So this week we have a new Prime Minister...
Whether or not the outcome of the election is what you hoped for, never forget that your 'vote' remains immensely powerful. And you need not wait three years to exercise it...
A vote today to walk past the cage eggs in the supermarket can save a hen from a life of misery in a battery cage.
A vote against factory farmed products will bring pigs confined in crates so small they cannot turn around, one important step closer to freedom.
A vote to bypass the pet shop and adopt your next four legged family member from an animal shelter will give a loving cat or dog a second chance.
A vote to treat yourself to dairy-free chocolate, yoghurt and ice creams will help save a dairy calf from a trip to the abattoir at just 5 days of age.
A vote to reduce or replace the animal products in your shopping trolley next week could save lives and help save the planet.
A vote to teach kindness to children will pay dividends for generations.
And a vote to stay the course with us and be a voice for our fellow species will speed the day when all animals are afforded the respect and compassion they so desperately deserve.
Thank you, in every way, on every day, for voting for a kinder world!
