Summary The animal rights movement encompasses a wide range of sometimes-competing agendas from vegetarianism to animal liberation. For people for whom pets are family members - animal lovers outside the fray - extremist positions in which all human-animal interaction is suspect often discourage involvement in the movement to end cruelty to other beings. The author argues that in order to achieve such goals as ending animal testing and factory farming, activists need to be better attuned to the profound emotional, even spiritual, attachment that many people have to animals.
