What is animal rights?

Animal Rights, and the movement involved, is a philosophy based off of the fact that all animals are sentient beings. Because animals can feel pain that is both physical and psychological, many feel that their rights to life should be equal to that of humankind.

This means that animals should not be used for food, clothing, testing, or entertainment.

Companion animals, or 'pets', are still a grey area in the movement itself, however most activists agree that breeding should cease to exist, and that animals should be adopted into homes much like children. -where their care should be guaranteed.
