A very interesting article re: Sentient, the veterinary institute for animal ethics http://www.sentient.org.au/Sentient/Home.html :

Katherine decided she wanted to be a vet when she was six years old.
It wasn't just a desire to work with the cute and the cuddly that sparked her interest, but the hope of giving animals a voice.
"I thought it would give me the best background [to] I guess be able to speak for animals with some degree of authority," she says.
As the cofounder and president of organisation Sentient, she's fulfilling that goal.
The institution represents veterinarians on animal ethics.
Katherine says she established Sentient with fellow colleagues last year because they didn't feel there was an adequate platform for vets to speak out about the treatment of animals�
