A Christian duty to be concerned about animals

I was interested to read your article, 'Will your pet go to heaven?' (May 15) about the services for pets and their owners at St Margaret's Church, Horsforth, Leeds.

Several churches now hold such services, mostly in October to commemorate St Francis of Assisi, and prayers are said for animals that are treated cruelly.

I think Christians should be concerned about the welfare of all animals. The Bible tells us to be good stewards of animals but humans often fail to do this.

It cannot be acceptable to God when battery hens are kept in cages so small that they have no room to walk or even open their wings.

Anyone interested can contact Animal Christian Concern....
