Thousands of animals across the United States are being beaten, starved, abandoned, and left to defend for themselves. Animal cruelty has become a nationwide problem in today's society. In the Public Service Announcement (PSA), "Sarah McLachlan Animal Cruelty", produced by the ASPCA, this commercial persuades the audience through pathos appeals, but the PSA's representation of the appeals of ethos and logos are showing animals in America suffering from cruelty and neglect every day.

A11602683 In 1975, Peter Singer published his work, Animal Liberation, which is, as some animal activists have argued, the catalyst for the modern animal rights movement in the United States. In his work, Singer argues that the principle of equality requires that we not only take into consideration the interests of our fellow human beings, but also the interests of all beings with the capacity for suffering. Singer’s argument revolutionized the way many people thought about the treatment of animals – given that animals can suffer, there can be no moral justification for continuing the current practice of exploiting animals for our own interests and as such, activities like eating and experimenting on animals are morally unjustifiable and violate
In Kenya I got to see so many amazing things some of my favorites were getting to see elephants splashing around in a river, three cheetah brothers playfully rough-housing and two lionesses sprawled out in a field on their backs and tummies in the sun. This trip made me realize how so many of these animals faced serious endangerment and not enough people were aware of that. I learned that elephants are really the sweetest of animals and that these great big animals are terrified of bees. One of our guides told us that they noticed they had a spacific noise to signal the bees were coming. But I also learned that the poaching of elephants has become very serious in eastern region of Africa ranging between 419,000 and 650,000 elephants.
Due to animals running around in the wild, scientists and researchers can track the amount of animals being killed everyday. This usually causes extinction within that species, and researchers have decided to do something about it. Although endangered animals are born in the wild, they should be sheltered and protected in nature parks because it helps decrease the amount of extinctions, allows a better and healthier environment, and the animals are protected from predators and human hunters. Endangered animals are to be kept in zoos because it decreases the amount of extinctions. Human activities have affected animals living in the wild dramatically throughout history.
Cows will bellow for days when mourning their dead.” These are examples not only prove the author's points that animals and humans share similar experiences but it also mentions “superhuman animal” traits. Dixon uses these examples to appeal to the logic of audience and make them respect the unique traits of animals. In “The human side of animals,” Royal Rixon persuades his audience that humans should treat animals with more respect using persuasive devices such as rhetorical questions, imagery, and examples.

He discovered a thousand of bats, 200 different kinds of monkeys, 315 humming birds, 350,000 species of beetles and a quarter million of flowers in which a variety is astounding. He said that Charles Darwin revolutionized in how we see the world. In his book, “The Origin of Species” (1859), he showed how creatures have developed through ‘natural selection’. They compete for resources such as food, water and shelter. The weaker ones die while the strong survivors slowly evolve over generations as they adjust to any changes in their environment.
For example, at the beginning of the essay when he talks about his situation in Burma “the sneering yellow faces of young men…got badly on my nerves” Orwell was able to express to the reader what he truly feels about his job and why he prefers to kill the elephant. Another example is in paragraph 11 he describes how the elephant looked after he was shot “[the elephant] looked suddenly stricken, shrunken, immensely old, as though…knocking him down”, during his encounter with the elephant he provides a detailed explanation of what is happening and what he is feeling about the situation. Using this idea of pathos, it lets the reader understand what he is going through and it allows the readers to be more engaged and to feel the intensity of the story. In addition, he is also using imagery in order to fully describe and illustrate to the readers what is going
In her article, “All’s Not Well in Land of ‘The Lion King’”, Margaret Lazarus tells of the time she took her children to see “The Lion King”. Throughout her essay she explains what she thought of the movie and how it affected her. She explains how the animals in the pridelands are paying tribute to the “infant son that will someday be their king”. Margaret sees them basically as lion food and that they all live together in “supposed harmony in the ‘circle of life’”. She goes on to explain how outside the kingdom there’s a dark gloomy and impoverished elephant graveyard full of hyenas that she feels are stereotyped as African Americans.
In May 2008, Goodall controversially described Edinburgh Zoo's new primate enclosure as a "wonderful facility" where monkeys "are probably better off [than those] living in the wild in an area like Budongo, where one in six gets caught in a wire snare, and countries like Congo, where chimpanzees, monkeys and gorillas are shot for food commercially. " This was in conflict with Advocates for Animals' position on captive animals.  In June 2008 Goodall confirmed that she had resigned the presidency of the organisation which she had held since 1998, citing her busy schedule and explaining, "I just don't have time for
For instance, when John goes to the hospital to see his mother, Linda, he sees the children staring at her with, “…the stupid curiosity of animals… (Huxley 295).” This shows the that individuals in the new world act more like animals than civilized humans. Another example is, "Alpha children wear grey…They all wear green, and Delta children wear khaki.…(Huxley 39)." This overall shows the different colors based on the different systems and classes of the society. Huxley add in colors to separate others and to distribute across the civilized new world.

We as a collective hole can call, write, or fax your U.S. congressional representative and senators and urge them to support legislation that protects endangered species and their habitats, increases funding for foreign aid programs that specifically address sustainable development and the conservation of global biodiversity.
