About Us

Welcome to the Animal Kinship Website. 
Our purpose is to:

  • Provide immediate prayer support for anyone concerned with the health or loss of an animal companion, as well as establish a community of prayer where kindred spirits support each other.
  • Promote the belief that animals are our teachers and “guardian angels”, and are imbued with the same Spirit and Consciousness as humans.
  • Provide resources and inspiration to those wishing to deepen their awareness of our spiritual kinship with all life.

This site is designed to be a safe-haven for kindred souls who have come to gain a greater understanding and appreciation of their kinship with our animal companions. Our intention is to know the Spiritual truth about each living soul, to help uplift the consciousness of the planet, and to celebrate our kinship with all life.

Please feel free to explore the site and to write or send us your comments:

Thank you for coming and make yourself at home.
