Guest post by Syed Rizvi, cure President and Founder, treatment Engineers and Scientists for Animal Rights, story San Jose, CA

The mentality that conveys the message that we should help humans before we help animals is the same mentality among some who say we in America should help the poor in America before we help the poor in the third world countries.
