There are animal welfare vegans and animal only-fight-against-other-vegans abolitionist vegans. V-EGANISM is neither. Just as there are positive things and negative things about conservatives and liberals, there are positive things and negative things about welfarists and abolitionists. V-EGANISM avoids all 4 "political parties", and remains as an independent in thoughts and actions, only choosing what is right and just for animals, humans, and the environment. V-EGANISM however does have a mission statement which is how the founder of veganism, Donald Watson, originally coined the word's definition. It was a perfect definition then and it still is a perfect definition now! So the following paragraph is V-EGANISM's official Mission Statement--and nothing more, nothing less, we are simply called, "Vegan Activists", with no additives:

"V-EGANISM educates people and helps people and animals regarding the political and social justice cause, Veganism, which is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude--as far as is possible and practical--all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, cosmetics, household products, entertainment, service or any other purpose; and by extension, promotes the development and use of animal-free alternatives for the benefit of humans, animals, and the environment."

Animals and the Spirit World

Animals have detected earthquake and disasters hours or even days before they occurred and some species have travelled impressive distances to be reunited with lost family members. If they have these incredible abilities, it seems quite possible that they could potentially be able to interact with the spirit world. Animals are intelligent and often demonstrate intuitions and instincts that humans don’t always appear to have.

Rupert Sheldrake, author of Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home (Three Rivers Press, 1999), believes that animals have abilities that humans may have possessed at one time, but somehow most of us lost. Through his extensive research, he has concluded that there are at least three major categories of unexplained perceptiveness by animals:

Telepathy - a psychic connection that some pets may have with their owners through connections Sheldrake calls "morphic fields." It is this ability that enables pets to "know" when their owners are on their way home. In the section of Sheldrake's book focusing on telepathy, he asserts that this ability arises from the strong bond that develops between human and family animal companion. He relates several anecdotes from animal guardians who believe their animals are psychically picking up their intentions.

The Sense of Direction - this ability accounts for the "incredible travels" some animals make to be with their owners, including homing pigeons. There are many stories told...animals that have made long, sometime arduous journeys to be reunited with their owners are some of the most incredible and compelling cases for unexplained animal powers.

Premonitions - this may explain why some animals seem to know when earthquakes and other events are about to occur. In this section of the book, Sheldrake explores the possibility that some animals can forewarn us of events that are about to occur. Some animal companions seem to know when their owners are about to have epileptic seizures.
