Common Sense for Animals is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1990 by Robert R. Blease, D.V.M. Our goal is to bring together people who share a certain common sense or fundamental principles regarding our heritage, and freedom of choice regarding food producing animals, companion pets, wildlife, research animals and the environment. We are not animal rightists. Instead Common Sense for Animals is committed to the entitlement of all animals to respect and dignity throughout their entire lives. We work to improve every area of human/animal relationships through education and community service.
