We had a great time at Veggie Heaven for God's Creatures Ministry's annual Holiday Dinner. We gave away gifts as some children drew numbers out of a bowl for the fortunate winners!

Deacon Joe Dwyer, Vice Chancellor for the Archdiocese of Newark and Board Member of Catholic Concern for Animals-USA, gave a talk about animals' The summary of his talk was to point out that we all have many possessions and needs...the only possession animals have is their life and their only need (unlike ours) is to GIVE love.

Janet Piszar, a long time activist, is currently Director of the Bear Education And Resource (B.E.A.R.) Group. She encourages everyone who says that they love animals to walk the walk, and not talk the talk. "Caring, and doing nothing, is worse than doing nothing, because you don't care" and/or "Volunteers do the work they want to do; activists do what needs to be done." J. Piszar, 2002.

Rose Rosenbaum, President of Coalition for Animals, (the umbrella organization over God's Creatures Ministry), shared some positive happenings for animals who need us so badly. She is pictured with her husband, Paul and son, Aaron. Coalition for Animals (CFA) is planning a dog walk in the fall to raise funds for animals abandoned from foreclosures and for the sub-groups who are all non-profit under CFA. Please visit their website at for more information.

All profit from the dinner went to our Veterinary Charity Fund to help people with veterinarian bills. You can raise funds for people in your area or for our fund.

Julie O'Connor, leader for Caring Activists Against Fur also shared. She has been doing some remarkable activism against hunting also.

There is the League of Humane Voters in New Jersey which is being promoted widely to help the animals in NJ. If you live in a state that has a humane party, please consider joining! For NJ here is some information:

The Mission of the League of Humane Voters of New Jersey (LOHV-NJ) is to create, unite, and strengthen local political action committees, which work to enact animal-friendly legislation and elect candidates for public office who will use their votes and influence for animal protection. They will also use our collective power to influence legislators, town councils, and county representatives.

Please send a quick e-mail to Angi at if you would like to join and include your name, address, phone, e-mail and any other contact information you would like her to have. Your information will never be sold. LOHV-NJ does share its lists with organizations who are doing political work for animals. This is critically important for unification of our political resources.

With all of the devastation happening in the world, especially in Haiti, our hearts go out to all people affected. We should not forget that God's creatures also need our help. Only 1% of all charities goes to help animals.

Hebrews 4:13 states: "No creature is concealed from him, but everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must render an account."

May God bless all who are helping people and animals all over the world.
