Stop Animal Abuse

By: Peyton Borel

Statistics

Every year thousands of animals are abused and it can happen anywhere. Like how each year, thousands of young and healthy Greyhounds are killed because they lack the racing potential or have been injured while racing and can no longer compete. Every single major circus that uses animals has been cited for violating the standards of care set by the United States Animal Welfare. Over 100 million mice, rats, dogs, cats, rabbits, monkeys, birds, and others are killed in U.S. laboratories for chemical, drug, food, and cosmetic testing every year. It has also been estimated that there are 900 to 2,000 new cases every year of animal hoarding in the U.S.
