A Second Chance for Animals




It is being proven on a daily basis that humans can be the most abusive, brutal, vicious and neglectful species on Earth in their treatment of animals and weaker individuals. The purpose of the American Humane Association’s Second Chance® Fund regarding a second chance for animals is to provide funded grants to non-profit shelters and organizations. This honors its no-kill philosophy for stray, abandoned, homeless and surrendered animals that require massive amounts of medical care due to ruthless abuse or neglect by humans.

Assistance provided

In 2009 alone, Second Chance®  for animals saved countless dogs and animals: many beaten to the point of death, a cat that had been set on fire alive, a little paralyzed Beagle mix because he was purposely shot in the back, and a lovable pit-bull mix that had been tightly wrapped in barbed wire and left to die. Not all are happy stories of survival. Some did not make it, such as precious William …used as bait training in a dog-fighting ring.

Overall, the Second Chance® Fund in 2009 provided assistance to 85 organizations for the medical care of 974 animals—including cats, cows, dogs, donkeys, goats, horses, llamas, parrots, pigs and sheep. Every year, more and more animals need care. For a Second Chance® for animals to succeed, it needs donations, advocacy and people willing to report animal abuse. By not getting involved, the world becomes the guilty party.

The spirit of unconscious cruelty

To promote compassion for animals, in The Philosophy of Civilization, Albert Schweitzer wrote, “We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.” The worst thing is….the spirit of cruelty is a conscious act by humans, God’s children.  (Video: All God’s Creatures….Warning!

    I had to stop watching the video. I was screaming and crying. How CAN people be that cruel?

      Unless people can actually see the horrible cruelty, they will always deny it happens. That video is a wake-up call for humanity.
