Animals walk a spiritual path in the same way as humans. They all have souls with missions of their own to fulfill. At the end of their mission they return to the God-head, the Oneness, in the same way as humans.
Animal's souls are on a continuous path of evolution, as is Humanity. When we love and respect animals we allow them to fulfill their mission. Their mission is to bring peace, unity, understanding and unconditional love, to the masses. Their role is to lift the energy through their love on Earth.
We are all interconnected
The Love of one, affects the love of the whole!
