Baal of Lebanon

Meet Baal of Lebanon:

He is one of Amour’s puppies and he is about 4 months old. He was rescued off the streets by a US Soldier serving there. He contacted a woman that we team with named Helena. Here is her story. http://www.cnn.com/2012/04/10/world/meast/animal-shelter-lebanon/

“For a relatively small country, there are a significant number of stray pets in Lebanon: around 40,000 dogs and an unknown number of cats, according to the Beirut for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (BETA). Many are abandoned because their owners can no longer afford to care for them. Left to wander the streets and fend for themselves, the animals often meet terrible fates, from becoming bait dogs for fighting rings to being poisoned or shot because their numbers have reached ‘public-nuisance’ levels.”

With all of the help from this wonderful person and the Puppy Rescue Mission Family we know we can find this puppy a wonderful home where he will never have to worry about being shot or poisoned.

Please email adopt@thepuppyresucemission.org if you would like Byblos to be part of your life.

Baal properly Baʿal was a title and honorific meaning “lord” in the Northwest semitic languages spoken in Levant during antiquity. From its use among people, it came to be applied to gods. Inscriptions have shown that the name Baʿal was particularly associated with the storm and fertility god Hadad.
