About

Thanks for visiting my Patreon page. My name is Prya Bisambhar and I'm a journalist from Holland. I've always loved animals and feel strongly that the way we 'handle' animals in our world is unacceptable.

I created the animal news website The Animal Reader to hopefully encourage people to question whether it's ethically and morally correct to treat animals this way.  

We've accepted that animals can be hurt and killed for food, clothes and medical tests. Animals are treated as products and not living beings, and that needs to stop.

Why The Animal Reader?
There's a problem with our society. The living species 'human' feels superior to the living species 'animal'.  We need to make humans aware that we can’t keep treating animals like this. That it is all of our responsibility to end this cruelty.

How do we get people to feel more compassion for animals?
The answer is responsible and ethical media who care about animals the same way they do about people. It's a given fact that any news about humans gets more coverage than news about animals.

We want to change that and believe people will have more compassion towards animals if the media talks about them as living beings and not things.

The Animal Reader wants to create a platform where animal lives are the focus of news stories.

We need to attract more journalists with an animal-focused view. For that, we need your help.

The money we get from Patreon, will only be used to create content.
