The Every Living Thing campaign is built around a statement of principles about animal protection from faith leaders. The phrase “Every Living Thing” is drawn from a scriptural refrain that acknowledges a mandate from God to care for every living thing. In fact, 89% of faith leaders agree that we have a responsibility to speak out against animal cruelty. While we recognize that all living creatures deserve respect as part of God’s creation, we want to help focus attention on animals, as these creatures can be most subject to irresponsible and cruel treatment by humans.
"And the Earth, He has assigned it to all living creatures" (Quran 55:10).
