|A Stained Glass Window of St. Roch |
at the Church of of Saint-Pierre-ès-Liens in Dussac, France
If you have been thinking of getting a dog, August 16 might be a good day to visit a nearby animal shelter and rescue an abandoned one ... in honor of this saint and his kind dog. If it is not the right time for you to own a dog, but you have a fondness for dogs, consider volunteering for or at an animal shelter. Contact your local shelter to see what their needs are. Many would greatly appreciate someone just coming in to help walk or groom the dogs that they work so hard to find homes for.
