Compassionate Living Choices"Compassionate
living" is a concept based on the belief that humans have a moral
responsibility to treat animals with respect, and that the interests of
humans and animals should be considered equally. This means that in any
decision that could potentially affect the life of an animal, that
particular animal's interests should not be dismissed simply because it
is inconvenient for us to consider them.
Although it may not always be easy to determine accurately the best interests of an animal, we can safely assume that animals generally prefer to live, to be free from pain and to express their natural behaviors.
