"I do it for you"

 

I am an Animal Rescuer

 

 

I am an Animal Rescuer.
My job is to assist God's creatures.
I was born with the drive to fulfill their needs.
I take in helpless, unwanted, homeless creatures

without planning or selection.
I have bought dog food with my last dime.
I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand.
I have hugged someone vicious and afraid.
I have fallen in love a thousand times.
And I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body

too many times to count.
I have animal friends and

friends who have animal friends.
I don't often use the word "pet".
I notice those lost at the road side

and my heart aches.
I will hand raise a field mouse

and make friends with a vulture.
I know of no creature unworthy of my time.
I want to live forever

if there aren't animals in Heaven.
But I believe there are.
Why would God make something so perfect

and leave it behind?
Some may think we are master of the animals
But the animals have mastered themselves.
Something people still haven't learned.
War and Abuse make me hurt for the world.
But a rescue that makes the news

gives me hope for mankind.
We are a quiet but determined army.
And we are making a difference every day.
There is nothing more necessary

than warming an orphan..
Nothing is more rewarding than saving a life.
No higher recognition than watching them thrive.
There is no greater joy than seeing a little one play

Who only days ago, was too weak to eat.
By the love of those

who I've been privileged to rescue..
I have been rescued.
I know what true unconditional love really is..

For I've seen it shining in the eyes of so many..
Grateful.. for so little.
I am an Animal Rescuer.
My work is never done.
My home is never quiet.
My wallet is always empty.
But my heart is always full.

A PRAYER FOR ANIMALS
By: Albert Schweitzer

Hear our humble prayer, O God,
for our friends the animals,
especially for animals who are suffering;
for any that are hunted or lost
or deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that will be put to death.
We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them
we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals
and so to share the blessings of the merciful.
