Scientists confirm animals have feelings (duh!)

Good news! Over 200 experts have already signed the “The New York Declaration on Animal Consciousness,” which confirms what we already know: animals are conscious, sentient beings who have emotions just like we do. [1]

New discoveries on animal consciousness led to the creation of the declaration, which hopefully will lead society to treat animals better. According to Yahoo news, “Scientists’ changing understanding of animal sentience could have implications for U.S. law, which does not classify animals as sentient on a federal level.” [2] 

For example, zebrafish show signs of curiosity. Bees have playful behaviors. Cuttlefish remember details from their past. Animals can suffer just like us, and they can also be incredibly happy. As humans, we have the unique opportunity to be their heroes.

Our mission is to end the number 1 cause of suffering and death for dogs and cats -- overpopulation -- by developing a permanent-lasting birth control cookie that will only need to be eaten one time, and it will in effect spay or neuter -- without surgery.

The tragedy of companion animal suffering is a direct result of human irresponsibility. It is our duty to work together to find solutions.

The good news is, you can join our innovative work to develop the One-Dose Cookie! Help stop the suffering before it starts.

Join the pack! Each of us can pitch in and help animals for only $1 a month!

Thanks so much for caring about animals!
