Spending My Tenderness on Animals
As a vulnerable girl at a remote commune,
I sought solace from horses, goats, even a bear cub.
Today’s dark times have sent me their way again.

it’s about doing the best thing possible for the animal.”
Animal rights activist and filmmaker Ryuji Chua
discusses changing his views
to see animals as a someone and not a something,
analyzing evidence that shows fish feel,
play and have families just like cats and dogs,
and getting informed on the suffering humans cause
when farming animals for food.

Crannog - the woman who helps animals to die with dignity
Video The Guardian 12 July 2019
Alexis has a life-threatening disease.
She spends her time
in the wooded expanse of northern Scotland
where she takes care of dozens of others
who are also sick, wounded or dying.
Some have terminal cancer,
some were about to be killed
because of their disabilities,
some were saved from slaughterhouses.
Alexis provides palliative care for animals.
Crannog follows Alexis as she tirelessly tries
to nurse a neglected sheep back to health.
A quiet reflection on kindness in the face of death,
the film intimately explores the fragility and strength
that comes from dedicating your life to the care of others.

and to protect species from going extinct

Rush may have been the longest-lived thoroughbred in American history
when he died at 39.
For three decades, his owner said,
“He would fight for me and I would fight for him.”

of the blossoming of a heartfelt male friendship,
and one told with sublime gentleness and touching compassion.

in the 1820s Northwest,

but their tenuous plan to make their fortune on the frontier

An humans are out of dere mind,

Dey all hav a right to a life,
Not to be caged up an genetically made up
By any farmer an his wife."
