Supporters of International Society for Animal Rights know that in recent years we have extended our humane education activities to many places outside the United States by “exporting” thousands of copies of our Reports and each August encouraging and assisting observance of our International Homeless Animals Day and candlelight vigils.
ISAR has looked beyond our shores because the awakening animal protection movements around the world are going to need all the help they can get, particularly in countries with no tradition of humane treatment of animals.
There is encouraging news:
ISAR is encouraged by these early steps toward animal protection because they stem from the growing awareness that took hold in the United States about a generation ago: that animals do have certain rights, and that it is arrogant and wrong for humans to abuse them.
Even though the current European laws leave a lot to be desired, they are a beginning–and ISAR intends to assist their proponents in strengthening and enlarging them.
We hope that our supporters realize, as we do, that animal protection seeds are sprouting all over the world–and that they need to be nurtured. With your help ISAR will keep working hard to do just that.
