Unitarian Universalist Animal Ministry
Who are we? UUAM is a group of concerned Unitarian Universalists and UU friends who desire
to grow and express their faith as compassion towards all beings. We do this by
asking these fundamental religious questions: What does it mean to be human in mixed species communities?
What is our response to this understanding?
To answer these questions we draw on our UU principles and sources, traditions,
and congregational life to deepen our awareness of the interdependence of life.
We then support one another in not just learning how caring for all beings is a
moral and religious issue, but also engaging in concrete actions that bring
about change on the individual, family, congregational, community, and societal
We do this not just for nonhumans, but for ourselves and all of life. For as we
live a life of awareness based on our interdependence (UU 7th Principle) and the

deeply, and authentically. As we come to love our neighbors as ourselves, we
liberate not just others, but ourselves as well. More...

Quote of the Day
"But the time is coming when people will be amazed
that the human race existed so long before it
recognized that thoughtless injury to life is
incompatible with real ethics. Ethics is in its
unqualified form extended responsibility with regard
to everything that has life." - Albert Schweitzer
