HOT SPRINGS - Chief Seattle (1786-1866) of the Suquamish and Duwamish Native American in the Pacific Northwest was once quoted as saying, "What we do to the animals, we do to ourselves," said .
Violence against animals, in either wilderness or domestic settings, is often an indicator of violence within the family. The two are unequivocally intertwined.
The Humane Society of the United States is getting on board to help bridge the communication and education gaps involving personal responsibility toward the animal kingdom.
Hot Springs residents can do their part by co-opting with the local Humane Society and Tonia's Animal Sanctuary to stand up for animal and human rights.
