Thanks Kim! It's nice for me to know there are others out there too! And yes, it's something that bothers me every day, for the past five years of my life (that's when I first went vegetarian and started learning about animal cruelty). I wish that more people realized that animals have feelings, and families, and a lot of the same things we have. It's probably what I am most passionate about in life. Well I definitely recommend trying a rescue when you are ready! I have only done three: one successful, one death the night I got him :(, and one I got today that I am really hoping will make it. From my minimal experience, it's really rewarding, but hard when things don't go the way you hoped. But every fish counts!
Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!
