Thoughts on Humane Living

Marysville, Ohio



in association with snips
natural care & positive activism


    Many animal rights and animal welfare organizations are being joined by cities, states,
and even entire countries
in using the terms
"companion animal," "guardian,"and "he" or "she"
in place of
"pet," "owner," and "it."

We use and encourage the use of these terms to emphasize
the fact that animals are not
property, and should not be treated as such.

Because of positive approaches such as this, there have been many improvements in laws and policies regarding issues such as cruelty, dogfighting, and spay/neuter.   

 For more information on positive activism, as well as information on natural, holistic care, please visit The Spay/Neuter Incentive Project and Sanctuary (snips) website at www.snips.8m.com.

Thoughts on Living a More Humane Life

Ses and Me

All Animals Deserve a Little
Pawsitive Energy...

It's important to remember that many animals are not
as loved and cared for as those in our homes,
and as someone who makes a living through my work with animals,
I believe that I am especially accountable to them.

Through Pawsitive Energy and The Spay/Neuter Incentive Project
and Sanctuary, we share our home with many dogs, cats, horses,
and birds, make monthly donations to local animal rescue and
spay/neuter groups, and promote "natural care & positive
activism" through education and example.

Here at Pawsitive Energy, Our Holistic Approach to Animal Care Includes a Belief That All Animals are Entitled to Lives Free from Cruelty & Neglect

We are inspired by the words of
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Albert Schweitzer:

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with
which we treat the animals.

Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity
does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them.

It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it.

Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things,
humanity will not find peace."
The Philosophy of Civilization

This page is dedicated to and intended as a guide for
others who would like to enlarge their "circle of compassion."

More Thoughts

Very little of the great cruelty shown by men can really be attributed to cruel instinct.
Most of it comes from thoughtlessness or inherited habit. The roots of cruelty, therefore,
are not so much strong as widespread. But the time must come when inhumanity protected by
custom and thoughtlessness will succumb before humanity championed by thought.
Let us work that this time may come.

Albert Schweitzer (Nobel Peace Prize)
