The problem with the world (one of the many problems with the world) is that so many people seem to forget that animals are just as much a part of a family as anyone else. When it comes to your life, you will do anything for your dog and cat. When it comes to being displaced, homeless or being forced to forgo things like groceries due to circumstances beyond your control, your dog does not stop loving you. He doesn’t give up on you when you are down. They love you forever, but more people seem to forget about this when they are down and out.
One church, however, does not forget this. The Grace Episcopal Church is aware that just because a human is unable to provide for his family does not mean that his dog should be forgotten. Being strapped for cash and finding it difficult to feed your own family is not easy, and that’s why so many people are lost when it comes to their animals. They want to make sure that everyone in the house is taken care of whether it’s the cat, the dog or the kids. It’s hard on those who are unable to afford food to see anyone in their families suffer, and it’s difficult to ask for help.
Thankfully, the men and women of this church understand that animals are so important to their owners. They get it, and they want to ensure that men and women are able to feed their families and their pets, which is why they’ve got not only a food pantry, but a dog food pantry as well, and the world is thankful to this church for their kind and selfless act. It’s a nice thing to remember that animals need love, too; not just humans.
