Discussion on “Our Relationship with Animals”
Does our relationship with animals contribute to peace or violence in the world at large?
How does the financial crisis affect decisions about compassionate care?
How does our concept of “ownership” affect our treatment of animals?
Do animals have a spiritual life?
