Keeping an image of an animal in need in mind and sending loving energy – helps.
Prayer – helps.
Myself, I have asked spirit guides to protect and guide and be with an animalsmany many times, invoking them through an ancient Native American chant.
I have also – with good results, run a particular Prosperity Path Orb – a form of prayer – the Karma Wash (urthgame.com – download cost is 99 cents)
When I run the orb (run as in on the computer), my heart is open and I feel for the animals. I type in their names or characteristics, I run the orb and then let go and allow them to be in the hands of higher power, care and love, while doing what I can in this 3 dimensional world. It appears to have helped all the animals I ran for – and it helps me too.
