Give a stray a home

ON GOING URGENT 2014!!!!! PLEASE HELP! Kitten season is STILL upon us! Seems like it's all year long now! The Dutchess County SPCA is always in need of adoptions. Can you give a kitty a loving home? If so please call 845-452-7722 or visit us at The Dutchess County SPCA, 636 Violet Avenue, Hyde Park, NY 12538, just minutes away from Poughkeepsie, NY.

Or you can contact the shelter at this link DCSPCA. And remember they always need donations of canned food, towels (paper and terry cloth) kitty litter (clay kind only), wet and dry food, bleach and of course kitty toys and stuffed animals. Thank Mew!

In 1990, His Holiness John Paul II, proclaimed that the animals possess a soul and men must love and feel solidarity with our smaller brethren. He went on to say that all animals are fruit of the creative action of the Holy Spirit and merit respect and that they are as near to God as men are. Animal lovers everywhere were overjoyed!

The Holy Father reminded people that all living beings, including animals, came into being because of the breath of God. Animals possess the divine spark of life the living quality that is the soul and they are not inferior beings, as factory farmers, fur farmers, and others who exploit animals for profit would have us believe.

After he became Pope John Paul II, His Holiness went to Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis, and spoke of the saints love for animals. He declared, We, too, are called to a similar attitude.

We are so grateful that His Holiness spoke out so beautifully for animals and their souls, and we hope that his successors will also speak out for them with the same love and compassion. All Religions can honor his teachings by incorporating compassion for animals more fully into their own lives.
