Yet humans with the knowledge to survive better choose to do things that hinder their ability to survive by consuming poisons and causing self inflicted stress. The only logical conclusion to this behavior is ego, the need to feel all mighty and in some cases invincible. The study of why people do drugs knowing it will hurt them is often chalked up as a way to escape or test their need to survive. We also see this often with extreme sports and wild tasks to tests one’s strength and survival ability. These risks that have become a common part of modern day society have no relevance in better survival and only effect the person doing the act. Some might say they did this extreme act to inspire people to do more. This would only perpetuate more people doing things that would risk their survival. Really this is just a excuse to not have to forwardly […]

When getting boarding and dog walking we highly suggest meeting the person watching your dog first and using them over and over if possible. Dogs like to warm up to people, well most dogs lol.

Most people might not realize how caring animals can be. How they love and feel pain and sadness like us. For me that is why I joined ALOP. Just because animals do not speak our language does not mean they do not feel like we do. Every time an animal is locked in cages, hunted, or abused that animals feel a pain more than we can even imagine. I am here for the love of animals and to give them a chance at a happy life true to their nature. With that said here is some heart warming videos of animals showing love: If anyone tries to say animals don’t feel, or care. It’s your job to set them straight. With the right knowledge and compassion, someday animals will be able to live good lives on the planet we share.
