Do you consider yourself an animal welfare activist? There is a simple way to measure your compassion and effectiveness.
Choose a time frame: day, week, month or year.
(x) Tally how many animals you have rescued, saved or attempted to help in the time frame you have chosen.
(y) Subtract the number of animals you have eaten, served to your loved ones as food or worn for clothing in the same time frame.
(z) = your animal activism score.
x - y = z
COMPASSION : sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it
“And those who dismiss love for our fellow creatures as mere sentimentality overlook a good and important part of our humanity. But it takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal. And it is actually within us to grant them a happy life and a long one.” – Joaquin Phoenix | EARTHLINGS
