Over the years LCAR has participated in over 153 law enforcement seizures which involved 194 equine, 15 farm animals, and 30 dogs. To a million dollar facility that probably doesn’t sound like much, but to us it took tremendous effort. Although our main goal has been involved with equines, we have always cared for the animals that were assigned to us. We do not advertise as a dog shelter because we are not one. But over the years many dogs have ended up with us, some adopted out and some life residence. Our dogs have come from seizures, abandon at our front gate, individuals who take advantage of Cindy’s kind heart, or from Linn County Animal Control hospice. We will continue to provide love and care to all animals, your help is deeply appreciated.

Its interesting to know science is now proving what horse people have always known.

Psychologists at Sussex University,explored the equine capacity to read the human face and emotions.

They can not only tell whether a human is angry, or happy,  they react to those emotions.

NEVER GO TO THE BARN ANGRY!

The connection between animal welfare and faith communities has very deep roots, said animal welfare

advocate Sister Lucille Thibodeau, PM, PhD. She said some figures traditionally viewed in a

nonreligious light, such as ancient philosopher Pythagoras, were the first Western world thinkers

to suggest that humans had a duty to be kind to animals. Later, the Hebrew Bible urged kindness toward

animals and Christians such as St. Francis of Assisi, now almost universally recognized as the

Patron Saint of Animals, carried that concept even further.

A surprising number of medieval monks and nuns protected animals from hunters,

releasing them from traps and snares and placing their own bodies between hunters and their prey,

” Thibodeau said. While the measures might seem extreme, they’re not so different

from modern groups who use litigation, legislation, and other tools to advocate

for the preservation of America’s wild horse and burro herds, increased federal equine

welfare protection for gaited performance horses, or prevent U.S.

horse processing plant development.

Today, animal welfare advocates are exploring ways to engage

faith communities in animal welfare advocacy issues, as well.
