St.Martin de Porres loved animals. Born at Lima, Peru, in 1579, his father was a rich Spaniard and his mother a colored freed-woman from Panama. At fifteen, he became a lay Dominican brother, working as a barber, farmworker, almoner, and infirmarian among other things. Martin’s love was all-embracing, shown equally to humans and to animals. He maintained a cats and dogs hospital.
