entertainment.
I think education is the key. I would love to see activities that educate people (especially children) about the rights of animals and that instill a life-long appreciation for all animals. I would also like to lobby for harsher punishment for those who abuse animals and laws that protect pets and wildlife from the consequences they suffer due to the ignorance and callous acts of humans.
I'm a Colorado native with an undeniable passion for animals and I want to be involved in helping prevent the abuses inflicted upon those without a voice.
