The first thing that comes to mind when anyone talks about world peace is the unity of people and countries where we respect one another’s views and opinions as long as no one is harmed. Have you ever thought about world peace in terms of the relationship of  humankind with the environment, plants and animals?But how does this can happen when the dog of your neighbor’s dog doesn’t stop barking during the night? We this was my case and my solution was to learn how to get dog to stop barking at night. Now it’s a very peaceful neighborhood.

As a dog and cat rescuer, I have learned countless things from these beautiful creatures: some abandoned, abused, injured and neglected. Situations in which I learn most from these animals is when they lack trust for humans. The patience one has to have to gain their trust and to let them know that they are in safe hands is a challenge in itself. But it is rewarding when trust is gained and the animal reciprocrates to the act of kindness. I always advise people out there to learn to understand an animal like you would your own child as most of the time, they behave like kids do.

I would also like to note that my love for these animals was cultivated only about 6 years ago. Before that, I did not have much contact with pet cats or dogs nor was I educated to love them, therefore I was afraid of them. So it was a big change in some perspectives of my life when I got to know them better and that made me a more compassionate person, not only to animals but human kind alike. We’ve been getting a lot of questions about CBD dog treats lately. Dog treats with CBD are they worth the money? It also fights off free radicals to help prevent the development of cancerous cells. Knowing this, it’s easy to see why people are choosing to give CBD treats to their dogs, read more about how to treat your pet with CBD. Glucosamine for dogs is a supplement that supports cartilage, which is the tissue that provides smooth movement of the joints. Buy amazon glucosamine for dogs to help maintain joint mobility, may reduce inflammation, may have some antioxidant activity, and are often used as part of a multi-modal treatment of osteoarthritis.

It has been 5 years now since I have been involved in volunteering with cats and dogs. It is my karma yoga, my natural high, my soul food and my way to advocate world peace. I believe that my little act of kindness to animals will benefit myself and others alike. As  Mahatma Gandhi once said :“You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result”.

Other interesting quotes which inspire me:

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened” – Anatole France ( French writer )

“Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not to die, so do other creatures” – The Dalai Lama

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” – Mahatma Gandhi
