The photos of a mother lion’s dramatic rescue of her tiny cub might have you singing, “Can you feel the love tonight?”

These little piggies went to the state fair … and now there are 165 new human cases of swine flu

You may have taken a tour of New York City, but did you ever do it vegan style? If not, Vegan Tours can help you take a bite out of the big vegan apple.

If anyone wonders how primates feel about being kept in zoos, this heartbreaking video of a clever chimpanzee who tries to orchestrate his escape should make it crystal clear: They want out.

“KittyCams” show cats as they stalk and kill lizards, chipmunks, birds, frogs, snakes, and other small animals. Protecting wildlife: another great reason to keep cats indoors.

Rescuing their animals, saying “No, thanks” to meat, and starring in ads for PETA: Here are the Olympians who always medal in compassion.

Air France is maltreating monkeys, profiting from shipping them to their deaths in laboratories. Tell the airline that contributing to primate torment n’est pas gentil.

Post this fun, informative infographic on vegan eating to your social-networking sites, and watch the “But where do you get your protein?” questions dwindle.

    I live in the National Capital District of CanaDa. While I love all animals and pets, I am a cat person having the best cat house in Hull. All my cats are indoor/outdoor being most natural, but they know where they are fed and loved and always return home. Two weeks ago a stray cat appeared on my street for the 1st time and it appeared to me and my neighbours someone might of given it a boot to the face because it’s nose was completely indistinguishable on it’s flat face. It could not breathe through it’s nose and was malnourished. Being a senior on a small fixed income, I cannot afford a Veterinarian, but called everyone in my area to see if they would look at this exceptional cat Pro Bono or for free. None would do that! That’s when I phoned PETA for the 1st time and I am so impressed and thankful with the care and concern they showed for this one stray cat. Thanks to the efforts of PETA and Rachel the PETA representative I dealt with, this stray, brilliantly coated, Calico Persian cat is able to breathe freely now, on the road to complete recovery. As much as I would love to keep her, I already have too many cats and other strange cats trying to get into this cat house. I have found a good indoor loving home for her in my neighbourhood where I can watch her develop. Again, kudos to PETA for the concern they showed.

    Have to say the courage of the mother lion rescueing her cub says it all, she risked her life but how amazing she knew excatley what to do nnd the photo’s of some of the pride leaning over the drop before the mother took the plunge, this is a true family unit, shame some humans are not the same.
