Animal Rights & Animal Welfare - Know the Difference.
There is a big difference between Animal Rights & Animal Welfare & it needs to be clarified.
Animal Welfare - Animal Welfare includes all animals, whether used for food, companionship, or sport. It is based on the principle of ownership of animals. It reflects a common sense approach that animals should be treated well & that animal cruelty is wrong. Animal welfare standards & guidelines for animal use & management are based on sound veterinary & animal husbandry experience, research & practices.
Animal Rights - Animal Rights advocates & their groups believe in the ideology that there is no distinction between animals & humans. They view animal ownership as exploitation & slavery. The true goal of Animal Rights Groups is to work for legislation & humane care only until all animals are no longer owned or utilized by human beings.
Lately we have been accused of being against the proper care & husbandry of animals. This has happened because over the years we have been working hard to shed light on Extremist Animal Rights Groups. We have exposed their activities & their agenda.
Taking a stand against Animal Rights in no way means that we do not care about animals or their welfare. We do care or we would not be investing time, money & a whole lot of effort in educating the public about protecting our rights, animal ownership, agriculture, & our heritage.
HOW BEAUTIFUL A DAY CAN BE WHEN FRIENDSHIP TOUCHES IT
💚I just stepped outside to check the mail and found a little parcel waiting for me on my door step. I opened it to find the sweetest gift and card inside.
Part of the card reads:
‘To My Earth Angel Traci,
I saw this little card after a lovely weekend with you, laughing and spending time in nature. I was drawn to it because of the two little birds and the beautiful green colour, which I know you love.
I hope this little gift reminds you each and every time you wear it, of the vibrant, fresh and inspirational soul you are and how much I adore you...
Love you forever, Ruth’ @ruthihudson
💚It’s the little things that can make a BIG difference in someone’s day.

AN EVENING WITH KEVIN RICHARDSON aka THE LION WHISPERER
🇿🇦Last night I had the privilege of attending an event hosted by the @painteddogconservationinc to help raise much needed funds for Painted Dogs in Africa.
🇿🇦If you’re not familiar with this organisation, they help provide support to projects in Africa that are actively conserving the endangered African Wild Dog, also known as the Painted Hunting Dog or Painted Wolf.
🇿🇦Their special guest, Kevin Richardson @lionwhisperersa spoke at length, about his work and the current challenges he faces against the canned hunting industry.
🇿🇦It was a full house and not only was a lot of money raised for our endangered animal friends, but the VEGAN MEALS were delicious!🙌🏼😉
Panel discussion at the #EAGxBerlin : Should Animal Advocates focus on Veganism or Antispeciesism? @edgertonleah and Tobias Leenaert (a.k.a the #VeganStrategist ) representing @proveg.de in the discussion with Jens Tuider moderating. Great job team! 🌱🤘🏼🐷
