    I love all animals and nature, so thought I'd get this thread going. This video is from one of my favourite youtube channels...

    This vid is from "Animal Aid Unlimited, India", an animal welfare organisation and sanctuary in India. Some very serious cases of animal neglect on this channel, but in most cases it has great outcomes...

    Their are pet threads under club forums,but this is a good idea to have a pet thread on the main board of BF.

    I love animals. Can't watch those cruelty videos, they make me sick.
    People that are cruel to animals are seriously ****** in the head.

    I'm off looking at different breeders most weekends. Any recommendations for a dog that doesn't shed hair (much), medium to large and a good temperament?

    Bit of a tear jerker and a bit hard to watch, but good outcome.

    I volunteer for an animal shelter once a week... and find it very fulfilling.

    It has certainly broadened my opinion on many dog breeds

    Greyhounds are a fave of mine... very underrated and sadly misunderstood breed by many

    Yes. The poor greyhound is generally only thought of as something to punt on down at the TAB, but they're a wonderful pet and companion.

    I'd recommend to anyone looking at getting a dog to visit the shelters, there's some great dogs in shelters that need a loving home.

    Whilst I agree that the video is disturbing, calves in most countries in pretty much all modern dairy farms are routinely taken from their mothers. All male calves and about a quarter of female calves are sent to the slaughterhouse within 12 hours of birth to become veal. The remaining female calves are retained to become milk producers themselves. These new heifers are cyclically artificially impregnated and come to term, only to have their calf taken from them immediately, and are then hooked up to produce excessive amounts of milk (often suffering mastitis) and then impregnated again over their 4-6 years at which point they are considered spent and sent to the slaughterhouse themselves.
    If you drink milk or enjoy any dairy products you basically facilitate this process.
