Beauty Unseen

I used to love snow. Snow meant snowmen, sledding, snowball fights, and snow forts. Best of all snowstorms meant no school and playing with friends outdoors all day. I didn’t care about the cold. I’d come inside with my fingers...

When we think of oppression, should we be including non-human 
animals?

Oppression is the act of using power over another for control or unjust treatment. Humans have a long history of oppressing others, whether the oppressed be handicapped or disabled people, Native Americans, African Americans, women, the poor, LGTBQ, or Jews,...

In our fast-paced, human-centered lives, we are often oblivious to the remarkable capacities of so many animal species, like those of our underwater cousins: fish. I have spent years exploring the inner lives of fish. What I’ve uncovered indicates that...

Letters From Our Colleagues

I see your incredible effort as making a powerful difference—again. A website is a wonderful thing, to be used to compliment printed materials, such as newspapers. Call me old-fashioned, but it seems there is (still) something more credible about printing, and I think this will remain for some time. On top of that, you can’t throw an entire website on someone’s desk with a nice big thump.
Marion Churchill, Compassion for Camden

The Animals Voice Magazine presents animal defense issues to mainstream society in a compelling way. It is an effective tool in helping change the public’s mind about the way our society treats its non-humans. It is highly recommended reading for people who care about changing the conditions for non-human animals.
Ingrid Newkirk, co-founder, PETA

There are few causes for celebration in the struggle for animal rights. The Animals Voice Magazine is that rare exception. Finally, we have the means to achieve the ends that all informed and compassionate people seek: a better world for animals, and a fuller life for all those who speak and act on their behalf. If the animal protection community fails to make this venture a success, it should hang its head in shame.
Tom Regan

Bravo! I am still (happily) reeling from the impact of your state-of-the-art comprehensive publication. it surely exceeds all our expectations.
Gretchen Wyler

Today the animals of the world have a new and colorful friend. The Animals Voice Magazine speaks eloquently, effectively, and beautifully on their behalf.
Peter Singer

Your new format may offer fewer pages, but the quality of your work and the concern for the animals are still very much in evidence. Long may you publish!
J.D. Jackson, Bunny Huggers Gazette

I am so excited to learn The Animals Voice Magazine will be back in print. It was the finest—in a league all of its own. Good luck!
Allison Lance Watson, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

I have been working in these recent months to encourage people to channel finances toward The Animals Voice Magazine. I wanted you to be aware that I am sending you, besides my best wishes for continuing success, a donation to the ARIES Foundation, which will match it with an equal amount and forward it to you. To say that I extend to you my best wishes for continuing success is an understatement.
Michael Klaper, M.D.

I have always been fond of animals but I have always been very busy with my clinic and I had never given much thought to the idea of animal rights. Last summer, I went into a bookshop here in Hong Kong to buy a birthday card and I glanced down the magazine racks. My eye was caught by a very unhappy looking dog on the cover of The Animals Voice Magazine. I bought it and read it and discovered how ignorant I had been and how much suffering has been allowed to continue because of the ignorance of myself and so many others. I then started Hong Kong’s first animal rights group after being inspired by The Animals Voice Magazine to DO something.

From Our Detractors

If nothing has got you fired up yet to stop the animal rights movement, then this [magazine] should.
Rich Faler, Editor, Trapper and Predator Caller, 1990

I do not wish to renew my subscription to The Animals Voice Magazine since your report about the ALF’s break-in at Michigan State University was very one-sided. I now question the accuracy of your other news coverage. Your magazine has become too radical for this vegetarian. —L.N., Michigan
Editor’s Reply: The day we become objective about the plight of animals—and those fighting with their hearts and souls on their behalf—will be the day all exploitation of animals has ceased. Give us a break! This isn’t about standard journalism, nor has it ever been. It’s about saving animals’ lives and ending their suffering. Our fight is their fight—and their agony and their cries are—yes—one-sided. Sorry we lost your subscription, but thanks for the compliment anyway!

A reader who said I needed indoctrination in man’s inhumanity to wildlife, sent me a copy of a perfectly obscene magazine called The Animals Voice. Its exposé of the fur business is the strongest propaganda I’ve seen on the subject in years…
Fred Le Brun, Recreational Hunter, Sunday Times Union, Albany, New York


From Our Heroes

We are soldiers in the U.S. Army, currently in Kuwait, taking part in Operation Desert Storm. We have served our country with pride in two conflicts (Panama and Kuwait) but after receiving your magazine, we are sickened to learn that we risked our lives for a nation which, for the most part, condones the unimaginable horrors revealed in The Animals Voice Magazine (December 1990; “Acts of Violence” [ed. our second graphic vivisection issue]). Noreiga and Hussein have nothing on these charlatans and butchers called vivisectors. We are prepared to combat them just as we combated the lesser threats of foreign dictators. But this is a more important and personal war, not a goal imposed on us by our “superiors.” No foreign dictator ever posed the threat of ripping the animals we love into unrecognizable pieces. We will spread the word, making our voices heard. The days of torture posing as research are numbered. Thank you for opening our eyes. Sometimes a slap in the face is the only thing that will wake people up.

From Our Readers

I was really moved by the latest issue of The Animals Voice Magazine and I just wanted to let you know how glad I am that you’re back. The writing and the pictures, the quotes and the editorials, really reach that raw, hurting place in me, and get the tears flowing. I’m not complaining. The tears are healing, and afterward, I feel a surge of renewed dedication to the movement and to the animals. Not much else moves me the way The Animals Voice Magazine does, and I want to say “Thanks!” for your incredible publication.
—Shannon Lentz

We love you, we need you, and thank you for keeping up our strength!
Cynthia Jo Woodin

March became for me a time of change, a time of knowledge, a time of tears, a period of resolution. This was the month I first read your magazine and was introduced to the animal rights movement… I salute you for your courage, for your knowledge, for your perseverance. Most of all, I thank you for lighting my darkness, for presenting me with the awareness to initiate change! I have joined you in your journey.
Bonnie Jennings

…You have been a lifeline to me in the animal rights movement and helped me go vegetarian and cruelty-free. Thank you.
Lanie Wagenburg

There are not the words to express how much good this magazine is doing.
Elizabeth DeVine

… My husband thanked your magazine on his album because you folks kept us informed and helped us talk to others…
Claudie & Michael Franks

I just founded my own organization after being inspired by an article in your magazine about a place in California called “Living Free”…
Beth Blizzard

In the name of everything that’s good, just, fair, right—and utterly crucial for the animals—you must keep publishing The Animals Voice Magazine. It is like a ray of hope and light in the abyss of human tyranny.
Pamela Zema

People ask me why I read about vivisection and animal abuse, and watch the awful films, and bring up the subject with anyone who seems the slightest bit sympathetic. It’s because I want to know what’s happening… And when I learn of people torturing animals in ways that are unimaginable to one unfamiliar with the horrors of vivisection, experimenting in new forms of death under the auspices of saving lives, I don’t want to close my eyes and pretend that nothing’s wrong, or that because they’re “scientists” they must know what they’re doing. I know better. I’ve watched the films. I’ve read the books. And it’s not something that my own conscience will allow me to ignore. God bless your magazine.
Kirstin Dewey

The Animals Voice Magazine is able to use the tools normally confined to the mass media: glossy pages, a thick cover, eye-catching layout, superb color photography and an expensive-looking format. Also the advertisements give the reader no pause since they continue the urgency of the articles…
Sanford Hohauser

I would like to express my most sincere thanks for the excellent layout you gave the article on the dog eating situation in Korea. The visual quality as well as the well-related contents pleased me to no end. People like you give me the courage to carry on with my work even when times are difficult, as they are often. Thank you again for your caring and your hard work. My best wishes for you and continued success with The Animals Voice Magazine.
Anonymous

Thank you for your recent “sarcastic” commentary… It made me feel ashamed about calling myself a vegetarian while still eating chicken and fish! I have to stop being a hypocrite!
Jeanine L. Parsons

As a new subscriber, I want to tell you how much your magazine makes me cry, depresses me and haunts me for days after reading it. But I wouldn’t want it otherwise. When the anger, tears and hurt boil up inside me, I know my heart is still alive. Thank you for a beautiful and moving publication. You truly speak for the animals and for those of us who care and love them.
Linda Medura

The Animals Voice Magazine is the best thing that has happened to the animal rights movement.
Beverly Buckingham

What a beautiful, horrifying, necessary, awful, poignant, perfect magazine.
