Help is on the way in the form of state-of-the-art medical care at UC Davis for the badly disfigured hero dog of the Philippines.
As the story goes, Kabang, a medium-sized mutt now at UC Davis vet school, lost her snout and upper jaw when she leapt in front of a motorcycle to save two small girls in the Philippines.
It’s hard to look at the animal, who survived despite her massive injuries. An international campaign raised money to send her to UC Davis, where this week she underwent tests and examinations.
Kabang will need at least two surgeries, the first dental and the second a try at closing the gaping wound on the dog’s face. (read the rest)
Wow I just started crying at this
I don’t care if the animals are fed gourmet, organic food out of silver-plated troughs, sleep on Tempur-Pedic mattresses, have their nails painted, are given daily massages, bathed in Whirpool bathtubs, and sang to every night. I don’t give even a single shred of fuck that a little prayer is said before the life is literally drained from them.
It is domination. It is violence. It is a violation. IT IS WRONG.
Whether or not you are vegan or support animal rights aside, stop spewing this vomit-inducing nonsense as if I and other vegans will actually give a shit. Factory farming is not the root of animal cruelty within the farming industry. Commodifying animals in the first place IS.
This has been a vegan rant.
A.L.F. “If not you, who? If not now, when?”
Definitely thinking about taking the next step from vegetarianism and becoming a Vegan.
