Bishop Dr. Claude Porter, founder and senior pastor of Proviso Baptist Church in Maywood, Illinois, delivered a moving sermon to his congregation about the importance of respecting and honoring animals as part of God’s creation.
“We have the responsibility to make sure they are treated right,” he said.
The HSUS and Proviso will host an animal wellness clinic at the church on April 9, to provide veterinary services to Chicago-area residents in need. Proviso joins a growing group of churches that are partnering with HSUS to host free and low cost clinics as a way to minister to their communities.
