Drawn from many photos taken over 15 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 lesson 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
