3. Send an animal researcher Ray & Jean Greek's magnificent textbook regarding animal research: "Sacred Cows and Golden Geese." See: http://www.curedisease.com/book.html
4. Try a pint of chocolate vegan Soy Delicious ice cream.
5. In a small garden outside of your home, in an area the size of an average desk, you can grow six different varieties of lettuce to take to your local homeless shelter.
6. If you have lost a companion animal, or know a person who has, read a tribute to an activist Boston terrier who attended more animal rights demonstrations in his own short lifetime than most AR activists do in theirs.

1. Since 98% of animal abuse occurs in animal agriculture, boycotting animal products in your diet will help the most animals. The fork is the most dangerous Weapon of Mass Destruction when it comes to animals. Consider replacing all animal flesh, dairy, and eggs with the abundant delicious and healthy alternatives that are available today. We can choose compassion every time we have a meal. It's that easy!
2. Only buy household products and cosmetics from companies that do not test on animals. There are many animal-friendly companies. Check the labels for "cruelty-free" or "not tested on animals." Contact companies that still test on animals and tell them why you're not buying their products. Feedback is very important and can make a difference in policy changes. The consumer dollar is a very powerful thing!
