Humans interact with animals on many levels: as beloved pets, as sources of entertainment in zoos, circuses and rodeos, as tools used in research, and as food sources. Claims that animals are being treated with the utmost care and kindness are too often untrue.

Many animals used to feed and entertain us lead lives of suffering, as well as contribute to the disastrous effects of climate change. Veterinarian Dr. Holly Cheever, a graduate of Harvard and Cornell universities, maintains a private practice and assists law enforcement in animal cruelty prosecution.
