A Cry For Help

candle

A few days ago I was going through my Facebook feed and saw something that has deeply haunted me.  It was a photo of a dog that had been beaten, neglected and abused.  The suffering and the disbelief in this animal’s eyes broke my heart.  I was so upset that I immediately shut it down.  That was probably a dumb move, because now when I try to retrieve it I can’t find it.  It was posted by an animal rescue site that I am not familiar with, so I didn’t know whether it was legit.

I had a hard time falling asleep that night.  That poor dog’s face haunted me.  Why would someone do this?  And how can I help?  And, perhaps more importantly, how can I prevent this from happening in the future?  I have no answers for this, other than to support animal rescue organizations and to work toward education of our children that this behavior is not okay.

So I am posting this to give a voice to those who have no voice.  If you have an idea or solution, please share it.  If you see something, please speak up.
