Rock for Learning Animal Rescue Initiative - featuring Emmylou Harris' Bonaparte's RetreatANIMAL RESCUE INITIATIVE: Action To Save the Lives of Sheltered Pets
Help cultivate a better world through pet rescue, adoption, and responsible stewardship of all natural creation, including animals. Stewardship of all natural creation, i.e., the environment, people, and animals, is a responsibility of caring, not abusing. It is our obligation as human beings to care for our fellow creatures -- not only people but also companion animals, farm animals, and wild animals -- with mercy and compassion. Musician artists Emmylou Harris and Sarah McLachlan set great examples for animal rescue and stewardship; let's follow in their lead. Please join us with Emmylou Harris' Bonaparte's Retreat and other artists and animal rescue organizations in the initiative to raise awareness and share important information for animal rescue, adoption resources, guidelines for responsible stewardship, and links for spaying/neutering and pet care.[Learn more HERE.]
