People in government have authority and opportunity to change that by making humane treatment of animals public policy rather than choice. Responsible Policies for Animals shows people in government how they can help to do that. The Framers of the Constitution sought to establish justice, promote the general welfare, provide for the common defense, and secure the blessings of liberty to the people and their posterity.

4 Ways Mainstream Animal Rights Movements Are Oppressive
Animal Rights Petitions Let’s stand together for animal rights It’s time to take action on animal rights. Around the world, animals are subjected to cruelty and denied even the most basic considerations. The same rights that we believe to be unalienable for humans should be protected for animals as well. And it is up to us to make it happen. Every animal, from the smallest mouse to the largest elephant, has value and the right to a long, happy, healthy life free of suffering.
Every living creature deserves to have its basic needs met — adequate food and water and comfortable living conditions.

Overweight pets have been shown to be at a higher risk of developing diabetes, liver problems, joint pain, kidney failure, and cancer.
Lack of exercise and high-caloric diets are considered to be the primary contributors to pet obesity. In a study of 92 people hospitalized for coronary ailments, within a year 11 of the 29 patients without pets had died, compared to only 3 of the 52 patients who had pets.

They also offer physical contact with another living creature, something that is often missing in an elder’s life. The most common therapy dogs are therapeutic visitation dogs. These dogs are household pets whose handlers take time to visit hospitals, nursing homes, detention facilities, and rehabilitation facilities. There is some evidence that pets can facilitate social interaction.

Based off of that, it might be easy to assume that I wholeheartedly support the animal rights movement, along with vegan and vegetarian diets. And you know what? I do support accountability for how our actions harm animals, and I am completely on board with people making changes to their diet and lifestyle that are in line with their values and physical needs. There are a number of fabulous people out there — particularly those frequently invisiblized people of color who are doing incredible anti-oppressive work around animal rights , veganism, and vegetarianism in their communities see just a few of them here , here , and here!
The thing is, those people and the work they are doing is not what most people think of when they think of veganism, vegetarianism, and animal rights. If I were to ask 20 random people to name one organization that supports animal rights and going vegan, the most common answer would likely be PETA People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Just to give you a brief idea of what I mean, PETA has run ads that are fatphobic , classist, compare the murder of sex workers to pig farming , compare eating meat to lynching , exotify women of color , and compare factory farming to the Nazi Holocaust , among other examples.
