pj johnson - Animal Advocate!

In this section you will find posts that promote animal welfare and others that sound an alarm to expose animal abuse. As an Animal Advocate I feel very strongly about the horrific abuse of sled dogs that is happening here in the north. You will find a candid article detailing my personal experience regarding what I consider a stain on the history of my homeland in the following section at ~~> Long-distance Sled Dog Racing Is Inhumane!


"“When I think of man’s inhumanity to the creatures with whom we share this planet my soul cries.”

"As guardians of the creatures with whom we share this planet I believe we all need to become animal advocates." -pj johnson Yukon Poet Laureate


“Any industry that involves the warehousing of animals also involves pain and suffering to defenseless living beings.” -pj johnson


"I believe children should be taught to honour and respect all living creatures and that animal advocacy should be taught in schools from the moment a child enters the education system."

I recently spoke out against the cruel 'sport' of long-distance sled dog races at Poetry In The Park during a visit to New Westminster B.C. If you care about the welfare of all creatures with whom we share this planet I invite you to join me in speaking out for the voiceless by sharing this video. To share it just hit the little arrow at the top of this video.  #BanIditQuest

You can help to expose the horror going on behind the scenes in long distance dog races:  sign a petition, share a post on Facebook, write a letter to the editor, contact your local MP or city council.  Join me on Twitter at https://twitter.com/pjjohnsonYukon and Retweet posts from there.
