Organizations that Support Open Animal Rescues
Animal Liberation Victoria, Inc (ALV) is an abolitionist organisation dedicated to abolishing the property status of animals.
Their maintain a strong uncompromising stance regarding animal rights. They promote veganism at all times and refuse to have anything to do with selling out animals.... like promoting free range eggs and meat.
Animal Liberation Victoria's STATEMENT OF PURPOSES are as follows:
TO ABOLISH THE PROPERTY STATUS OF ANIMALS Animal Liberation Victoria endorses an animal rights position which maintains that all sentient beings, regardless of species, have the right to be treated as independent entities, and not as the property of others.
TO ABOLISH, AND NOT MERELY REGULATE, INSTITUTIONLISED ANIMAL EXPLOITATION Animal Liberation Victoria supports only those campaigns and positions that explicitly promote the abolitionist agenda, placing primary emphasis on animals in factory farms and abattoirs.
We recognise we will not abolish animal exploitation and the property status of animals overnight, but will encourage at all times the adoption of a vegan lifestyle as the most appropriate course to achieve these aims.
TO ABOLISH HUMAN'S SPECIEST ATTITUDES AND PRACTICES
Just as we reject racism, sexism, ageism and homophobia, we reject speciesism.
The species of sentient beings is no more a reason to deny any individual the basic right not to be the property of others, than is race, sex, age or sexual orientation a reason to deny membership in the moral community to other humans.
TO ENCOURAGE AND NURTURE ANIMAL RIGHTS EDUCATION Animal Liberation Victoria commits itself to public education concerning the rights of animals and the importance of defending any other animal whose language communication is different to our own, and who are thus unable to 'speak' for themselves.
TO ENDORSE THE PRINCIPLE OF NON-VIOLENCE
All campaigns and positions of Animal Liberation Victoria use non-violence as their guiding principle and rule of operation. Our work fosters giving aid and rescue to any animal who is suffering in pain and left unattended.
