I am a HUGE animal lover. One thing I find really challenging is seeing and animal who has been killed by a car.
I could never look as it broke my heart. I felt the ache and loss of such a beautiful creature to speeding metal. It made me feel helpless.
I came across this rite about 15 years ago and it has served me and all those bright souls well:
I picture the animal whole and happy while saying:
In the name of the Gracious Lady
I bid you to forget your broken shell
It can serve you no longer
I bid you in the Name of the Patroness of things wild and free,
To go beyond....
To rest, to enjoy the Summerland
Blessed Be small friend and farewell
