I don’t usually write two posts in one day but I wrote a poem that reflects some things I have been feeling lately and wanted to share it. I also thought since today is Father’s Day that anyone who has lost their father, doesn’t have one around, or doesn’t have a good relationship with theirs might be encouraged. We all have a Father available if we just look up.

When you hear about another shooting
And your emotions are starting to buildup
It’s easy to start feeling scared
But I am going to choose to look up
When you hear about another abused animal And you’re crying for that pup It’s easy to start feeling hopeless But I am going to choose to look upContinue reading →
I have a hard time when I see things like horse auctions, animals for sale at a flea market, and puppy mills where the focus is on making money. It may be the way the world is, but that doesn’t mean it’s right. There is a lot wrong with this world, I’m sure you agree with that.
We sell animals, living beings. I sit back and I think what would the creator of all the animals think of this? If I asked him “is this what you intended?” I think he would say “no.” If I asked him “does dominion over animals mean we can do whatever we please with them?”, I think he would say “no.” If I asked him “do you see animals as property?”, I think he would say “no.” Continue reading →
“But perhaps when we look at the connection between animal cruelty and human violence, we would focus more attention on those who abuse animals to prevent them from escalating to crimes against people.”
“This is a serious problem. It is also one that will only get worse if left unchecked.”
The tragedies are too much around our world lately, especially in the Unites States. When you think about what the answer is, does empathy towards animals come to mind? Probably not, but I encourage you to rethink that. Here is my latest poem… Continue reading →
How is the image above with the quote related to Halloween? It is because, unfortunately, there are a lot of people who like to hurt animals. On this night when there are a lot of pranksters out, your pet can become the victim of their pranks and trouble-making, which sometimes even results in killing animals. Continue reading →
Animal abuse, a very sad topic, but one that needs to be given attention.
Did you know animal abuse isn’t just someone hitting or hurting their own pet?
Did you know animals are being abused daily and we are allowing it?
On the packaging of items that are organic, such as cheese, it says “Pasture Raised Cows.” There are WAY less organic products available than non-organic products. So what is happening to the other cows?
Dog fighting. So incredibly cruel and certainly shows us one of the worst sides of human beings. Here is a definition I found online: Dog fighting is a type of blood sport generally defined as two game dogs against one another in a ring or a pit for the entertainment of the spectators or the gratification of the dogfighters, who are sometimes referred to as dogmen.
Pitbulls (and other dogs) are taken and beaten into becoming angry aggressive dogs. Then they are thrown into a ring with another dog to fight it out. They most certainly are terrified, confused, and in pain. Humans call this entertainment. Animals who are in misery tearing each other apart and this is entertainment. Not only entertainment, but humans make money off of the bets on which dog will “win.” (None of the dogs “win.” This is a lose, lose situation for them) Continue reading →
