Pet Abuse Must Stop!

cute dog and cat 4I cringe when I hear that pets are thrown out of cars or left in the woods to fend for themselves. As I said in another post, I believe that people who do things like that are seriously disturbed and lack a soul. What can we do to prevent it? Unfortunately there’s no quick fix.  There are some small things that you could do to help prevent animal abuse down the road.  Take care of the animals that you have but encourage others to do the same. Lots of pet owners don’t have a clue on how to care for a pet and the pet ends up getting abused or abandoned. You could educate them. Give them tips on how you care for your pet and what a blessing it is to have the unconditional love of a pet.  An organization called Pet Abuse.Com provides animal advocates, humane law enforcement and other animal welfare organizations with the valuable  service they have come to rely upon in the fight against animal cruelty. They are run strickly by donations so any amount would help.  You can also volunteer at a local rescue shelter.  The shelters would be greatly appreciative if you could come in a few days a week for a few hours and just play with the animals! Get involved with your local government.  Animal cruelty and abuse is a felony in 31 states (it should be a felony in all 50 states.)  You can read through the abuse database and see the horrible crimes committed against these poor little creatures. While your dog is sound asleep in their soft dog bed, many are on the streets with no home. Send letters to your local government alerting them that the serious problem of animal abuse exists, is getting worse and must be stopped!

Remember, your pets count!
