Compassion can be contagious if you THINK about it

THINK compassionWe sit and look at some of the most horrifying images and videos of cruelty in our country. We read reports on dogs caught in traps, on wildlife being persecuted and studies on the ill-impact humans are having on ecosystems. We hear stories of pain, despair and frustration.

And we fight all of this negativity with one thing: compassion.

Compassion is contagious. When you reach out to others, full of love and hope, there is a greater chance of them listening and learning. This is how we manage all of our campaigns and how we try to affect change in the world around us.

Sometimes, it can be hard. And when we want to bang our heads against the wall, we ‘THINK’ before we speak. The graphic attached to this blog is a truly simple, yet effective way to question your own responses before saying (or posting) them.

T – Is it true?

H – Is it helpful?

I – Is it inspiring?

N – Is it necessary?

K – Is it kind?

Through all of the difficulties we face as advocates and animal lovers, please remember that compassion is what drives us – not anger or hate. And it is with compassion (along with solutions and open arms) that we have found victory, and will continue to find it.
