ACCAW Vision and Purpose
Participation in ACCAW (Animal Communicators Coalition for Animal Welfare) is open for all people who are communicating with animals intentionally in their lives, not only professionally. Our aim as a not-for-profit coalition is to focus our individual and collective power in united intention to increase communication, balance, compassion, understanding, and communion among all beings.

We work together on projects of concern to us that affect animals and the animal/human connection, covering all levels from the highest spiritual overview and prayer/focused intention to physical action. As individuals we can each focus our energy on the aspect that most draws us and our talents. However, all our concerns from animal rescue in all its forms to overall consciousness of unity of life can be addressed as a communion of beings (animal communicators) who are aware of and educate others regarding interspecies communication.

Any member or non-member can offer suggestions for projects and healing requests for our group.
In all our projects, we focus on the wholeness of animals (non-human and human alike), honoring the spirit and life of all beings as One. 

The acronym for the
Animal Communicators Coalition for Animal Welfare (ACCAW) sounds like the call of crows and ravens, who pass messages all over the world as broadcasters in the network of avian communication. It also sounds a bit like "echo," which is what we are doing all over the world as we unite ─ echoing our good and powerful intentions for the welfare of all beings.

Origin of ACCAW
How Penelope Smith was moved to form ACCAW:

I had a dream on September 25, 2005 that Spirit urged me to act on in relation to all the monumental events of our time that affect all species, human and non-human alike.

In the dream, the animals and planetary guiding spirits were asking me to form the
ANIMAL COMMUNICATORS COALITION for ANIMAL WELFARE. They repeated this a number of times and made sure I had the title correct.

In the coalition, we animal communicators would work together on the projects of concern to us that affect animals and the animal/human connection. We would offer suggestions to work on all levels from the highest spiritual overview and prayer/focused intention to physical action. We could each focus our energy on the aspect that most draws us and our talents. Hurricane Katrina and other catastrophic events called for attention at that time. However, all our concerns from animal rescue in all its forms to overall consciousness of unity of life can be addressed as a communion of beings (animal communicators) who are aware of and educate others regarding interspecies communication.

The dolphins and whales are pushing a giant energy wave to help humans to make a leap in evolution toward unity of all life. All the animals are supporting us in walking in conscious connection for the well being of all life on Earth.

I sent this notice about the dream of ACCAW to all the animal communicators who are listed in our website animal communicator network directory and many people offered suggestions.
These are the projects suggested so far: 

Prayer, focused intention, meditation, healing circles for specific issues or general well-being at arranged times organized through a central webpage on and echoed on duplicate webpages on other websites;
ACCAW members internet discussion group;
All species wisdom (communications) sharing;
Animal Communicators convention;
Small groups organized with specific interest/task;
Volunteer consultations for people/animals in catastrophes such as hurricanes and in rescue and shelter situations.

If you would like to participate as a member of ACCAW, please write to Penelope at mentioning your background in animal communication, how you practice animal communication in your life now, and how you would like to help in alignment with the vision and purpose of ACCAW.

The weekly group focus time for all members of ACCAW who are participating in the Prayer and Healing Circle Fountain of Energy is Wednesday at Noon for all healing requests. Individuals who have requested healings could focus with the circle at that time to be more aware of and participate in the healing energy that is being concentrated around them. Besides the weekly focus time, ACCAW members also include the requested healings in their daily prayers.
The monthly group focus time for special concentration on group and Earth healing is the 1st day of the month at Noon or whenever you can focus that day. You can choose any or all of the issues.

Hold the vision of wholeness and divine harmony for each situation.

Nedda Wittels, animal communicator from Connecticut, suggests:

Since time is an illusion, anyone who can't make the actual time can send healing backward or forward in time with the intention of connecting with the group. Your healing energy would still be included and be just as effective as if you were doing it at that exact time. Also, healing can be sent from your higher self or I AM Presence (just ask that aspect of yourself to do so) at the "official" time or on an ongoing basis.                  
Morgine Jurdan asked Bimini dolphin friends how we could make our prayers the most powerful for all these animals, situations, people and the planet. They communicated:

Make it your intention to send love and healing for the highest and best good to each and every issue on that page, whether or not you read it directly. You mind scans the page and does see it all at once, like photo reading. You know everything that is before you instantly without having to stop and read through each line. Make the intention that you are joined together with everyone in the prayer circle. Your intention is that your prayers are connected with all others in the circle for the most power and energy they can possibly provide for the highest service of all animals, all people, all situations. Your intentions are the most powerful thing you have to work with. Group Mind occurs simply because you desire it to. People are often connected in thought and spirit around the world now. Just make the Intention to be connected to all those in your circle for the purpose of prayers for the highest and best good of all those involved, for the highest and most powerful energy you can provide among you and allow God/Spirit to take care of the rest.”

Prayer and Healing Circle Fountain of Energy

Here is a suggested prayer, chant, song to focus on with all the prayer requests below. It came to me when I united with the dolphins all over the world. When I asked for a prayer from the animals for our ACCAW (Animal Communicators Coalition for Animal Welfare) prayer and healing circle, they suggested that we include the dolphin prayer here. Penelope

From the heart of the Dolphin Mind, may we be united and in peace.

From the heart of the Dolphin Mind, may we all be enlightened and live in harmony together.

From the heart of the Oceanic Mother, may all beings, all species, all life honor and support each other in peace.

From the heart of Mother Earth, may we awaken to our highest fulfillment in love with all beings.

From the heart of Dolphin, Whale, Ocean, Earth and the deepest heart of our own life, may we live as One.

Woman smiling with white dog
Keri Davis, 59 y/o animal communicator in Canada, worked at a local shelter for many years helping problem dogs be adopted, doing hours of work with them. Over time, she has had significant injuries to the Alar Ligament in her neck which has caused upper cervical spine instability, also known as Craniocervical Instability (CCI.) It is a degenerative condition. If left untreated, the older Keri gets the worse her symptoms and their effects will become until she is resigned to a life of pain and dependent living. There is hope if she travels to a clinic in Colorado to receive treatment. This comes at a very high price and is not covered by any health insurance plan in Canada. Without this treatment, the quality of Keri’s life is rapidly deteriorating into incapacitating pain and neurological problems. Prayers for her full recovery. You can also contribute to help her get the surgery she needs at (Morgine Jurdan) 12Apr23

Lost Italian greyhound posterTan and white Italian Greyhound on fleece
My 7 y/o Italian greyhound, Itty Bitty Mia, got spooked at Home Depot in Kennesaw, Georgia 22July23 and ran out the door. I had her on a leash I was holding. People started chasing her and she took off. As it started to get dark, I walked back to my car. While in the crosswalk, I was hit by a car that fled the scene. Even though in shock, i still went looking for her until the "bump" on my head went from the size of a lemon to the size of a softball, and a friend convinced me to go to the ER. Also, last week, I got the results of a brain MRI I did before the incident and I have a brain tumor and the severe concussion affected the tumor. I am desperately trying to find my dog. Prayers for me and my beloved dog. (Kelle Straw) 17Aug23

Thank you so much for adding Vanessa and her family to the prayer circle. On 18May21, the court did rule for Vanessa to be released to a sanctuary and to not be euthanized. She is being given a tremendous amount of love from the sanctuary where she has her own beautiful suite. Her family is able to visit her along with her 4 legged best friend/brother and her health is returning. I know your prayers helped her. The court was 100% on euthanizing her after being accused of biting a woman and originally refused to let this sanctuary take her. Christine Vargas

Thank you so much for your prayers for my cat Lucky, who had pyrothorax, a serious chest infection. I took him home from the vets at the end of July (it's now November) and was told all I could do was administer steroid shots every day and enjoy the short time I have left with him. Lucky hasn't had steroids in two weeks, is back to his normal weight and good health. My gratitude to everyone. He shouldn't be alive by all accounts, so thanks for his miracle.

Our beloved Newfoundland dog, Phinn, has moved on to the non-material realms. Your prayers and kind energies certainly moved him along painlessly on his journey, which was, mercifully, very short. He was alert and receiving love and physical comfort to the very end; and the decision to join the spirit world was his. Much love to you all, and thanks for everything you've done to help support Phinney and us.

Your prayers must have worked. Fresca has been missing for 10 days, and now he is home. He's a little dirty and tired but definitely fine. Bev Hitchman

Thank everyone for prayers for Doug and Michelle. Prayers were sent so they could conceive if it was for their highest good. It was, they have a little girl, Macy, the love of their lives. Linda Epstein
Raju is now happily living at the Elephant Conservation and Care Center in Mathura, India. The attempted appeal by his cruel former owner was overturned, and Raju remains with kindhearted humans. He eagerly awaits being reunited with his long-time friend and companion, Mohan. We are grateful for all the prayers and spiritual healing! Jacqueline Texier

I asked for healing for my cat Edward. His right eye had been damaged and he had a covering over most of it. The covering has gone and his eye is normal. He is eating well and racing around the house as usual. Thank you for the healing, and "GOD BLESS."

Happy days are here again!  Last night we were sure Layla would have to go in for an ultrasound today, since she didn't eat at all again yesterday. But this morning we were awakened by romping; she flew down the stairs, then ate all her breakfast and some of her brother's! She seems 100% today!  Many thanks to you, Belinda, the cats and the chickens for your loving, healing energies!  And for putting Layla on ACCAW!  It supported her, and me!

Boris (the Lhasa Apso) that was attacked in Omaha, NE is healing miraculously; his deep and severe puncture wound is closing up fast and he is back to his feisty old self. His recovery is nothing short of a miracle! Thank you to your website for all the outpouring of thoughts and prayers for him. It definitely helped him recover so quickly. I am so very grateful and appreciative.
