Living in Harmony with Animals
by Carla Bennett
Book Publishing Company, Summertown, 1999, ISBN 1-57067-085-4
Carla Bennett, kindness consultant and regular columnist for PETA's Animal Times (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), draws on a lifetime of experience with animals to answer your questions about coexisting peacefully with animals in all sorts of situations.
No matter where you live, you can help animals in so many ways that take neither time nor money, just knowledge and consideration. Do you know, for example, how your choice of a household or office product or a cosmetic affects rabbits and other animals in laboratories? Should your circus choice be Ringling Bros. And Barnum & Bailey or the Cirque du Soleil? What if raccoon builds her nest in your chimney? In what ways does every step you take toward vegetarianism help the animals, your health, and our planet? Does the national "animal" organization you belong to support hunting and trapping? (You might be surprised.)
Get practical ideas, vegetarian recipes, and lists of organizations and resources to help you positively affect the animals around you.
