I was in Royal Oak recently at a pet supply store and saw a simple handwritten flyer. It advertised free help for seniors with limited mobility. This help included walking the dog, cleaning cat litter boxes, taking to vet, ect. On the flyer were simple sweet drawings of a cat and a dog. When I am out of school this semester I would love to get together with other people and offer these services on my side of town. Sometimes all an elderly person has is their pet. If they are overwhelmed they might give up their pet, and we all know how another dog or cat needing a home or being euthanized is the last thing we want. Also heartbreaking, would be to break up a loving relationship of a guardian and companion. Forming a relationship with a senior and their animal companion could also help safeguard neglect and alert the helping hand to a senior needing money for food or vet care. The helper could locate resources like the humane society for help with food, and money discounts or payment plan at a vet. I just found this flyer to be so inspirational that it helped me to come up with this blog.
Peace to all,

wonderful quote from Northern Vegans website!

I thought this sums up things well, on how I like to look at the relationship of animals and humans.
A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the 'Universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.
Albert Einstein, New York Post, 28 November 1972

I would like to add to the last sentence ..and this all ads to a more peaceful world!

Peace of my Heart

Hi, the mission of this blog is to generate dialogue, and implement projects to create peace between animals and humans. I am an animal, nature, and people lover. I live this message every day in part by following a plant based diet. I love rescuing animals. I have 2 bunnies named Cooper and Buddha, a hamster named Tipsy, and a dog named Snaggle Tooth Ed. I am a member of the largest vegetarian organization in Michigan called VegMichigan. I also help with a meetup called, "The Animal Care Network-Inkster."
