Carmelo was adopted through Proyecto Narices Frias (Cold Nose Project), a local animal rescue group. The group hopes that Carmelo’s story will inspire other monasteries to adopt their own pets.
The rescue group said that if more churches would adopt animals, surely their parishioners would do the same. I think that is a fantastic idea. Churches and monasteries are places of love!
They should be willing to take in a homeless pet. They could set a great example to everyone. Just think of how many people (nuns, monks, and priests) could benefit from having a canine or feline companion!
Share away, people!
