#purrs4peace Hello everyone, we’re participating in Purrs 4 Peace Week 16. This week we are purring in hopes that “Shelters” should live up to their name.
Sister Zoe is leading us today
Purring 4 Peace Starts Now
Pound Seizure. Two innocuous words but together they mean something horrific: animal shelters or humane societies-places that are supposed to protect animals and find them good homes- selling household pets for use in testing and research.
This issue is even more crucial in this time when shelters are critical to the protection of animals. More and more are being made homeless due to the fact the deployment of their humans in the military or due to the fact that their humans have lost homes to foreclosure or weather incidents.
This week we will purr to stop this barbaric practice of pound seizures. Purr to pursuade. Purr to protect. Purr for peace.
As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together.
–Isaac Bashevis Singer
