I have a hard time when I see things like horse auctions, animals for sale at a flea market, and puppy mills where the focus is on making money. It may be the way the world is, but that doesn’t mean it’s right. There is a lot wrong with this world, I’m sure you agree with that.
We sell animals, living beings. I sit back and I think what would the creator of all the animals think of this? If I asked him “is this what you intended?” I think he would say “no.” If I asked him “does dominion over animals mean we can do whatever we please with them?”, I think he would say “no.” If I asked him “do you see animals as property?”, I think he would say “no.”
I think the image I put together below is how the world sees animals.
I actually picture how animals must feel being kept in cages, on a chain, in a pen, and up for sale. The picture I see is captured prisoners.
I know the picture below is an animal probably at a shelter up for adoption. I just put it here to get us thinking about an animal’s perspective.
“ANIMALS are FEELING BEINGS too.”
