Doggy quote of the month for May

“The final piece of verbal activism is this:  we need to  speak out in the defense of companion animals.  We are accountable for what we say and also for what we do not say.  Silence is a form of acquiescence.  Qui tacet consentire videtur.  He who is silent is taken to agree.”

-Jessica Pierce, author of Run, Spot, Run
