What I Want to Do:


 
I AM
THE VOICE


I am the voice of the voiceless
And through the dumb shall speak
Till the deaf world's ear be made to hear
The wrongs of the wordless weak

From street, from cage, from kennel,
From stable and zoo, the wail
of my tortured kin proclaims the sin
Of the mighty against the frail

Oh, shame on the mothers of mortals
who have not stooped to teach
of the sorrows that lies in dear, dumb eyes
The sorrow that has no speech

For I am my brother's keeper,
and I shall fight his fight
and speak the word for beast and bird
till the world shall set things right

-Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I AM AN ANIMAL RESCUER
AUTHOR UNKNOWN


My job is to assist God's creatures. …
I was born with the drive to fulfill their needs.
I take in helpless, unwanted, homeless creatures
without planning or selection.
 
I have bought cat food with my last dime.
I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand.
I have hugged someone vicious and afraid.
I have fallen in love a thousand times.
And I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body too many times to count.
 
I have Animal Friends and friends who have animal friends.
I don't even use the word "pet".
I notice those lost on the road side and my heart aches.
I will hand raise a field mouse and make friends with a vulture.
 
I know of no creature unworthy of my time.
I want to live forever if there aren't animals in Heaven,
but I believe there are.
Why would God make something so perfect
and leave it behind?
 
Some may think we are masters of the animals,
but the animals have mastered themselves. ..
something people still haven't learned.

War and abuse make me hurt for the world,
but a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for mankind.
We are a quiet but determined army
 and we are making a difference every day.
 
There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan,
nothing more rewarding than saving a life,
no higher recognition than watching them thrive.
There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play who, only days ago, was too weak to eat.
 
By the love of those who I've been privileged to rescue,
I have been rescued.
I know what true unconditional love really is,
for I've seen it shining in the eyes of so many, grateful for so little.

I am an Animal Rescuer.
My work is never done.
My home is never quiet.
My wallet is always empty,
but my heart is always full.

Break The Chain
by Janet Riddle

New life enters upon the earth
but greed fouls the precious birth
He takes his first baby breath
unknowing of his destined death..

Mother protects him all she can
but she's powerless against man
As soon as he was able to stand
he met the harsh human hand..

To the dairy farm he is waste
mother's milk he'll never... taste
All of her milk we humans take
he's denied mother for dairy's sake..

He arrives at the farm for veal
from innocent birth to someone's meal
In his lonely, barren crate he cries
hopelessness and terror in his eyes..

His would-be loving mother
has frantically lost another
Her relentless bellows easily heard
and her anguish clear without word..

Dairy kills ~ that's the deal
but the solution is to boycott veal?
Break the chain at its start
don't have dairy ~ have a heart!

About Me Jesus was a vegetarian....."

“Verily, I say to you, I Am come into the world, in order to put an end to all blood offerings and to the eating of the flesh of animals and birds that are slain by men.”

~ Jesus at Gospel of the Holy Twelve

I try to save abandoned, lost, abused and forgotten animals. I am a vegetarian, and believe killing animals for food, or any other reason, is murder, the same as we would view the murder of a fellow human being. All creatures have a soul and a right to life, free of fear, pain and suffering. We must learn to share the earth with our animal brothers. We do not own the earth, nor any of the creatures upon her.

I have rescued many animals in my life, and will continue to rescue and defend animals until my last breath. I have also been a wildlife rehabilitator.

I am clairvoyant and commune with nature. We are bound to this earth.....our mother.... and all her creatures, great and small.

"We can not have peace among men whose hearts find delight in killing any living creature" ~ Rachel Carson

"If we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and we do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the guilt" ~Ann Sewell

"We did not weave the web of life; we are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things connect." ~ Chief Seattle

"The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different." ~Hippocrates

"We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the devil in human form" ~William Ralph Inage

"How can you look into the eyes of an animal, and believe there is no soul?"

"You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." - Anatole France

"As custodians of the planet it is our responsibility to deal with all species with kindness, love, and compassion. That these animals suffer through human cruelty is beyond understanding" ~ Richard Gere
What Gives Me Hope That there are many good people who want to come together for the benefit of the animals, in our fight against the war on God's creatures.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by "I hope to make people realize how totally helpless animals are, how dependent on us, trusting as a child must be, that we will be kind and take care of their needs ...[they] are an obligation put upon us, a responsibility we have no right to neglect, nor to violate by cruelty" ~James Herriot
