Prayer for the 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 must be put to death.

We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those who deal with them, we ask a 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.

If you see a case of equine/other animal abuse, we urge you to contact the following organizations to advise them of the facts:

  1. your local society for the prevention of cruelty to animals (spca) and/or humane society (which may have the power to enforce animal cruelty laws in your area);
  2. your State Department of Agriculture;
  3. local law enforcement officials;
  4. the city/county Health Department or Board (because abuse of animals often involves unsafe or unsanitary conditions for humans); and/or
  5. if none of the above are helpful, local media organizations.

You may be asked about the specific details of any animal(s) in need and to file a complaint. If legal action results, feel free to contact the ASPCA, they may be able to support lawyers and prosecutors with examples of similar cases and general legal information.
