What is Animal Abuse??

Animal abuse is when someone or something hurts animal or does not care for the animals' responsibility, like not giving the dog or cat the proper ingredients; such as food and water. Did you know that there is a law that does not permit animal cruelty? Yeah, there actually is a law for that. It is against the law to be mean or to harm animals, even your own pets. Also, did you know that there are about 1 million animals that get abused either by person or by an object? It is scientifically proven that there are 1 million animals abused all over, they could be in a basement, in the garbage cans, or even in a backyard tied up to a tree.

What Is Something You Can Do?

Animal Abuse is a serious issue all around the world. If you see an animal being hurt, remember that you can speak up for that animal. Here is some steps you can do:

  1. Do Not Bother Touching The Animal. If you see a human being harming an animal/s don't get involved or it could lead to a dangerous situation. It can be very upsetting but you do not want to get yourself harmed. Do not help an animal by yourself.
  2. Get Some Help. Find someone that you see near by or a family member what you saw and get some help from them, and together help that injured animal/s.
  3. Call for Help. If you appear to see an abused animal/s you can immediately call 911 because it is an emergency. If you see an animal being not cared for in the appropriate way, you can have your parents or a friends to call for emergency.

How many animals are victims of cruelty each year?

Because there is no reporting demands for animal abuse, there is no such way to keep track of the number of animals that get abused that are filled or that make it to courts each year. The way of creating animal abuse reporters, has been supported for along time to help stop animal cruelty.
