These Dying Dogs Need Your Help Urgently

By | Apr 22, 2016 | Views: 550

The dog meat farm has been shut down, but the lives of these dogs are still in danger.

If you live next to a dog meat farm and are forced to walk your dogs past this horrific slaughter house every day, would it move you to make a difference or would your senses be numbed from the pain of such a sight? 

For one couple living in Korea, compassion and the wish to end the sufferings of those dogs led them to take action for the closure of a dog meat farm located near their apartment. After months of obstacle-ridden battles, they finally succeeded in shutting the dog meat farm down. But with one problem solved, another arose. The immediate concern now is, where can these poor abused dogs go?

It is literally “out of the frying pan and into the fire”. With Korean animal welfare organizations placing the rescue of such ‘meat dogs’ at the lowest priority, these dogs are at risk of being transferred to another dog meat farm. A kind Canadian filmmaker has helped to produce a short awareness campaign video, but much support is still needed to ensure these dogs can be saved from the certainty of death. If this should happen, then all that Gina and her husband have worked for will have gone to waste. 

Thank you, Gina, for your hard work and for writing in to us to create awareness about the plight of these poor suffering dogs in Korea. H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche is a strong advocate for animal rights, and his compassion is a quality that many of his followers attempt to emulate through spiritual practice.

At this very moment, we may not be able to save every single dog in the world, but let’s start with these 25 dogs. May Gina’s efforts to create awareness about ‘meat dogs’ grow and eventually liberate all dogs from such cruel fates. 

If you have come across this article then PLEASE, with compassion, share and donate to this worthy cause. These dogs need your urgent aid, they need to be bought from this cruel farm and most importantly, they need to find a new, loving and caring home, something they have never known.

    Your Next Meal!

    Yummy? Tasty? Behind the scenes of the meat on your plates. Meat is a killing industry.

    This is Daw

    This is what they do to get meat on tables, and to produce belts and jackets. Think twice before your next purchase.

    Don’t Take My Mummy Away!

    Look at the poor baby chasing after the mother. Why do we do that to them? It’s time to seriously think about our choices in life and how they affect others. Be kind. Don’t break up families.

    Thank you for this sharing. All animals deserved to live. They are not born to be a piece of meat on our dinner plate. Rejoice to the great effort by Gina to free these poor doggies from ending up on dinner table. How could anyone bear to eat them?

    Since all animals have feelings and can feel pain, we should not be selective on which species should we choose not to consume. If we can be kind and loving to dogs, hence not eating them, we should be kind and loving to chickens, pigs, cows and lambs too. While we may not breed chickens or pigs etc inside our home, and hug them like how we do dogs, the least we can do is not to cause harm to them. Let’s start by being a vegetarian today.

  7. Edward Ooi on Oct 19, 2016 at 2:02 am

    First, I would love to thank Gina and her husband for putting in so much effort to save these poor doggies from being eaten and treated worse any further. Dog eating is well known in some parts of China, Korea, and Vietnam. Good thing is that more and more people are against eating dogs, and many of them speak it up in public shutting down dog factories and restaurants that serve dog meat.

    It is bad enough for people to consume dogs, it is even worse when these people torture the dog by beating it and slowly killing it because they believe that by doing so, they are able to tenderize the flesh further which is an invalid and unreasonable excuse to use for treating them badly. Sometimes, the people will even dump the dogs into blazing hot boiling water while they are still alive! There are videos all over the internet about this issue. Can you imagine if you yourself were to go through that situation just so that a couple of inhumane beasts can enjoy eating your flesh? The body belongs to the animal and we should not have rights to do such cruel things to them.

    I am not only referring to dogs only, there are countless of animals being tortured before being slaughtered every single day all around the world. Inside the factories, behind those walls are workers who mistreat these animals, taking pleasure in killing them. You do not usually hear news like this simply because the media tend to cover the truth, you will definitely learn the truth when you visit the factories with your own eyes. It is truly horrifying, it is basically a place where these farm animals are bred and killed. I hope that all of this will soon come to an end one day.

    Things we have learnt culturally, can be unlearnt. No animal begs to bee food for other animals or humans. Please end the practice of dog meat farms.

  9. samfoonheei on Jun 21, 2016 at 2:11 pm

    Thanks for sharing.It a good and short article that will show the plight of dogs .The Yulin dog meats festival that begins in China today is really sad .how many dogs suffer under such sequences.Hopefully the government or the activist will do something to stop it. Meantime do hope that people are aware of the dogs sufferings .
    Thanks you .

  10. Lucas Roth on May 8, 2016 at 11:43 am

    poche and these dogs do need help. Shutting down the dog meat farm was a good move and a good thing to do. However, it seems that the people who did shut it down did not think it through because they did not think about where the dogs would go after. We need people to step in and take them to shelters or adopt.

    I really do wish that these dogs would be rescued and I really felt for them when I watched the video. I will share this video and article online to try to spread awareness for these dogs.

    • Lucas Roth on May 8, 2016 at 11:45 am

      Sorry, there was an error, and the first part of my comment was cut off. I said thank you for sharing Rinpoche and before that I talked about how these dogs should not have to endure so much suffering just because us humans are too ignorant to realise that they are like us and they deserve just as much as we do because they are alive too and they feel too.

  11. Greg Mount on May 2, 2016 at 1:28 am

    Thank you for sharing this story. My partner is EK Park, the founder of Free Korean Dogs, who is currently in Korea shooting a documentary titled Compassion Soup: the End of Dog Meat in Korea. The clip featured in this article was shot while filming the documentary.

    While we focus on the plight of Korean dogs, our overall goal is to help cultivate compassion over cruelty towards all living beings. Again, thank you for helping to advance this mission.

    • Sarah Yap on May 5, 2016 at 12:17 pm

      Dear Greg,

      Thank you very much for your and EK Park’s effort to bring awareness on the issues of the Dog Meat industry, and in general, the sufferings of all slaughter housed animals. Our teacher, H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche promotes heavily on Compassionate dining to his readers and students, many of Rinpoche’s students have became vegetarian because of his great patience and constant teachings on developing compassion towards all sentient beings.

      I am glad to hear that EK Park is making a documentary. I (and many others I know personally) became vegetarian after Rinpoche shared a video called Earthlings with us. So I believe strongly that evocative documentaries to show the horrors of these slaughter houses has the potential of kindling the innate compassion that everyone have and thus making a strong impact in the lives of many.

      I wish the both of you much success. Please do keep us updated on your documentary project.

      Much care,
      Sarah

  12. Pastor Han Nee on Apr 24, 2016 at 10:12 pm

    Thank you Sarah for highlighting the plight of the 25 dogs in this dog farm. Our hearts go out to them. Rescuing them from the certain fate of being slaughtered for their meat was a courageous act and a feat, in lieu of the many obstacles that were encountered. May this act not be wasted: may the 25 dogs be placed in secure homes or a shelter.

    While the plight of these dogs has caught our attention , what about the daily slaughter of other animals like chickens, pigs, cows, sheep for their meat. All animals without exception have the right to life. They should not be mindlessly and callously slaughtered just to satisfy the craving of humans for their meat.

  13. Uncle Eddie on Apr 24, 2016 at 6:33 pm

    As George Bernard Shaw has said,”We are the living graves of murdered beasts, slaughtered to satisfy our appetites.” And as supported by Albert Schweitzer, who remarked, “Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages!” We as the living human beings of this World, should take a serious view od such ‘Atrocity’, in our attempt to bring peace, harmony, happiness and unity into this World. For, as written, it is also said,”As the NATION SOWS, SO SHALL IT REAP”. Therefore, to end such senseless killings and cruelty, best is for all to go “Vegetarian”. Om Mani Padme Hung.

  14. Pastor Yek Yee on Apr 24, 2016 at 1:24 am

    Please help all the dogs in dog meat farm of Korean. Don’t let’s them be kill become food of human in table. Dog is royal and can feel pain, as a human we cannot do this kind of things to other beings! I believed that the karma is very heavy.

  15. Pastor Adeline on Apr 24, 2016 at 1:17 am

    Dogs are man’s best friend. As cliche as it sounds, it is true. Meat eating shouldn’t be encouraged because it causes suffering in another sentient being. It is not so much of food we are talking about, but our desire that stops us from empathising with others, our denial of being selective in choosing the being we eat. It is necessary for us to see beyond the desire of our three inches taste buds and act from our very kind and compassionate nature. Please start by supporting this good deed, sign the petition and donate to the cause. Thank you!

  16. Mingwen on Apr 23, 2016 at 9:53 pm

    It is extremely cruel to cut another sentient  being’s neck or gut just to take them as our food. As a human being, we are intelligent enough and capable to think and control our mind from all desires. If we really put some affords to do something, we can really make dreams come true.

    Being selfish is always the demon inside us, manipulate us at all times. Eating meat just to fulfill ours desires etc,. texture, scent, flavor and appearance. Even we are starve and there is no more food, there is only one living being nearby. It is NOT okay to kill and eat, just to keep ourselves alive.

    One way that I think we can do to save lives is to focus on animal birth control. This would stop common stray animals such as cats and dogs from mating and keep giving births.

    Thank you.

    看了照片报道我上网查看了一下,看为什么会吃狗肉?

    一般是北方吃狗肉的多,尤其是东北一带包括朝鲜韩国,其实狗肉和羊肉类似,适合在冬天吃,因为能驱寒,北方地区喜欢吃是因为冬天吃羊肉和狗肉能提升身体的温度,让身体很快热起来,而西北地区主要是羊比较多,靠吃羊肉驱寒,而在中国的东北一带,包括朝鲜半岛,主要靠吃狗肉来驱寒,提高身体的温度。因为在冬天寒冷的天气下,吃完狗肉,人的体温会很快提高。

    也许在社会高度文明的今天,物质生活越来越发达,已不需要靠吃狗肉和羊肉来驱寒保暖,但是在遥远的过去,人类获取食物的方式有限,社会生活不发达的情况下,吃狗肉保暖形成了祖先的饮食习惯 。

    虽然现在社会发展了,但是过去的一些传统,习惯还是在现在的文明生活中若隐若现。到了今天,人们的饮食选择扩大了很大的范围,更多的人不再选择这种饮食方式。但是习惯不是一天两天形成的,要改变一种风俗和习惯需要经历很长的时间。

    也许再过一段时间,会有很多人接收狗是人类的朋友,从而使大家都在思想深处放弃这种饮食习惯。到那时,就不会有人再吃狗肉了。

  18. Lin Mun on Apr 23, 2016 at 2:41 pm

    Thank you Sarah for sharing this. It is very sad to see so many dogs suffers just for our taste bud.

    I will share this article and hope to create more awareness. It is important to know that not only dogs that we human are hurting but other animals too as we eat all sorts like chicken, pig, cow and etc.

  19. Vinnie Tan on Apr 23, 2016 at 12:28 pm

    Thank you Sarah for bringing this up to all of us on the blog here. There is no reason for us to harm animals in any way.

    In the past we have heard that many other countries do the same thing for dog and cat meat trade. It is not something that is unusual of a culture. People may say that these dogs should not be treated in this manner, yet, they are doing the same for other animals. How will the fate of these dogs be different from another animal like a cow, pig, sheep, chicken, and so on? It makes no sense how as humans we say that it is alright to kill and harm certain animals yet it is not morally correct to do so for other animals. By the end of the day, both types of animals that we have categorized are all the same. None of them should be better or worst then another being.

    People see things similar things that are happening on a daily basis. Unless we take action and stop consumption on our end, we will not be able to help them. By just saying nice words will not help. It is only through the actions that will be able to help what is going on.

  20. Pastor Loh Seng Piow on Apr 23, 2016 at 11:29 am

    Stop eating dogs, but also stop eating any other living beings like chickens, ducks, pigs, cows, fishes, lambs…they are all equal. Become a vegan today, and stop all karma of sentient being eating each other and being eaten by each other.

    • Jason on Apr 25, 2016 at 3:01 am

      Well said Pastor Seng Piow. But I am not vegetarian yet.i am trying meatless on every meal and will take three months vege vows on July to make myself successful in spiritual path.
      Thanks Sarah Yap for sharing .

  21. Pastor Antoinette Kass on Apr 23, 2016 at 10:52 am

    Dear Sarah,

    Thank you for sharing this sad but encouraging witness. Dogs have been part of my life since young. The dog was always my friend, someone who looked after our house and surroundings.

    It never crossed my mind to harm him. So to learn about Dog meat farms is shocking at least. Since I have learned about the pain animals experience only for our tastebuds I have stopped eating meat. It is through the awareness my teacher H.E. the 25th Tsem Rinpoche has created and shared on this blog and on social media.

    Now, to eat dog meat most people I know, would refrain as a dog is a friend and part of the family. The dogs in the movie above, look like every dog we know, sweet and trusting, So I hope that eating dog meat and any kind of meat must stop and we take note of what we create to others unnecessarily.

    I will share about this and hope the dogs will all be saved and that dog meat farms will end very soon.

  22. Joy on Apr 23, 2016 at 7:45 am

    Dogs can be man’s best friend… but we man sure can dogs worst enemy. When I see this kind of inhuman places, it really makes me sad, angry and I wish I could demolish such places but I guess just wishing it doesn’t do much. We need to put our wishes into real actions and go out of our way like Gina to do something.

    Even if we cannot do anything on our own capacity at this point of time we start with promoting, creating awareness and supporting those who do by at least spreading the news. The other thing we can do since we keep saying we love animals, is that we should STOP eating them. What makes eating dogs and eating chicken or cow any better? What is so different from a steak and from a dog meat? Both are meat and one does make the other any better hence in Korea, they see it all as equal and this is why they are eating them and selling them in the first place.

    If we’re truly compassionate, we should start by eating compassionately. We would not eat our dogs, then why be selective and eat others, they are all animals, aren’t they? This we must come to realise… dog meat, chicken meat or beef, all is the same, all these animals feel pain and suffer tremendously from the beginning till the end where they are led to the slaughter house. And none of them liked of enjoys being slaughtered.

  23. Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai on Apr 23, 2016 at 5:50 am

    Sarah, thank you for sharing this new about the dog meat farm in Korea. It just makes you think, what kind of person and mind does it take to work in a slaughterhouse, abattoir, dog meat farm, etc.?

    And people who say, “Awwwww so cute! Poor thing!” when they see suffering dogs and yet still eat meat, are guilty of hypocrisy. Because how can you say it’s wrong or bad to eat dog meat, and yet continue to eat beef (for example)? How can you judge someone for eating dog meat, when you yourself eat beef / lamb / chicken? How is the life of the cow less valuable than the life of the dog? And what gave us the authority to make that distinction?

    In a time and age where eating meat, much less dog meat, is not necessary towards our sustenance and survival, there’s really no reason why anyone should continue to keep meat as a part of their diet.

  24. MartinC on Apr 23, 2016 at 5:37 am

    Dogs are such gentle and loyal beings when you give them even a little love and care. It is easy for me to say that I cannot imagine how anyone can eat such beautiful beings. But then again I too ate animals before I met the Dharma and just about all animals we slaughter and eat are gentle, harmless and sentient for sure. They all feel pain and like human beings, seek happiness and security. Other than their form which is different and our prejudice, animals are not that different to us.

    Therefore, for me its not a matter of judgement but creating awareness that eating dogs or for that matter, any animals, create such pain for them and great disbenefit for us. In creating awareness there are times when we have to take actions that seem more drastic because the current that makes killing other beings and eating their flesh deeply habituated and have become normalised.

    This is a good story but the story and responsibility does not end when we rescue animals from death or the streets. We still have to care for them and this is where the help is needed most.

  25. Pastor David Lai on Apr 23, 2016 at 4:56 am

    I think dogs are already one of the more privileged animals because of human domestication and how dogs are man’s companions. But even then, barbaric human beings have still exploited this poor animal and this is just one prime example of animal cruelty. It’s just too bad that dogs being honoured amongst the entire animal kingdom still has to suffer abuse, exploitation, torture and slaughter for its meat.

    Awareness of such evil deeds has be brought to public awareness so such cruel people will be stopped. Slowly and surely, people have to really extend kindness and consideration towards other animals and eventually all animals. We as human beings, endowed with intelligence and conscience should evolve higher and develop universal qualities of compassion and kindness.

  26. Li Kheng on Apr 23, 2016 at 2:11 am

    As intelligent as we have become with the information boom of our era, people often fail to think deeper on the consequences of their actions. We are also too superficial in our effort to help. Yes, closing down a factory could stop the dogs from being killed for meat but it does not resolve the core issue which is: to save the dogs.

    Short term solutions is liked to treating the symptoms and not addressing the source of the illness.

    It is wonderful that Rinpoche and the blog team is supporting this cause to create awareness of this plight!

  27. Pastor Shin on Apr 23, 2016 at 12:50 am

    Thank you Sarah for sharing this news with us. I’m glad to know that the they finally succeeded in shutting the dog meat farm down.

    There is a long history of consumption of dog meat in South Korea, where it is known as “Gaegogi” and it is estimated that approximately 2.5 million dogs are slaughtered in South Korea every year. Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA), In Defense of Animals, Guardians of Rescue, and koreandogs.org are petitioning the South Korean government to ban dog meat consumption.

    All of us can make a difference for animals. We can adopt (instead of buying) a pet, choosing products not tested on animals, eating a humane diet, or engaging your community in animal protection issues. When we have collective efforts to confront these cruelties, things will change for the better.

    Please share this post on social media so that more people are aware as much help is needed.

  28. kb thapa on Apr 23, 2016 at 12:06 am

    It is our job to be the voice for creatures who cannot speak up for themselves. As a nation we need to make it our priority to come together and ensure the safety of our beloved pets. As Rinpoche always say “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the mindset of others.Given these examples it’s hard to imagine why all don’t take animal cruelty seriously..

  29. Beatrix Ooi on Apr 22, 2016 at 10:53 pm

    It’s horrible that people still practise this kind of cruelty in the 21st century where everything is advancing. I personally think that people should stop doing this and move forward, dogs are the best companion a man could have. It’s very saddening to watch these poor doggies all cramped up in such a small space, this is extreme cruelty! How can people be so selfish that they can do almost everything to satisfy their taste buds? Even at the cost of killing animals such as dogs…

    Dogs are just an example, in fact, all animals should be free from slaughterhouses. All animals are equal as humans, none of one is more superior or ‘low-class’. Animals have their rights too, none of us have the right to take their lives away. All sentient beings have feelings too, we should stop all these cruelties before it’s too late. I hope everyone will read this article thoroughly and share the news out, please help these poor doggies.

  30. Pastor Niral Patel on Apr 22, 2016 at 10:13 pm

    There is so much suffering in the world, and it is the goal of Mahayana Buddhists to end this suffering. To this effect, on must show compassion to sentient beings stuck in Samsara as part of this training, even towards animals. His Eminence 25th Tsem Rinpoche who is himself a strong and avid advocate for animal rights, always encourages his students and friends, to adopt a healthier and vegetarian lifestyle in this regards.

    Thank you Sarah for sharing this with us, informing us of this horrible practice, it should come to an end. But with the amount of work that animal rights organisations have all over the world to deal with such cruelty for simple and temporary gratification one gets from eating meat, it is up to each individual to make a stand for animals and their rights.

    I urge everyone who reads this to show their support in any way they can, at the same time adopting an animal friendly and vegetarian life style. It is through this that we can really make a difference in the world with the short time that we all have to make the earth a better, more loving, suffering-free environment.

  31. Valentina Suhendra on Apr 22, 2016 at 9:01 pm

    Dear Sarah

    Thank you for the article. I had several Korean colleagues before. I told them that I love my pet dog very much. They laughed at me and told me that they ate dog meat in a proud way. I was quite disgusted at the time.

    I really appreciate the fact that you brought this issue up in Rinpoche’s blog. It will help to bring awareness to the issue. It is really sad that some people do not have conscience and continue to enjoy the suffering of beings to satisfy their taste buds.

    Valentina

    Beautiful pictures of H.E Zava Damdin Rinpoche, an erudite Mongolian Buddhist master conferring the initiation of Yamantaka and Dorje Shugden to a crowd of 10,000 people. He was recognised as the reincarnation of one of the greatest Buddhist masters, yogis, healers, scholars and mahasiddhas in Mongolia.

    Well I do enjoy watching scary and haunting videos even when told its scary. Out of curiosity I enjoy watching ghostly encounters and supernatural happenings. Good or bad, all of these videos have a paranormal . From haunted houses, paranormal possessions, to hilarious horror spoofs, while other good supernatural horror videos are about demons and devils. Many of the best supernatural horror movies or videos have produced sequels and spin-offs. Anyway I do believe unseen beings, ghost do exist due to their previous karma . All these stories whether its real life stories or just movies tells us the truth of suffering.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this interesting sharing.

    Zasep Tulku Rinpoche a respected, courage, highly attained Lama and a well known dedicated and devoted Dorje Shugden practitioner . Having a strong guru devotion , courage ,great teaching abilities, he is truly a Great Lama who has uphold the lineage and be of benefit to others. He is admired by many for his courage speaking against the odds and defending about Dorje Shugden practice. He speaks the truth of the practice , the preservation of the Gelug lineage and Tibetan Buddhism. Zasep Rinpoche also acknowledges that the Shugden controversy was orchestrated by the Tibetan Leadership to deflect attention from their incompetence. Dorje Shugden has been practiced for centuries by many high lamas. He even said that it was Dorje Shugden that has exhorted the Dalai Lama to flee Tibet.
    In his autobiography,… A Tulku’s Journey From Tibet To Canada tells us a thousand words his account and experience as a refugee. He was forced to flee his invaded country, on a desperate journey to refugee status in Nepal, travelling through a number of countries and finally, citizenship in Canada. The book gives readers an intimate look into the life of one of the remaining Tibetan born and trained masters. A definite good book to catch hold as its contain all of the elements of a great spiritual bio. He continues to share precious knowledge through an expanding of books, which is available in many countries.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing.

    A dog, cat, bird or any animal you bring home is not a pet. You may think of them as so, but they don’t think that way about themselves. To them you are their hope, love, family and safety. If you cannot take care of them, don’t get them in… the first place. Just like any family member when young, they are cute and cuddly, but as they grow, they become adults. You don’t get rid of a family member when they are not cute and cuddly anymore do you? All animals have feelings of pain, sorrow, joy, love, fear and security just like us. Don’t cause them any pain or anxiety. They need us as we need them.

    They are not a commodity, toy, entertainment, punching bag or some fixture to abuse or get rid of when we don’t want them anymore. Think how you would feel if you were them and you were dumped somewhere? Imagine if you are just something to be eliminated when your not cuddly and cute anymore or just ‘get in the way?’ Be kind to animals especially the ones you bring home and cuddle and love when they are babies. You are their world and the only world they have in their restricted lives. Remember we took them from their mothers, families and separated them from their siblings when very young and environments and forced them into our environments. We owe them some loyalty.

    On a visit to the Modisa Wildlife Project near Maun, Botswana, traveller John Hawkins captured this heartwarming footage that shows the incredible bond between a lioness and her rescuer. In the video, Sirga can be seen eagerly pacing back and forth behind a fence as the man, Valentin Gruener, unlocks the gate. Once the gate is opened, the 110-pound lioness jumps onto Gruener—for a cuddly, full-body embrace! Sirga clearly displays her affection for the man, rubbing noses with him during the hug and even laying across his lap on the ground. What an amazing friendship!

    Thank you for the sharing the mystery of the sailing stone. Actually we need to thank the mother earth for creating all the wonders and miracles. Making scientists puzzled in their research and a loss to explain how or why rocks appear to move around by themselves.

    It is very interesting and sound crazy. I never heard of this phenomenon before, but those photos made me google for further information.. I really hope to get here one day just to feel the extraordinary scenery and to witness the incredible phenomenon. Enjoyed the article and the photos.

    Released in 2005, EARTHLINGS premiered at the Artivist Film Festival and won the Best Documentary Feature. It then went on to win the Best Content Award and Best Documentary Film at the Boston International Film Festival and the San Diego Film Festival respectively.

    What is this video that made such an impact on these renowned film recognition boards?

    The 95-minute documentary was inspired by Shaun Monson. He’s a writer, producer and director who had previous shot footage of animal shelters within Los Angeles. He did it to produce a series of public service announcements… however, what he saw had such a profound effect on him that he decided to produce what became known as Earthlings.

    Worldcrunch reports a historic change in Palitana, an Indian city, which has become the first all-vegetarian city in the world.

    Behind this revolutionary change are the Jain monks who went on a hunger strike to pressure the state of Gujarat to outlaw animal slaughter in their city. The hunger strike was successful and the Gujarat government imposed a ban on animal slaughter and outlawed the sale of meat and eggs.

    About 5 million people in India practice Jainism and agree with the ban.

    Virat Sagar Maharaj, a Jain monk, says, “Everyone in this world – whether animal or human being or a very small creature – has all been given the right to live by God.”

    These monks who built the temple has a really good motivation to use the glass bottles as the building material. We are generating a lot of rubbish every day but we have not thought where the rubbish will end up.

    Most of the rubbish we generated goes to the landfill. Some end up in the oceans. Either way, the rubbish has destroyed our environment and lives, including our health.

    These monks show us how to make rubbish into something useful. It is also a good lesson to teach us we have to care more about our environment.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) – Young people who torture and kill animals are prone to violence against people later in life if it goes unchecked, studies have shown. A new federal category for animal cruelty crimes will help root out those pet abusers before their behavior worsens and give a boost to prosecutions, an animal welfare group says.

    For years, the FBI has filed animal abuse under the label “other” along with a variety of lesser crimes, making cruelty hard to find, hard to count and hard to track. The bureau announced this month that it would make animal cruelty a Group A felony with its own category – the same way crimes like homicide, arson and assault are listed.

    “It will help get better sentences, sway juries and make for better plea bargains,” said Madeline Bernstein, president and CEO of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles and a former New York prosecutor.

    Jessie Earhart had been saving up for a new car when a chance encounter with an abandoned dog changed her plans completely. The kindhearted girl, just 15-years-old, asked her mom to stop when she discovered a discarded dog running along a road. When the teen approached the severely injured pup, the dog now known as Lilly, immediately ran into the girl’s arms nuzzling her head into her arms in relief.

    An animal control officer took Lilly away to a veterinarian for her facial injuries — believed to have been caused by someone who used an ax to strike her face. Lilly’s medical bills piled up and she faced euthanasia. When the teen found out, she offered up the $400 she had been saving to buy a car to help pay the veterinary expenses and decided to adopt the dog herself.

    The teen has no regrets and admits the right car will be there a year from now, but the dog’s life needed to be saved now. Wait until you see how happy Lilly is today — all thanks to one very incredible teen.

    Please take a look at these beautiful images of animals rearing their young in the wild. Their love, gentleness and care towards the young is so amazing. So touching. Each photo captured the beauty of the unbreakable bond between a parent and their child. If you’re a parent, you’ll surely appreciate this.

    Never hurt animals. Never kill them. Never eat them. Let them be in peace and have happy lives. They have every right to live and without fear just like us. We should always protect their environments also.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • She’s going to spend her whole life here without being able to move correctly. Like a machine. They are the slaves of the people and are viewed as a product. It’s immoral. Billions of terrestrial animals die annually. Billions. You can’t even imagine it. And all that because people don’t want to give up meat, even though there are so many alternatives. ~ Gabriel Azimov

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
