The past is prologue!

The Animals Voice has published more than 90 issues of its magazine from early 1982 (as a 4-page newsletter) to a full color, award-winning international publication by the late 1980s.

The first few issues of the magazine were printed on Laura Moretti’s typewriter (an IBM Selectric model), and from professionally generated headlines Laura snuck out of the newspapers she worked for at the time. Laura eventually quit the newspaper racket and opened her own graphic design studio in Chico, California, called ‘Just Your Type.’ There, after normal work hours, she produced the magazine using state-of-the-art printing equipment, and had the magazine printed at a small print business directly across the street from her shop.

After a visit to Chico (for lectures he gave at California State University, Chico—or Chico State as it’s locally known), Tom Regan spent time with Laura and learned she was about to fold the publication due to financial reasons, so he put her in touch with successful businessman Gil Michaels. On a promise he would publish the magazine internationally and in full color, Gil relocated Laura to Los Angeles and, together, they put The Animals Voice Magazine onto the world stage.

We owe our success to Tom—as well as a lot of our ‘voice.’ So herewith you will find the more than 90 issues of The Animals Voice Magazine in all of its incarnations over the past 30-plus years.

Our back issues document the history of a movement; at one time, the animal rights movement was the fastest-growing social cause in the world. We are proud to have played a role in its development. Thank you, Tom, for your belief in us and all of the work you helped us do.
