“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Being a Guardian means:
Making a conscious decision to call yourself a "guardian" rather than an "owner".
Making a lifetime commitment to your animal companions.
Never purchasing animals from pet shops or puppy farms, and wherever possible adopting from a rescue organisation or shelter.
Spaying or neutering your animals for their health and to prevent over-population.
Providing nutritious foods, fresh water and daily exercise for animals in your care.
Caring for the emotional needs of your animal companions.
Referring to them as "he" or "she" and not "it".
