Taken from the Patreon link:

“Animal Culture Magazine aspires to educate, motivate, and celebrate by featuring exclusive and timely interviews with artists, writers, and other animal advocates, along with book reviews, humane education, visual culture information, cruelty-free product reviews, plant-based recipes, and legislative alerts. Our content is original and our interviews are exclusive. Currently the magazine is online and is published bimonthly. As our support grows we will have it available in print form.

Animal Culture addresses head-on the issues that animals confront—such as their lives in shelters and the harsh conditions they face in the food, entertainment, fashion, and research industries. The magazine shines a spotlight on those animals who are hidden, misunderstood, and not listened to—as well as those human beings who are fighting to protect them. ”
