Poor little dog

It’s a beautiful Summer but always remember to take moments to think about what we can do to make the world a good place for animals to live in. Please pray for dear little Bobbie – his mouth was tied with electrical tape and his face swollen with scars when he was found by animal welfare officers. And remember to thank those people down at the SPCA and SAFE because without them so much suffering just goes unnoticed – they always appreciate donations for example of pet food, so next time we’re in supermarkets we have to think about the things we’re buying and whether we really need them and can replace it with for example something for a cat. We can go one lunch break without whatever we were going to have – we can even go without the meal altogether. If one cat misses out on one day it might be their last.
