Please...Join the fight against Animal Abuse of ANY kind.

The Bible speaks of a time when men and all the animals of the earth will  live together in total peace.  That time is not now, but we can do a little bit to make it so...Treat animals with kindness and love and they in turn will treat you the same.

Isaiah 11:

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. 
And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together:and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. 
And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. 
They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledgeof the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
With tears in my eyes I watched in horror as a man beat a baby elephant with a stick to make it do as he wanted it to do.  The baby was chained to a tree with a heavy shackle around it's leg.  I wondered to myself, how could anyone watch this and not be appalled?  Worse yet, how could anyone do this and not feel anything?  How could a human being inflict this kind of pain on any living thing and go home and sleep peacefully at night?  This was a show that I happen to stop at when watching T.V. one night about a week ago (7-12-99).  It was then that I  decided to include a page on my web site to help stop the abuse of animals.  This is a world wide problem.  In the last few days I have spent many hours researching the abuse of animals, I feel that this abuse needs to be  stopped.

The following pages contain links to sites that will give you information about how you can help.  Some will take you to sites with graphic stories and or videos detailing the abuse that takes place.  The only way to get the full impact is to read and watch what has happened. Please, do not close your eyes to this problem.


IMAGINE THIS:

Your child wants a pet, you go to the pet store and buy a puppy.  You take the puppy home, feed him, water him, teach him tricks...he is so cute!! He sleeps beside you in your bed, you walk him, you play with him, you buy him new toys.

One day you turn around and your cute puppy has become a big, maybe not so cute dog, pretty soon he is chained up in the back yard and forgotten.  Dogs left alone soon become mean and unmanagable.  Pet owners end up putting the animal to sleep or taking them to an animal shelter where they will most likely be put to sleep. Does this sound unreal?  Well, its not. 

The cruel treatment of animals is not limited to big animals. It extends from the smallest of birds to the largest of whales.  We have seen this in examples of birds being cramped in cages and boxes to be shipped to pet stores. Many die before reaching their destination.

In recent years we have seen the affects on a whale that was mistreated when kept in a pen that was to small.  The unfair treatment of animals extends from the puppy mills we have seen on television to the trainers of circus animals.  Animals feel physical and mental pain just as we do.
