Rory Freedman, co-author of the #1 New York Times mega-seller Skinny Bitch, returns with a call-to-arms to all animal lovers.
So many of us call ourselves animal lovers and worship our dogs and cats—but we could be using that love as a force for helping all animals. Beg is a battle cry on their behalf, as well as an inspirational, empowering guide to what we can do to help them. With the same no-nonsense tone that made Skinny Bitch a multi-million copy success, Beg galvanizes us to change our choices and actions, and to love animals in a radical new way.

Physical pain for a dog is physical pain for a deer. In suffering, we are all equal. Can you not find another way to enjoy your time that doesn’t include hurting and killing animals? I’ve had conversations with hunters before. And even though it was difficult, I actively tried to be open and understanding. I can and

But after the first week and a half, there were a few chinks in my armor. Jane started telling me about some other friends who had gone through the same thing and how well it worked out. And how she had the perfect pet sitters who could come stay with Lucy at my place while I went backpacking in Peru. And the clincher: how she felt bad for

enact a ban on animal circuses in your town. It’s happening all over the world. And support nonanimal circuses that feature talented and willing human performers.

When buying products of any kind, check the labels to make sure they’re cruelty-free. No animal ingredients and no animal
