People who abuse animals make me sick. In my opinion anyone and I mean anyone who abuses animals should be thrown in prison. It’s just disgusting. I think that whatever someone does to an animal, like beating them, stabbing them, or even setting them on fire, should be done to them. That’s just my opinion though, I kind of hope you agree with me.
Animal abuse and cruelty is a worldwide issue. Animal cruelty can be either deliberate abuse or simply the failure to take care of an animal. Either way, and whether the animal is a pet, a farm animal, or wildlife, the victim can suffer terribly. You can help these animals. Animals don’t have a voice, but you do, you can be there voice. Don’t be afraid to speak up. You can make a difference. This information is from, http://www.ontariospca.ca/what-we-do/investigations/animal-cruelty-resources/what-is-animal-cruelty.htm
I was talking to my teacher, Mrs.Caudill, about my blog post and how I was writing about animal abuse and she said something that I agree with. She said, if you ever date a guy and you go to his house and his dog comes to greet you and he kicks it and yells at it then get in the car and leave. Anyone who will mistreat an animal with mistreat you. I think it is very important that everyone reads this.
Did you know that most often people with emotional problems may beat, shoot, or stab animals or set them on fire? Those who abuse animals are very likely to be violent to other people, including their own family. This is from, http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/abuse_neglect/
Some people think that it is ok to hurt animals. Some people will say that animals don’t have souls, or God gave humans dominion over animals, humans are intellectually superior to animals, animals do not reason, think, or feel pain like humans do, animals are a natural resource to be used as humans see fit, and even that animals kill each other so it must be ok for people to do it too! Well its not and if you think it is then you can go rot in a hole! These facts are from, http://facts.randomhistory.com/animal-cruelty-facts.html
Do you think someone near you could be hurting animals or hoarding animals? Here are some ways to tell.
-A person who keeps far more animals than they can properly care for is a hoarder.
-Lack of veterinarian care, wounds that have not been treated is a sign of abuse, scabs, and hair loss included.
-A bad shelter, not good enough for extreme hot or extreme cold.
-Dogs that are always chained up. They will never socialize with people or animals and there are exposed to predators, and the elements
If you ever see someone hurting an animal you might want to walk away, but if you really want to help the poor animal then call the someone you know can handle the issue. Every year the human society and the ASPCA rescue thousands of animals from horrible situations. This info is from, http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/abuse_neglect/facts/animal_cruelty_facts_statistics.html
Millions and millions of animals have to be put down every year because of injuries they have suffered from their owners. Some animals can be saved and some are just too badly injured. If you want to help these animals there are lots and lots of ways, you could volunteer at a animal shelter, you could donate, or you could adopt an animal from a shelter or the pound. If you would like to find out how or just want more information on animal abuse visit this website, https://www.aspca.org/about-us/faq/pet-statistics If you would like to read some stories about animals who have been saved then go here, https://www.aspca.org/blog/2014-12
One of the reasons that I want to be a vet when I get older is so I can help animals that have been abused. I really want to work for the ASPCA. I would really like to know your opinion on animal abuse. Do you think it’s bad? Or good? Comment below please.
