THE SLAUGHTER OF TERRIFIED BEASTS:
A Biblical Basis for the Humane Treatment of Animals
Written by the editor of HUMANE RELIGION, Rev. J.R. Hyland,
this book is now in its third printing and shows that from the time
of creation to the time of Christ, the Bible testifies to Godís love
and concern for animal life.
The use of animals to satisfy human demands is a perversion of
the role assigned by the Creator: the role of compassionate
caregivers for nonhuman beings.

A Prayer For Animals
Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals,
especially for animals who are suffering; for any that are hunted or
lost or deserted or frightened or hungry; for all that must be put
to death. We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity, and for those
who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion and gentle hands and
kindly words. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals and
so to share the blessings of the merciful.
