With soo much that animals give us, I couldn’t help but post a little about what’s going on out there in the world, both good and bad!
DEAD CAT TRIGGERS PROBE AT DALLAS SHELTER!
You see something like that, and then something like this happens:
And yet sooo many places continue to condemn critters!! Like here:
However, it doesn’t seem to keep animals from having more faith in us despite what we do to them. Like here:
AND THAT WAS IN ALASKA NO LESS!!!
I also give this as an example:
And then there are the times when they entertain us
( i love the expression on this pup’s face. so patient!)
or the capacity they have to care for each other:
(notice it’s a pit bull which so many find to be such an awful breed. ha! NOT!)
And yet, we continue to abuse them, neglect them, and take them for granted:
And it’s not just cats and dogs, but all sorts of animals as in this video:
AND STILL despite abuse, animals are still capable of loving of humans!
even if the journey back to trusting us takes awhile:
Often people will ask “why bother with animals when the real concern should be humans?” What so many refuse to connect here, is that animal abuse and neglect usually leads to human abuse or neglect. I just read an article last night about someone who sexually molested 3 puppies and one that had passed due to this. If you don’t think this same person has or will abuse some child or other human out there, you’re wrong. Often times, they start with animal cruelty and work up to abusing children and people.
(rest in peace Charity!)
There is so little that we understand about animals and so much that we can learn from them. It’s time for us to quit ignorring the abuse and neglect and give voice to those who despite our treatment of them, continue to love and give us so much! From institutionalized cruelty and death at some alleged “rescues” to the kid on the street who gets a kick out of pulling a kitten’s tail. The time is NOW to push for change!
(This blog is dedicated to the memory of Charity and all the other animals who have died due to our cruelty and lack of respect for the animal kingdom in general)
