While distributing Parshad to the Sangat, if there are animals and pets outside the premises can they be given the Parshad too by keeping it on a piece of paper?

We do that in our Sangat. In fact, there used to be two dogs who belonged to members of the Sangat who used to sit right outside the Gurdwara doors all day long. They were there when we arrived and still there when we left. I used to call them the "parshad hounds." Many Sangat members saved bits of parshad for them. One day I asked Yogiji about them and he said that they were together in a previous life and served as shoe wallas outside a Gurdwara in India. One of them stole a pair of jeweled jutti. Even though he later tried to return them, they were both reborn as dogs and came to our Gurdwara every day because that was the habit established in the previous lifetime. At Harimandir Sahib many give parshad to the fishes and birds even though the sevadars there discourage it.

Thank-u Guruka Ji not only for answering my question but also reminding me about the importance of Karmas..

How did the Yogiji know that they were shoe wallas? And if the man put the jutti back, he realized what he did was wrong. So if we claim Waheguru is the most merciful, why were they reborn as dogs?

Each soul gets exactly the incarnation they need to advance the soul towards Waheguru.

But how did the Yogi know the story that those dogs were jutti sevadars before??

No one has the power to know that besides Waheguru. So how did the Yogi know?
