"  If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans. I hope to make people realize how totally helpless animals are, how dependent on us, trusting as a child must that we will be kind and take care of their needs, are an obligation put on us, a responsibility we have no right to neglect, nor to violate by cruelty.
