About this book

"My goals have always been to educate people about our treatment of animals. To reduce their suffering. To widen our circle of compassion to include non-human animals. To make animal industries visible, and accountable." Jo-Anne McArthur
– Jo-Anne McArthur

Drawn from thousands of photos taken over fifteen years, We Animals illustrates and investigates animals in the human environment: whether they're being used for food, fashion and entertainment, or research, or are being rescued to spend their remaining years in sanctuaries. Award-winning photojournalist and animal advocate Jo-Anne McArthur provides a valuable insight about our treatment of animals, makes animal industries visible and accountable, and widens our circle of compassion to include all sentient beings.

"Powerfully disturbing. These images take us to dark and hidden places visited by only a few determined and courageous individuals like Jo-Anne McArthur. They reveal the secret practices that many people will not want to know about. For the animals' sake, I beg that you will not only look but feel. For if we truly understand their suffering then, surely, we shall no longer condone it. And the heart-warming images at the end of the book show us the road to compassion."
– Dr. Jane Goodall, primatologist and author, Reason for Hope

"To look at Jo-Anne McArthur's gorgeous, heart-breaking photographs is to be reminded of the dignity and worthiness of all living creatures, and to be awakened to the vast, redemptive power of empathy."
– Barbara Gowdy, author, The White Bone

"This is a work of grace, direct from the soul. This groundbreaking book emanates integrity, hard work and a cosmos of empathy. May there be a tectonic shift of consciousness in our lifetime. For the Ghosts."
– Liz Marshall, filmmaker, The Ghosts in Our Machine
