Does God Care About Animals?

Yesterday, I saw a news on TV an old man beating his poor dog. That was really cruel. Animals are suffering the devastating consequences of human maltreatment. They should be treated with respect, compassion,and propriety. So I come up with this questions? Has God abandoned animal creation to suffer at the hands of human? Does God care about how animals treated?

Notice this Bible verses: Jonah 4:11 King James Version (KJV) 11 And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle? Matthew 6:26 King James Version (KJV) 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? These and other verses that God cares for the animals and that we should not mistreat or abuse them. While we all allowed to kill animals for food, still we should kill them as humanely as possible. I prefer to be a vegetarian as I could never kill an animal even for food. I would only kill an animal if it was a danger to a human life.

Of course God cares about animals. God cares for everything created...man, animals, all of nature. If God didn't care, those things wouldn't be here.

He sure does care :). Jon 4:11 And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are more than sixscore thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand and their left hand; and also much cattle ? Btw, a number of times in the Holy Bible it is recorded that God had used an animal for His purposes.

GOD create animal to become the food for the man. Human have been given the authorities to take control the animals and give them names. Even so, GOD never abandon animals. It is why GOD created the food chain so that everything will be taken care off by itself. But it was human who have interfere with the nature that GOD had created and cause a lot of harm to the other living being.

"The Lord is good to all; he has compassion in all he's made. Psalm 145:9" God has all the compassion in the world, he loves all being equally. God abandoning animals is like God abandoning men which is not true. It is the race of mankind who has the will and choice who does incompassionate acts towards their kind and to animals.

I am sure he does care about animals, but evil men want to destroy his creation to please his Satanic master on earth, animal abusers will continue to rebel against God creation and carry out their destructive action for as long as they live, it is no doubt about that until someone can finish them once and for all, then once again, the earth will become a place full of diversity of flora and fauna for everyone to enjoy.

Hi friend, sad to hear about this, surely it is a great cruel and the person who torture the animal is deserved for the punishment. God is watching each and every activities and surely he will give punishment to him. God is full or mercy and he will take care of animals too.
