Here are a few words from Andre: "I have always had compassion towards animals since I was a little girl, I always knew they deserve to be loved and protected. I did my first rescue when I was 7 years old. But it wasn’t until my dear love Matty came into my life 10 years ago that I felt like I had to be considerate showing love and respect for this little puppy. It lead my heart to feel the same to all animals. Causing me to became vegetarian after years of not knowing any better. I finally became 100% Vegan 5 years ago after going to a vegan festival and seeing all the horrors of the dairy and egg industries. Now I’m proudly an animals rights activist, environmentalist and a rescuer. I’m totally committed to protecting animals and my message is all about peace and compassion. Everyone of us can make the change we need for this planet, the animals, and for ourselves."
