Great Animal Lovers …


Some people spared their life time by caring or creating love towards fellow animals.
We can’t forget .....
BUDDHA - Buddhism considers non-human life to be Divine just as is human life. Animals are seen to be an evolving kingdom of living creatures destined in time to attain perfect enlightenment. Buddhists were the first to build hospitals for the care of sick and injured animals.
