POEM OF A NEGLECTED DOG
wish someone would tell me
What it is I have done wrong,
And why I must be chained outside
And left alone so long.
They seemed so glad to have me
When I came here as a pup,
There were so many things we'd do
While I was growing up.
The master said he'd train me
As a companion and a friend,
The mistress said she'd never fear
To be alone again.
The children said they'd feed me
And brush me everyday,
They'd play with me and walk me
If I would only stay.
But now the master hasn't time
The mistress says I shed,
She won't allow me in the house
Not even to be fed.
The children never walk me
They always say, "not now!",
I do wish I could please them
Can someone tell me how?
All I had, you see, was love
I wish someone would explain
Just why the said they wanted mine
And then left it on a chain......
"Ever consider what they must
think of us? I mean, here we come
back from a grocery store with the most amazing haul -- chicken, pork,
half a cow.
They must think we're the greatest hunters on earth!"
About the Beebe Humane Society
The Beebe Humane
Society began in February of 2003. A few concerned citizens in the
community of Beebe wanted to help the animals in the area and at the
local shelter. Beebe Humane Society has expanded beyond anyone's
We are the only Humane Society that will step outside the city limits
in White County and help county animals. We cover cruelty, abuse and
neglect calls on a daily basis.
Beebe Humane Society is currently operated out of
a private home and a few foster homes in the area. Due to the size of
the area we cover and the limited number of people and space available
we usually stay over
full. We are always in need of more foster homes!
We work very hard
to give each and every animal in our care the best chance at a
new and loving home . We post all adoptable animals
websites. We show animals each and every weekend at public places such
as Petco in West Little Rock on Saturday and Sunday. We have
application and screening process for all potential adopters, to help
ensure that animals are going into a healthy, loving environment.
Unfortunately, the reality is there are too many
companion animals in this country. Although we would like to
Beebe Humane Society is not a "no-kill" humane society. With aggressive
spay/neuter laws and education we hope to reach that goal. Currently
our euthanasia rate is only 6%. What this means is that 6% of the
animals that we take in are humanely put to sleep. This number includes
aggressive, sick, or otherwise unadoptable animals.
The Beebe Humane Society is a 501c3
The Beebe Humane Society receives no city or county funding. We are
currently operating without the assistance of grants. We are run
strictly out of pocket and from adoption fees and public donations.

A Rescuer's Prayer
Now I lay me down to rest
I pray my soul can
stand this test
critters lose their homes
While owners gripe
and cry and moan
I long for strength of spirit and
I pray they'll find a home again
Where they will know a loving heart
I can't do much, but it's a start..
And spare me from the owner's pleas
About the baby's allergies
Or how they're moving out of state
Or spitefulness 'tween cat and mate
Please keep me sane while dealing with
The woman who got as a gift
A wriggling tiny ball of fluff
That now is playing way too rough
Remind me I should bite my lip
When confronted with "he grew too quick"
"I didn't know he'd get so large"
"He seems to think that he's in charge"
Protect my heart when I hear them say
"I think we'll breed our dog one day"
Sometimes I think I'll break in two;
Each day brings trials harsh and new
And if I die before I wake
I pray one hopeless soul you'll take
My tears are gone, my faith is bare
Lord, please hear my rescue prayer.
