A message from Michael - PROTECTING ANIMALS AND THE EARTH


mos2006small_copy.jpgWe sure could use a little good news in these troubled times. Animals only want our respect and compassion and in turn they provide us with so much in return. With their soulful eyes, and the warmth of their unconditional love, in the difficult days and weeks that lie ahead, the bond between people and animals will become stronger than ever before.

Whether they swim through the ocean depths, soar through the heavens, or wander through the jungles and ice fields of the earth, their beauty and their majesty is profound and breath taking. If you have ever looked into the eyes of a shivering, frightened animal and through a simple act of kindness been rewarded by a gentle nuzzle, the sounds of a whimper or a contented purr, then you know exactly what I'm talking about.

As you read about each one of our accomplishments and as we fight to protect animals and nature from those who would harm them, you can take pride in the knowledge that none of them would have been possible without your help. There are many challenges that lie ahead of us in the months to come, and never forget for a moment, when it comes to fighting cruelty, we don't give up. Ever.

From our family to yours please accept our best wishes for a wonderful year.

Thank you for taking the time to help us protect animals and the earth and please pass this along to your family, friends andy one else you think cares about protecting animals and nature.

On behalf of the animals, thank you,

Michael O'Sullivan, Chairman & CEO
