Care Like I Do is for people who love animals…really love animals. They recognize that animals are living, sentient beings who deserve consideration and respect. Like humans, non-human species do not deserve to be exploited, abused, killed or eaten. Since animals cannot speak for themselves, it is our job as their guardians and caretakers to be their voice, to ensure their welfare and fight for their rights. So if you’re one of those people who “want to know” when it comes to animal welfare issues and how you can help to make a difference in the lives of voiceless creatures, this blog is for you. Yes, there will be some happy, heartwarming and inspiring stories, but the primary purpose of this forum is to enlighten, inform and inspire animal lovers to get up and do something, anything, to help the beautiful, intelligent and unique beings with whom we share this planet, as well as our homes.
As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
About the author: I am a freelance writer and journalist, a devoted wife, dog mom and an animal activist. After writing professionally for many years about things I didn’t care about, I decided it was time to follow my passion and focus my talents on what I do care about – animals. When I’m not working as a contributing writer for Dogster magazine and other animal-related publications, you’ll typically find me sweating it out at my local yoga studio or hanging out with my four best friends – my wonderful husband and three very spoiled dogs.
