Get to Know ACS
We are starting with our roots and our founder, Lesley Sinclair's, journey from London to East Smithfield with stops in New York and New Jersey along the way. From interior designer to animal rescuer she was a fascinating women.
Lesley Sinclair’s love for animals was also seen in her love of writing.
Here is one of her poems entitled
You walk in there
The walls say love
Sweet faces peer from up above
The bodies soften-
The eyes are glazed.
From room to room we feel their rays
And the wonderment of total giving
For only a meal and a chance of living.
And when one looks with joy and pride
One gets the feeling of God inside.
Some have no ears and some no feet
But they bark and purr
And their hearts still beat.
For the will to live is still strong in there
For they now know the peace
And the quiet and rest
For the whole of their lives.
‘Tis our privilege to offer
Away from a world of confusion and horror
Away from the humans who never could care
For a small tender creature
Who wouldn’t be there.
