World Animal Day Oct 4 Tune In To REDFM104.9

I shall be speaking on REDFM104.9 tomorrow on the Breakfast Show 8:00 am to 9:00 am in conjunction with World Animal Day that falls on October 4th every year.

In the evening St.Ignatius Church in Kelana Jaya is having an Animal Blessing ceremony for pets. I hope many other religious bodies representing Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and even more Christian churches will come forward and speak up and pray for all animals, not just on October 4th. Let there be talks, sermons and prayer sessions for animals too.

God bless ALL His creatures, big and small!

    Thank you so much Jeffrey. Need all the help we can in order to be effective in helping animals.

    There is a story in the STAR newspaper today (Oct 7) about a 3-year-old left most of the time in a filthy room with a tiny dog for the three months that the couple looking after him rented the flat.

    The boy recently died with injuries to his head and brain. There are signs of abuse (sigh).

    Nothing was mentioned about the dog but I pray the authorities took it away. Even being put down is better than living with such people.

    What is wrong with these people? Why do they bother to take in a baby (baby taken from his maternal uncle 5 months ago) and dog when they know they can't care for them?

    Nobody is forced to keep an animal. So why do they do it? Why bother to go out and get a dog or a cat and then abuse them? These people are not normal but very very sick and if society does not do something about them, society itself will one day pay the price.

    I said on the radio there is medical documentation to show child abusers, serial killers and other sick criminals have at one time or other been cruel to animals.

    Then there is also the Prison Dog Program in the US started by a nun which has a fantastic record of dogs changing the hearts of the most hardened criminals. They could not even cry when they killed or was sentenced, but they cried buckets when their dog was sick or had to be separated from them.

    I wish there were more people like this nun.
