ANIMALS AND COMPASSION

Bringing the Voice of Our Many Faiths to Animals

Compassion lies at the heart of all faith traditions. Many people have their earliest experiences of compassion as children interacting with animals.

In a world where kindness is often lacking, it’s imperative that we speak out on behalf of kindness toward animals especially when there is a growing body of evidence that animals have a far greater depth of feelings, cognitions and complex social bonding than most humans have realized. Animals are not objects – they are living, breathing, feeling beings and an integral part of the Creation

The Guibord Center brings the voice of faith to the discussion of animals and their treatment and hopefully will help to expand the conversation.

addressing a remarkably broad spectrum of abuses.
