Animal Abuse and Cruelty is a major problem in the world that very few people know many details about. Animal Abuse is not just simply beating an animal to where it is nearly on the brink of death. It can be things that many people witness every day and not realize that they are even witnessing someone breaking the law. People do not realize what they are witnessing because the majority is uninformed about what Animal Abuse really is. There are many forms of animal abuse and the awareness is very minimal this awareness needs to be increased and more evasive actions need to be taken to help solve this terrible issue.
When you get an animal you provide for it so it can be healthy and strong just like children. Organizations such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals just look at the bad incidents and don’t take into account how much we have expanded from livestock. They think that in FFA or 4-H we just fatten up our livestock and when the time comes we just give them away to be slaughtered like nothing, as if we never got emotionally attached to our animal. But they are wrong. We provide everything that is needed. We give them food and make sure they’re hale and hearty, we clean their pens so no diseases or infections spread around, and we exercise them so they don’t become lazy, and surprisingly people see this as animal cruelty? But the “humorous” part about this is that the people who have never been involved with livestock or had experience in the expertise are making assumptions about something that is false. We as farmers just want what’s best for our
Ultimately, as by now you may now, animal cruelty is a gargantuan problem in our society today. If our society doesn 't take care of the world we live in and the animals that help it thrive and prosper, we are not going to last very long. We need to cherish the minuscule things and make sure we respect every aspect of it. Animal cruelty does not need to occur nor does it serve any purpose in creating a balanced society. This abuse and cruelty leaves its mark not only physically but emotionally, short-term, as well as long-term. Many abused animals are unable to trust again, causing an uprising in the number of animals in shelters. When people abuse animals, the animals become aggressive or frightened and end up in shelters. Various issues can arise when it comes to animal abuse whether it is for the animal itself or the individual.
Horsemeat has been discovered in the U.S food supply, and is dumped on the dinner plates of unsuspecting consumers. Not only do Americans overwhelmingly oppose slaughtering horses, but horses are not raised for food and over the course of their lives they receive a wide variety of drugs and other substances that make their meat tainted. Being sold for slaughter is one of the many challenges horse’s face to merely live their lives free of abuse and suffering. Hope can be found in the homes and hearts of millions of people ready and willing to protect them. Whether you ride horses, own them, or just love them, I urge you to play a part in their protection through adoption, donations, volunteering or advocacy. A proposed

Is a horse considered a man’s best friend? Horses have been by our side for over six thousand years helping us and companioning our long days of evolution and work. They have most definitely become as close to us humans as any other pet would be. Other countries, however, don’t appreciate the strong bond that we have built for so long. Foreign countries have come to believe that horse’s meat is tender and delicious enough to serve on their plates! Just last year, over 135,000 horses were slaughtered with their meat being shipped to foreign seas (Finch). Horse meat has grown to be in very high demand in foreign countries which results in many slaughterhouses to be popping all over the world. Sadly in the United States, Canada, and Mexico is the main places in the world where these beautiful companion creatures are gathered, slaughtered, butchered and shipped off to foreign countries (Fact Sheet). There is much controversy on whether the slaughtering of horses should be allowed or not because the entire process that they go through is so bad and petrifying to the point where being dead is the best option that they can possibly have (Horse Slaughter-Wikipedia). Even though horse meat is in high demand for human consumption, it is inhuman because slaughterhouses use
AZUCUS Ranch is a ranch in Vicksburg, MS where I ride horses. I have been riding there for many years, ever since I could walk. There are other riders there that have been there as long as I have. There are also some riders that have just started riding there. When the riders get done riding, it is their duty to take care of their horse, meaning they have to untack their horse, wash them off, put them in either a pasture or a stall, then depending on where they put them, they must feed them. Most people at the ranch actually take care of their horses in the way in which they are supposed to, other riders, however, expect other people to take care of their horse for them. The horse riders at AZUCUS Ranch can be divided into three groups according
In lack of control people lose authority over animals and through courage they use weapons or different methods to try to control and can eventually kill the animals. This cause is the most common and often out different news every day about the lack of authority that people have about their pets or their neighbors pets. “Abbotsford Resident concerned after her cat also shot with a pellet gun” Judd writes, “A person in the neighborhood is shooting cats with a gun. Days later her cat was shoot, she said would the person actually do this to a pet do that to a person”. The author’s point is no one can shot animals for scare them. As a result people do not like animals of other people come to their homes often they cause damage to property and
“One cannot look deeply into the eyes of an animal and not see the same depth, complexity and feeling we humans lay exclusive claims to,” stated Nan Sea Love. Just like what Nan Sea Love said, what is in animals is the same that is in humans, it does not mean it is okay to harm animals. So I ask you, people of Elk County, to prevent animal abuse in our cities. Animal cruelty needs to be explained, prevented, and donations need to be made to local human societies.
Over the years the issues of animal cruelty in factory farms have become a major problem, because of the thriving meat industry. The issues regarding animal cruelty are important because it concerns fundamental moral and economic questions in respect to the way animals are treated, before being brutally slaughtered and later consumed by Americans daily. The topic of animal cruelty raises multiple differing arguments, many concerning religion or possibly a person's geological location in the world. By considering the arguments made by people who think animal cruelty to be morally acceptable, and researching the verified practices taking place on factory farms today, it will be clear that in the United States Animal cruelty is a cruel and unnecessary
The act of having more than the average number of companion animals without the ability to properly provide the minimal standards of care has been defined as animal hoarding (Animal Hoarding, 2010). An individual who hoards animals may be in denial to the poor living conditions they and their animals live in, the care the animals are receiving, and just how it is significantly affecting their life. It is critical for social workers to increase their knowledge regarding individuals who may hoard animals and obtain the proper resources to provide assistance to both the individual and the animals. Additionally, it is important for social workers to be able to recognize and address animal hoarding within individuals; therefore, they will be
I like to volunteer in a peaceful and quiet environment because it will help me gain motivation and dedication. The mission statements of Animal Friends of the Valleys are “dedicated to promoting humane care of animals through education and a humane, pro-active animal services program. They are committed to preventing the suffering of animals and to ending pet overpopulation.” Every animal needs a home, otherwise, we will most likely see a stray animal in the street without food and water, and how will they be able to survive? When I think of this situation, it makes me feel sad. What is the reason that the owner of the animal has to abandon them? It gives me a hard time to seeing those animals been locked out in cages because some of them being abused previously so they might feel scared to come out and meet people and others animal, which is
Animal abuse is a clear prediction of the future, so why are abusers merely getting slapped on the wrist?
“Hold back the abuse,” “Someone needs to demand actions,” “The circus abuses animals,”- these may all be phrases that one has heard countless times. However, people 's actions prove otherwise. In fact from the United States, the circus receives roughly 10.36 million people every day (The Statistics Portal). This includes families that take their young children to watch these shows for “entertainment”, not knowing the amount of damage these performances cause to these innocent animals performing. The commonly expected effects that have ensued in the cause of animals in the circus living in a state of depression include violent addressing and the removal of animals from their natural habitat. However, the root cause comes from people like yourself.
Where do abandoned animals go? Sometimes they stay on the streets but other times if pounds and animal shelters think they could be adopted they take them to the shelter. There are many types of shelters some are good some are bad, even if it sounds good like a “no kill” shelter it might be still be bad and most “no kill” shelters have a long waiting list so the animals might be on it for a long time.
