'God Bless Jack'

God bless your little heart
God bless the ones we cannot save
This losing is too hard
The hurt and sadness of the brave

You lay there through the night
Those quiet hours when no one came
And yearned to see the light
Oh little one we feel your pain

If only dreams came true
If only there was life for you
You'd know that we are here
You'd live to know a happy year...

But suffering is all
You knew and felt and nothing more...
Somebody let you down
And left you crying on the ground

So what then can we do?
Compassion must come shining through
Justice lead the way
And in your name keep others safe

God bless you little Jack
Though tears will never bring you back
We'll keep your memory bright
And never cease nor end the fight

God bless your little heart
God bless the ones we cannot save
This losing is too hard
The hurt and sadness of the brave

God bless you little Jack
Though tears will never bring you back
We'll keep your memory bright
And never cease nor end the fight

God bless your little heart
God bless the ones we cannot save
This losing is too hard
The hurt and sadness of the brave

MAY JUSTICE PREVAIL!

MESSAGE FROM WHITEHALL DOG RESCUE IN THE UK

This is one of the saddest tales Whitehall has ever had to tell! We see many animals suffering but In the history of the rescue we have never seen such cruelty before!

On Fri 17th September between the hours of 12am and 5am, someone left this poor dog outside the gates of Whitehall wrapped in an orange sheet. They made no attempt to call or knock on the door to alert us to the fact he was there.

Sadly Brian found him dead in the early hours of the morning. Had somebody alerted us, maybe we could have saved him.

The unbelievable suffering this dog has had to endure has shocked all of us within the rescue. We have called him Jack, we thought he deserved a name at the least.

Jack had been severely starved. His dew claws were so long they were growing round and into his pads. He has pressure sores on his side probably because he has been far too weak to move.

We are appealing for any information on how Jack came to be left at the gate. If anyone knows anything please contact Brian on - 07831421715 so we can bring Jack's abusers to justice.

The photos you have seen are upsetting and shocking, but we as a rescue decided to show them. We feel it is important that people know the true extent of what we have to face within rescue.

There are many dogs currently waiting on death row at the dog pound. We have taken in as many as we have space for but without rehoming some of the dogs we currently have, we have no choice but to leave many dogs. Hundreds of dogs will die everyday in the dog pound. They will not be fed on their last day and will go to their deaths hungry and alone.

Please help us by adopting a rescue dog and not buying a puppy. For every dog we rehome, another is saved!

If you know anything that may help with justice for Jack, please call. Your call will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

God bless you Jack. You were too good for this world!
