The brute animals have all the same sensations of pain as human beings!

The brute animals have all the same sensations of pain as human beings, and consequently endure as much pain when their body is hurt; but in their case the cruelty of torment is greater, because they have no mind to bear them up against sufferings, and no hope to look forward to when enduring the last extreme pain!
Please help us share the message: Animals are like us- they love, they mourn, they suffer, they FEEL!

“My times are in your hands...”

“My times are in your hands...”
(Psalm 31:15, NIV)

65 Dogs Found Chained in Massive Suspected Dog Fighting Operation Need Your Help TONIGHT!
"Starving, emaciated & abused" News Channel 5

On Thanksgiving night, whilst most of us relaxed with our families, a brush fire broke out in Ashland ...City Tennessee. As firefighters responded they uncovered the most horrific scene, they found 65 dogs, many of them chained to the ground. Many of these dogs were totally emaciated, some had infected wounds and many of others dogs had untreated broken bones.

The authorities were called in, and it is now believed that this was ground zero for what may indeed have been the biggest dog fighting operation in the history of the state of Tennessee.

Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) immediately responded in full force and, working with Local and Federal law enforcement, yesterday all 65 dogs were removed from the property. ARC Founder Scotlund Haisley described the situation as 'the worst conditions he has ever seen'. He went on to say that this operation had probably "been going on for decades".

Video from the local News Channel 5 shows the reality and the life of hell in which these animals were kept:

Dogs used in fighting rings live an unimaginable life. Fighting dogs are often beaten, shot or burned alive if they lose a fight, and that is presuming they actually survive it. Bait dogs (used to raise aggression before a fight) often have their teeth ripped out and their mouths taped shut so they cannot fight back. Dogs injured during fights or 'training' almost never receive any kind of vet care or treatment, and thus a slow painful death is an every day event for these tortured, innocent animals.

Most of these dogs had never known the touch of a kind loving hand, but thanks to ARC, tonight they will never know anything else.

ARC is now treating all 65 dogs and is committed to ensuring that not only do they receive the care which they need, but that every single one of them will eventually find a loving forever home.

As Haisley and his Team entered the premises he made these animals this promise, "your suffering ends right now". Please help him keep this promise and donate whatever you can spare.

I know that times are hard, but I will give if you will. This operation will cost at least $20,000, and right now just $5000 has been raised. So, I will match the next $1000 that you give tonight before Midnight Pacific Time. To donate online now please go to:

Animal Rescue Corps is a Registered 501(c)3 organization, so all donations are tax deductible. If you cannot give then please SHARE this post in order that these precious dogs may finally get the help they so desperately deserve, thank you so much.

The Bull Who Cried:

Knowing it was about to be slaughtered, a bull in Hong Kong did what many people fail to realize or are skeptic about when it comes to animals – he showed emotion.

As reported by “Weekly World News”, a group of workers walked a bull to a packaging factory. They were about to slaughter him to make steaks and beef stews. When they were close to the front door of the slaughter house, the sorrowful bull suddenly stopped going forward and knelt down on his two front legs. The bull… was all in tears.

How did he know he was going to get killed before he entered the slaughter house? He is even smarter than people.

Mr. Shiu, a butcher recalled, “When I saw this kind of so-called “stupid” animal sobbing and with his eyes in fear and sorrow, I started trembling.” “I called the rest over to see. They were just as surprised. We kept pushing the bull forward, but he just didn’t want to move and sat there crying.”

Billy Fong, owner of the packaging factory said, “People thought animals didn’t cry like human beings. However that bull really sobbed like a baby.” At that time, more than ten strong men witnessed the scene and they were all touched. Those who were responsible for slaughtering even felt more touched and teared as well.

Other workers working at the same slaughter house also came to see the crying bull. It was all packed with people. They were all shock by this scene. Three of them said they would never forget this crying bull when they slaughter other animals.

With both man and animal crying, everyone knew that nobody could kill the bull. The problem was, what should they do with him? In the end, they raised funds to buy this crying bull and sent him to a temple, where the kind monks would take care of him for life.

After the workers had made a decision, a miracle happened. A worker said, “When we promised this bull that we will not kill him, he started moving and followed us.”

How did he understand people’s words?

Mr. Shiu said “Believe it or not? This is real although it sounds unbelievable.” No doubt, this bull changed these butchers’ lives.

Hopefully this story has in turn changed yours.
