At the end of the year it has become a journalistic tradition to recap the year’s top stories, to recall the highlights and low points of the months and to remember those who have left us. It is also a time to look forward with hope… This year that reach for hope and improvement seems more difficult than at anytime in my memory.
“It’s Auld Lang Syne time again. Robert Burns is credited with "collecting" the lyrics for the old Scots’ drinking and dancing ballad that’s become a traditional part of New Year festivities. The most memorable verses: "Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind?" and the chorus, "For auld Lang Syne, my dear, for auld Lang Syne, we’ll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld Lang Syne," are oft’ described as reminders of "the good old times" amidst new beginnings. That’s a tough task this year. Saying goodbye to 2013 won’t be hard. But looking forward with hope for a better year in 2014 is a bit of a challenge!”
Happy New Year!
And if you possible can… adopt just one more pet (or two) in 2014 or become a pet foster parent and donate to your local shelter. Our shelters are over-flowing and your help will save a life or perhaps many lives.
CNN Video: Dogs slaughtered for meat in Vietnam
Please get involved and help stop the slaughter of dogs in Vietnam and the dog meat trade around the world
Please get involved… Someone almost always sees, hears or suspects something, whether it is animal, spousal, child, elder or any abuse situation but often look the other way or think it isn’t their business or problem. Torture, murder, and abuse are everyone’s business and problem.
Join the fight and stop the pain, stop the killing, stop abuse of all kinds today!!
And if you know or hear anything about this situation… please contact Newark AHS
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas

And may you be blessed by the story and love of the true reason for this beautiful season.
