A poem by the author of "How Could You?" and "The Animal's Savior"
| 'Tis lonely here in prison,
I dream of sun, of fields,
I saw them from a window once,
but I don't know how they feel.
I've never known a caress,
But some men have decided,
What should fuel this folly?
We're hidden well from justice,

Please help change laws that ignore animals as sentient beings deserving of guardianship. Help stop the lobbyist and illegal activities of puppy/kitten mills and petshop trade associations, and some animal registries that allow this incredibly cruel situation to continue. Visit the websites of national and international humane organizations who are waging campaigns against this abuse, then write a letter to your local editor and contact your legislators and ask them to pass laws against large commercial breeding operations, animal auctions, and petshop sales.
