A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast; but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. ( The godly are concerned for the welfare of their animals.)
– Proverbs 2:10
Even the animals. know their owner and appreciate his care. – Isaiah 1:3

There are many deplorable and shockingly cruel things happening to dogs every day. Yet, countless volunteers are doing everything they can to rescue and find homes for dogs. They are indeed ascribing to the following:
Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
Whatever way you can make a contribution to the effort to save more un- wanted pets will also be helping to over come evil
Commit to the Lord what ever you do, and your plans will succeed.
God is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to hope or ask.
Look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.

DID YOU KNOW that
about 70% of all antibiotics sold in America are fed to farm animals just so they can be kept in overcrowded, stressful, unsanitary conditions? This practice results in antibiotic resistance, so the drugs are less effective for people and animals AND helps create power ful super germs. Please contact your U.S. senators and reps to ask them to support
S 1460/HR 293. which will curb non- therapeutic antibiotic use. The Capitolswitch board is as follows: 202-224-3121.

THE PROBLEM: MORE AND MORE DOGS BECOME HOMELESS EVERYDAY.
OTIS says: Too many of my friends are sad because they have no family of their own. They were given up, thrown away, like a useless thing instead of a living, feeling creature created by God. They have no one to walk and play with them, to love and care for them forever and ever. It scares me. There are so many. Please save one of my friends! You’ll never regret it. They willl love you back more than you’ll ever know.
In Chicago ALONE, some 24,092 dogs and cats were euthanized in 2004, according to PAWS, the largest no-kill shelter in the city. That doesn’t begin to count all the dogs and cats euthanized in the suburbs and throughout the state. Think how many animals that is in just five years.
4-5 MILLION dogs are euthanized nationwide each year. according to the Humane Society.
