End Animal Cruelty

In a world burdened with increasing population, animals are bound to take a back seat. Nevertheless, the depths of cruelty that humanity can descend to are astonishing in their extremity.

I still have it but it’s collecting dust in the garage. I think I may dust it off soon and see if it still works.
It went from this:

  • Keep.
  • Sell.
  • Donate.
  • Trash.
