Two Of The Numerous

Thankful Souls In Our Home

This Thanksgiving Day



“If having a soul means being able

To feel love, and loyalty, and gratitude,

Then animals are better off than a lot of humans.”


James Herriot


Both of them were so thankful

In a home, with so many friends

Both of them, had been homeless

And their misery was now at an end


Little Jack the Dog, had been dumped

He had been starving, out on the street

His canine love and loyalty, are enormous

He’s an immensely grateful pup, so sweet


Young Valentina the Cat, had been all alone

Living under a cold loading dock at a factory

She had known only loneliness and hunger

Now, every day, she purrs her thanks, to me


And both of these former homeless waifs

Have been welcomed by our other pets

All of them are still extremely grateful

They haven’t stopped thanking us yet


All of our pets are truly appreciative

Of the loving home they now all share

But so many today, are not as fortunate

There are far too many homeless out there


America’s animal shelters are overflowing

There are far too many, ‘left behind’ pets

Who all now desire, a second chance at life

Who have so much love to give someone yet


Please visit the Home 4 The Holidays website below

Their goal is to find over a million pets a new home

If you can find it in your heart, to take in, just one

I would truly love to read their new adoption poem



“And they will be your friend,

For always, and always, and always.”


Rudyard Kipling

I'd love to be able to adopt a kitty, but can't. No cats allowed. Don't want a dog; I'd rather have a cat. What do I do??

The poem shows your passion for homeless animals. God Bless You for that. Animals give so much and take so little.

Reviewed by Christine Tsen
Powerful poem.
Yes, they are grateful! My dog lifts his head and gives me a long loving look each time I feed him. Unlike the kids, he wouldn't dream of just digging in.
Bless you! Bless you! Bless you! Ed, I watched a 2hour film on wednesday night called Earthlings, it is two hours of the most cruel and grotesque kind, there was not a dry eye of the sixty five university students in attentants. If you really want to see, in a short compressed time frame, (for you seen Orleans), this film will show how depraved we can get. A big bastard of a guy picking up a weak emaciated dog and throwing it into the garbage truck for the crusher to finish it off, etc, etc, Lew, is right, who is humane, except you and a few others, thank you for writing this on Thanksgiving Day, for this touching poem.

This is touching and you are great to love them.
It really shouldn't be too surprising that people could do this to these animals. We have our own starving and sleeping in cardboard boxes. Who is humane?
God bless,
