I so kid you not. I had googled "Church for Pets" to see what would pop up being that it is indeed Sunday. A day for rest for humans and just another day of rest for pets.
Here is a brief paragraph from their web site:
Church of the Enlightened Pets is a specialized ministry, our ministry fosters Pet's and Chaplains around the world. We offer every Chaplain a free listings in our Member Directory as a free service to our community. Each Chaplain works independently within their own congregation, ministry or non-profit organization. Independent Chaplains are able to provide an services to the community, such as pet loss grief support, perform memorial services, prayer for those animals who are injured or sick, as well as any other sacerdotal service that clergy perform.
Our Minister's can visit clinic's to offer support and services to others during surgery or time of need. As an ordained minister you can also perform memorial services.We'll we got to thinking about all of the pets that travel by RV and what do they do in a time of need like this? We lost a pet because of the STUPID dog pound in Utah. I will forever hate those people. We went and adopted a 10 year old terrier and she was so cute and had so much hair that I put bows in there and do you know more men then women came up to her saying how cute she was. She was great. I always had her in my backpack for bike ride and she loved them. But when we got her she had kennel cough and they lied about it. They gave us these huge cow size pills for this little dog and told us they where for her operation (she wasn't fixed). Well we gave the pills like told and and they gave us a free vet visit with their local vet and and I opt to go to one I already knew about and respected. It turned out she had kennel cough and those cow pills where given to her because of the kennel cough. She had ex rays done and they said she had a spot in her heart and at her age most likely would get worse. They changed her pills to something she could swallow easy and off we went. She died a week later.
You should always visit a dog pound twice before adopting a dog and if the crew there really take time with you and gets to know you - then you know they care. We now do that and we choose different times because it's nice to know what goes on off routine. I.C.A.R.E knows how great they are but they'll never know the hell we went through and how much their service meant to us. We love them so much that there link in on our side bar. So you can visit them any time you want to.
But for those of us that believe and celebrate the word of the Lord. I thought about what we share as a believer and how our pets fit into that.
