Kathy Stevens-Proprietress of The Catskills Animal Sanctuary in Saugerties, New York. Her informed and diplomatic approach combined with the information on factory farming are the things that turned me into a Vegetarian in August of 07.

Last year, I became a vegeterian. PETA opened my eyes and heart to understanding the abuse, neglect and torture animals face for either food, fashion or testing. Although it pains me, I keep abreast on issues and share those stories to anyone.
