Common Sense for Animals is most commonly recognized for our no-kill animal shelter, but it is so much more! Common Sense for Animals is a philosophy that encompasses all aspects of animal welfare. We look at the "big picture" encompassing the entire circle of life. Please visit our Wildlife and Environment site to learn more about our philosophy, our concepts, and meet our board of directors.

Who is Common Sense for Animals?

Common Sense for Animals is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1990 by Robert R. Blease, D.V.M. Our goal is to bring together people who share a certain common sense or fundamental principles regarding our heritage, and freedom of choice regarding food producing animals, companion pets, wildlife, research animals and the environment. We are not animal rightists. Instead Common Sense for Animals is committed to the entitlement of all animals to respect and dignity throughout their entire lives. We work to improve every area of human/animal relationships through education and community service.

Our Mission

The mission of Common Sense for Animals is to promote animal welfare through education and community service. We strive to educate all people, particularly children, as to what constitutes proper care and the importance of protecting our environment, wildlife, habitat and endangered species.
