Cruel Animal Suffering

Every day thousands of animals are neglected, beaten, trapped, killed for their furs or horns, or made to perform in cruel animal shows. This is bad because animals are thinking, feeling, beautiful creatures.

It is wrong when dogs are neglected, when animals are forced to perform, or when animals are hoarded into tiny apartments.

These animals deserve our love and help. This website helps you to understand the kinds of animal abuse out there and how you can stop it. The first animal abuse law in America goes back to 1641 when the Massachusetts Court declared that even cattle deserved adequate food and periods of rest. We have come a long way since then, cruel puppy mills are regulated and people can no longer trap rare animals without  penalty but there is still a long way to go.

Please visit my website to learn more! And remember, animals have feelings too.
