Be our Voice!

Be Our Voice was created as a result of the true events of the largest animal cruelty case to date that unfolded in July of 2010 in Harris County, Texas.  Be Our Voice began as a song inspired by this animal cruelty case and progressed to a video.  BeOurVoice.org was launched on March 1, 2011 in an attempt to end animal cruelty to birds by educating the public on how to recognize the signs of cruelty and how and where to report it.

Please do something today to make a difference, one small act of kindness at a time can change the world.

Passive Cruelty and Active Cruelty are the two types of cruelty. Passive cruelty involves cases of neglect (starvation, dehydration from lack of water, etc), whereas active cruelty involves intent to cause harm to an animal (malicious physical abuse). When you see possible cases of neglect or abuse, it is important to document your phone calls, complaints, and take clear photos.

  1. These creatures mate for life, fret with broken hearts, live to 80+ years (cockatoos) born to fly & forrage over miles all day long. Never could any size “cage” replace that. Imagine yourself living your whole life without using your legs- this is how captive birds exist never properly moving around using thier bodies. Most other creatures its a crime to treat like this, I believe owners should by law demonstrate thier plans for the birds care in decades time, most will out-live the owners, laws are needed across these areas as this is todays justified animal neglect crisis. All persons dealing with cockatoos should be registered, prices raised to reduce mass consumerism and fund conservation. Only solid rules can change perceptions- these are “wild” animals regardless of how they were raised, all deserve rights equal to that of other protected species.
