2009 Winner of the Animals as Other Nations Award ~ Janet Velenovsky , CPDT CDBC-TAC

“We patronize them for their incompetence, for their tragic fate of having take a form so far below ourselves. And therein we err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.”   - Henry Beston
