‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (at the Shelter)

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a wonderful New Year to all!

Mercy for all Animals

I wish a wonderful holiday season to all, human and non-human alike, and I want to dedicate this poem to every single person who lives their life thinking of all creatures great and small and doing their best to avoid causing them harm. 🙂

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a blessed and beautiful New Year!
