Rory Freedman, co-author of the #1 New York Times mega-seller Skinny Bitch, returns with a call-to-arms to all animal lovers.
So many of us call ourselves animal lovers and worship our dogs and cats—but we could be using that love as a force for helping all animals. Beg is a battle cry on their behalf, as well as an inspirational, empowering guide to what we can do to help them. With the same no-nonsense tone that made Skinny Bitch a multi-million copy success, Beg galvanizes us to change our choices and actions, and to love animals in a radical new way.

Understandably, after weeks of neglect and travel, many are unable to walk off the ship to be loaded onto trucks, so they’re forcibly dragged by their ears or legs.200 And as if their lives hadn’t been hard enough, some are driven miles and miles away, forcibly dragged off the trucks and into slaughterhouses, where they can have their

Gail Eisnitz is the chief investigator for the Humane Farming Association. She traveled the country interviewing dozens of workers from different slaughterhouses, and chronicled the experience in her book Slaughterhouse. Every single person she interviewed admitted to abusing the animals or neglecting to report those who

parent them is wrong. Don’t be a crate-head. Cramming your dog into a cage for ten straight hours is wrong, wrong, wrong. Hire a dog walker, work something out with a friend or neighbor, or share custody with your ex. Dogs deserve better than home-jail. Don’t keep your dog tied up. It’s literally maddening to them, and can incite frustration, anger, and even attacks. All justifiably so. Build a fenced-in yard, take them to off-leash parks, or figure something else out. Don’t make them hold

the pain of what we’ll witness. None of us wants those feelings and images and memories ingrained in our heads. So we continue to pretend we’re not part of the problem, and that the problem doesn’t even exist, and look at my brand new puppy I just bought, isn’t he cute? It’s been said that fear is actually False Evidence Appearing Real. So here’s the real evidence to eradicate the fear: Fact: Purebreds get dumped at shelters, just like mixed breeds do.
