I have been concerned about animal suffering ever since
I received my first puppy Peaches in 1975. She made me take a good look at the animal kingdom and I was shocked to see how badly we treat so many animals. At 77, I've been a vegan for the past 30 years and I thank God every day that I am. I am most disturbed at how little the Catholic Church and Christian churches generally give to concern re animal suffering in their ministry. I wrote to 350 bishops in 2001 and only 10-13 responded. I feel that the very least they can do is to instruct that the priests give one sermon a year on compassion to animals. I am still waiting for that sermon. I also belong to Catholic Concern for Animals - founded in England in 1929. (They are on the internet) I recently sent a sample copy of their bi-monthly publication called the ARK to the 8 Catholic bishops of Ohio. Only ONE kindly responded. Somehow we have to reach the Christian teaching magisterium. There is next to nothing re animal concerns and compassion for them. They basically believe that animals are the lesser of God's creation and that gives us the right to do anything we want to them. Way wrong. We need to change their mindsets. The animals are God's first and He expects us to treat them compassionately.

Fifteen Years of Animal Mercy I think a lot can be said about ourselves by the people whom we admire. I admire people of compassion and kindness. Nathan Runkle is such a person and it is amazing that he acted on his desire to help suffering farm animals at the tender age of 15.

Unbelievable Cruelty to Man's Best Friend Reading about animal cruelty can be very painful. We wonder how could such cruel people ever exist? But then on the opposite of the coin - thankfully, we find there are good and kind people as well who will do all they can to make up for the cruel ones.

Grace's Hell on Earth I will never understand how man can be so cruel to his fellow living creatures. What Grace and other cows endured was pure hell for most of them -if not all. I do believe that the world will be restored at the end of the world. There these brutalized cows and their calves will find peace and love as will all good people and all the other animals.

US Senate Midterm Report on the Animals If you care about legislation which will help the animals, I have copied the voting records of the US Senators for the Midterm of the 113th Congress. I hope this will entice you to check as well your US Representative's voting record as well in the Humane Scoreboard which can be found on the internet.

Pig Slamming and Dog Burning Anyone who has a respect for God's animal creation will be saddened by these two events. As bad as they are, the world is full of cruelty to animals. What can we do? Let's try to tackle each cruelty by doing something. And please don't discount prayer. That always brings me some relief. If enough of us would pray, I believe there would be less animal and human suffering.

Justice for Andra Grace Humans are guilty of cruelty to other humans, but I think they often are even more cruel to animals who can't defend themselves. Andra Grace, a young pit bull was one such and Nikko and others mentioned here were also cruelly treated brutally by men without consciences.

Sportsman Act/Filthy Chicken Rule I think most of us are unhappy with Congress. I believe this one is considered a do-nothing Congress. Truly this seems so re the much needed horse protection SAFE Act where there seems to be no movement at all on its passage as far as I can determine. However, thankfully, they did not pass the Sportsman Bill which would have benefited a precious few and been harmful to our public lands and wildlife.

Live Horses Eviscerated for Fun I thought I knew all the cruelty that some people of Spain and other Latino countries inflict on its innocent animals. Well, today I received yet another account of horror coming from the state of Yucatan, Mexico. I pray that this animal cruelty and all others there will stop. A big prayer because animal cruelty exists everywhere, but if enough people will pray - we might stop each horror - one by one.

A Dashed Hope I had hoped that President Barack Obama would be the compassionate president many of us felt our country needed. Maybe he is in some ways, but I am generally unimpressed in his lack of concern for suffering animals, although HSUS has noted some good moves for them recently through his efforts. Way too little in my opinion.

15 Years of Mercy for Animals Compassion Nathan Runkle is one of a kind and for that I am grateful. If you have heard about Mercy for Animals, then you have heard about him. We need many more compassionate people of his ilk because there is just too much cruelty to animals nationwide and of course world-wide as well. God cannot be pleased with our "stewardship."

Saving a 4H Pig I am always in awe and admiration of people who leave their comfort zone and do what they feel needs to be done. Laura Guttridge of Florida was one such lady, and she responded to the plight of Dragon, a 4H pig, who was probably headed for slaughter before she intervened.

Are We Inherently Cruel to Animals? I hope that everyone will consider this question. Maybe, it will cause us to rethink the way we treat animals generally, and especially those who suffer in the CAFOs to satisfy our meat and dairy lust. And then of course, people are often cruel to their companion animals - keeping them chained all day in all kinds of weather. Some even starve their animals to death. These occurrences are not as rare as you might think.

Try Being Positive? Well, I guess it makes sense to look for a silver lining if you can, but sadly, these are rare occasions in my opinion. There is just too much cruelty, injustice, and sadness in this world and both people and animals suffer. Please don't paint rosy pictures of pain and suffering. There is no justification for doing so.

Our Wild Horses and the President You know- my title could refer to almost any president of the recent past, but I had Pres. Obama in mind when I wrote this. However, none of the other presidents either to my knowledge fought to implement the 1971 Wild Horses and Burro Act which bequeathed them the lands of the West.

More Animal Cruelty For those who have never heard of Puppy Doe, you will be heart-broken to learn what happened to her. Only man sadly, is capable of such cruelty.

A Message to President Obama Re Diet Do we give enough thought re where our food comes from? Someone on the Catholic Vegetarian site thought not. Sadly, I disagree. By now we have all heard about the evils of factory farming and the horrors of slaughterhouses. However, George Carlin approaches diet from other ways which hopefully should make a lot of sense to those who are not concerned about animal suffering.
