Sunday Pause (Paws): The Job Given To Us

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take a little time to think about the job given to us in regards to animals.

I‘m so busy with packing that I will once again be keeping this post short. I wrote a short poem and created the following image. I hope you enjoy.

God’s creation entrusted to us 
There’s really nothing to discuss
He made it clear and said to care
For all his animals everywhere

Sunday Pause (Paws): Just Ask

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and ask for help.

We all need to ask for help sometimes, but it isn’t an easy thing to do. I am going through a very trying time with purchasing a townhome. Through the process there have been ups & downs, highs & lows, and feeling like I’m going crazy. It’s still not over (help).

Even though I fall to my knees in tears at times and beg God to help when it doesn’t feel like he is, I really know he is. Maybe it’s me not listening to him.

This is the same for helping animals. Sometimes it feels like we’re getting nowhere, but we are. Sometimes we feel like God isn’t helping us with this, but he is.

I pray all the time for no more abuse
But then comes another horrible case
It brings me to tears and I feel helpless
So I ask for help in my quiet place

Sunday Pause (Paws): For Farm Animals

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and take in the truth, even if it may be difficult.

I like to try to keep most of my Sunday posts more on the light side. But my blog is about being a voice for animals. So, I apologize, but today I am writing about a serious topic…the treatment of farm animals.

It came across my Facebook Newsfeed about the undercover investigation at Fair Oaks Farms and the abuse of calves there recorded on video. I couldn’t bring myself to watch the videos. I got the gist from all of the headlines and comments.

Abuse of farm animals is not uncommon. They get away with it because it happens behind closed doors. We see the “happy cow” commercials, but I don’t think there are a whole lot of actual happy cows on factory farms. Even the word “factory” gets me. Animals are not objects to live in a factory. God made them to live, play, graze, move, and BE with other animals. He didn’t create them for abuse and mistreatment by his other creation…us. This has to stop!

Sunday Pause (Paws): Hello “Be Kind To Animals” Week

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and welcome the first day of “Be Kind To Animals Week”.

I wanted to honor this recognition of animals with this Sunday’s post. But we at AAFBT think you should always be kind to animals. In fact we now have a mission statement and here is Cino as “Animal Paladin” to introduce it to you…

I like to say to help animals it takes me, it takes you, it takes WE and that is so true. Here is a great example. A coworker of mine was dropping her son off at school and there on the edge of the sidewalk was a little duck in her words “crying.” He was laying on his side crying and shivering Continue reading

WWJND?

WWJD became popular in the US in the 1990’s. It was all the rage among Christians. It stands for “What Would Jesus Do?”

This Easter weekend I was thinking about animals and WWJND…”What Would Jesus Not Do?”

Just one of the many things us humans are doing wrong. We are definitely a society in need of saving. Thank God he did just that! This is what Easter is all about.

Chocolate Rabbits Instead of Real Rabbits

Easter is almost here and sadly many people think a rabbit is a great gift for their child. They are not a thing that should be thought of as a gift or object to be given for a holiday.

Sadly most people don’t do the research to find out what is required to have a rabbit as a pet. They actually require A LOT of care to be happy and healthy. I am an animal advocate and I had no idea how much care they required until a friend of mine adopted one.

Because of the impulsiveness to get a rabbit on Easter people aren’t educated on the proper care care which leads to a lot of neglected, returned, or abandoned rabbits.

Sunday Pause (Paws): Animal Paladin

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, read a little poem and meet Cino as dun, dun, dun, dun…Animal Paladin!

(In case you don’t know, because I didn’t, Paladin means leading champion of a cause, hero, devoted to kindness.)

TRYING TO SAVE THE DAY

Animals of all sizes and shapes,
The dogs, cats, lions, and apes
Intended by God to be blessed,
And instead are being oppressed
Listen up, don’t you fear,
The AAFBT team is here
With Super Animal Paladin,
Doing a lot of the battling
