Animal Rahat Honours Sir Paul McCartney and Lady Nancy Shevell With Puppies

To recognise Sir Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell’s love of animals, Animal Rahat – an Indian organisation that helps alleviate the suffering of working animals – has gifted them a framed photograph of two adorable puppies named in honour of the superstar and his beautiful new bride.

A long-time advocate and supporter of PETA India, the Beatles legend has been associated with the organisation since its inception in 2000. “He and his late wife, Linda, were among the first supporters. Sir Paul has always been concerned about the suffering of street dogs, and we hope that others will be inspired to bring a stray or shelter dog into their homes,” said PETA India.

Animal Rahat, in an accompanying letter to the newlyweds, explained how their team had recently rescued the two puppies. “They were running in fright after having witnessed the accident which killed their mother in Sangli”, programme manager Sudheesh Nair said. The puppies are reportedly doing well now.

You can help end the animal overpopulation crisis by always adopting and never shopping for animals.

    Nobody deserves more plaudits for advocating animal rights and humane vegetarianism than Sir Paul McCartney (fondly known as Maccca.) He’s a great human being who supports myriad charities.

  2. ANIMALI SANTI (omaggio al vivisettore)

    E venne verso di te
    il mestierante.
    Leggero aveva il passo lento
    dell’attentatore.
    Ghigno malefico inquisitore
    l’uomo in bianco aveva, vivisettore.
    Giocoso l’accogliesti
    scodinzolante
    candido il manto
    degli innocenti
    Le mani leccasti al delinquente;
    atti d’amore, questi, e d’amicizia antica.
    Il bruto s’avvinghiò sul tuo mantello,
    un lampo fu, una saetta:
    e ti prese la libertà le carni.
    Vivisettore
    squallido abitante di laboratori,
    di stabulari, di scantinati doloranti.
    Manipolatore infame di viscere vive, palpitanti.
    Fredda e ottusa è l’opera tua di morte
    d’animali amici, animali santi:
    scannati, segati, trapiantati, eviscerati, decerebrati,
    scuoiati, bolliti, arrostiti vivi ed infine,
    come il Cristo crocifissi.
    Vivisettore, nutile si rivela il genio tuo assassino,
    ricercatore del nulla, nemico dell’uomo e della tua imbecillità.
    Col pane del sangue e della morte nutri i figli tuoi?
    (saran vampiri!)
    lugubre ricompensa dell’arte tua assassina:
    padre, barone e santità
    T’acclamano governi erranti,
    t’incoraggia all’assassinio e ti benedice il cielo,
    l’infamia, gli incivili, gli ignoranti.
    Mio è il disprezzo e la tua morte
    Gli animali martiri, povere creature, guardano
    all’amico, al santo buono.
    S’affidano a Francesco, ai protezionisti
    e a tutti i santi

    (Salvatore Messina)

  3. Grazie, Sir Paul McCartney, grazie dal cuore!
