When I mention that my firm, The Clapham Group, works on faith and animal welfare, I often get a quizzical look, followed by a line of questioning. Why does a conservative evangelical care about animals? Why should any of us worry about animals? For starters, prominent evangelicals have long cared for animals. John Wesley, William Wilberforce, C. S. Lewis, Hannah More, and Billy Graham all thought animal welfare was worth worrying about.
