Animal Rights Education

From ISAR’s inception in 1959, our organization has been acting on the principle that ideas do indeed have consequences, which is why so much of our effort has been devoted to offering animal rights education to the public about the principles of animal rights in the hope that our ideas will translate into law.

There are many aspects of animal rights education, from understanding the philosophical rationales seeking to justify their abuse to humane education of children in their attitude toward animals. For decades, ISAR has created and disseminated animal rights educational materials.

More and more in normal conversation one hears the observation that “ideas have consequences.” Usually, the speaker or writer means that opinion, beliefs, even thoughts when implemented cause events in the real world. As for example, when the ideology of animal activist matures to the belief (moral or practical) that dogs and cats should not be sold in retail commercial establishments such as pet shots, and soon that idea is embodied in a law prohibiting such sales.
