When Cathy Kangas was growing up as a child in England, she saw a man kick a dog. “I remember being so outraged, my mother had to pull me away and stop me from creating a scene,” she said. Since that time, Cathy has turned her childhood outrage into a quest to help animals around the world. “They are defenseless. We as humans have a responsibility to treat them with respect. Someone has to speak for them,” she remarked.
