CCC 2416 

Catholic Concern for Animals’ magazine The Ark was first published in 1937 when its editor, Dom Ambrose Agius OSB, said:
‘It is not only the cause of animals, their welfare and protection, which is here advocated.  It is the cause also of the good name of the Catholic Church, often attacked and seldom defended in this matter of the proper treatment of animals.’
