Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

When Sam Simon, of The Simpsons fame, was diagnosed with cancer he made it his mission to alleviate as much animal suffering as possible.

In this endeavour he has collaborated closely with PeTA.

In a previous post, I discussed how Simon helped save Chinchillas from agonising death on a fur farm ~ August 2014.

I find his words extremely moving:

Then recently Simon helped rescue two Himalayan Black Bears from a roadside zoo in Tennessee. Read more @

The bears had been illegally imported into the U.S. and were being kept at Three Bears General Store where tourists would view them as an exhibition.

When not in the shop the bears were kept in backyard in cages.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   bears in cages

PeTA lodged a formal complaint with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

Thanks to a generous donation from Sam Simon, the bears have been moved to The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado, where they now live safely and free from harm. 

Yes, Simon does have the money to do these acts of kindness but hey, he could spend his money on “furs” and diamonds.

Instead, he has made an ethical choice to help innocent creatures.

REMEMBER, every act of kindness counts.

Dedicated to all nonhuman animals who live and die in captivity!
