I always loved animals, and as a kid I grew up with several cats around. Later on, I became a "feeding station" for the many feral cats roaming the streets of my neighborhood. But it wasn't until 2006 that my eyes opened to the suffering of all animals, and I became vegetarian. A few years later I went vegan. And in 2011 I started my own animal rights organization - Our Planet. Theirs Too. - and created the "National Animal Rights Day" in the US, and the "Declaration of Animal Rights"!
