“I believe in animal rights,

And high among them is the right

To the gentle stroke of a human hand.”


Robert Brault


Music: A Whole New World


It has now been over a week

Since I trapped Lily in that field

She has spent this time, at the vet’s

Being cared for, and starting to heal


Abandoned Little Lily had been starving

Her emaciated body, filled with parasites

What a difference, some TLC can make

Little Lily is no longer consumed with fright


She is already beginning to trust, again

She senses her nightmare is now behind

Last night, she took another ride in a car

To a couple’s home, who are extremely kind


Lily of The Field is now staying with Foster Parents

She’s once again receiving the love that she deserves

Sharing their home, with three other rescued canines

Who are very willing to share this sanctuary, with her


Her favorite pastime, is already snuggling up on the family sofa

With the man of the house, where she delights in his gentle touch

Please consider fostering or adopting, a homeless orphan like Lily

I believe that each and every abandoned canine, deserves as much


“I believe in animal rights,

And high among them is the right

To the gentle stroke of a human hand.”

Lily's a beauty, Ed, and innocence shines
in her lovely warm face. Don't our hearts tell us
it's wrong to abuse, neglect and abandon?

God bless you and others like you who reach out to help these poor animals who would die without the love and care of a benefactor who will care for them, finding them a good home to house and feed them and show them such love.

Wish I could, but I am more of a cat person. I hope all dogs (and kitties) find a forever home and family they can call their own! Wonderful update on what could have been yet another sad animal abuse story .... thank you for caring for our furry and feathered friends!
