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. The ASPCA and spokesperson, Sarah McLachlan are trying to convey a message to the public that there is an urgent need to donate money to save the lives of animals being abused and neglected. This appeal to the ethical(ethos), emotional(pathos), and logical(logos) senses of the audience to expose the evils of animal cruelty and convey to the audience that animals are in need of help.
When talking about justice, it becomes problematic to define the concepts and understand who should be the receiver and in what way they should receive justice. Nevertheless, for humans, there is always someone being an advocate for their rights, at least the person interested in a government or a society respecting their own human rights. For animals it is another story since animals do not have the option of communicating and fighting for their rights alone, people need to be the advocates of this group. In recent times, the justice that needs to be given towards animals has become an ardent issue with different opinions in the matter. These opinions, however, need a basic theory of justice to base their arguments and legitimize them.
Elizabeth is an avid supporter of animal rights who guest lectures at her son’s work to showcase the issues of “animal cruelty”. Although the thought of treating animals humanely is an agreeable argument to side by, Costello’s approach to the subject was incorrect.

In order to accomplish this mission PETA euthanizes innocent animals. Radke also states, “While ranchers tend to their stock… PETA employees are busy euthanizing healthy animals.” In agriculture, farmers and ranchers raise livestock, such as pigs and cows, and they could also own dogs and horses as pets. Agriculture is defined as the practice of cultivating plants and heading animals for food, fiber, and other products (Jokisch). If the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals were to accomplish their mission it would not only affect the raising of livestock, but the feces of these animals is also a rich source of nutrients for the production of their crops. Also, it will affect these farmers’ and ranchers’ source of
In this article, there will be an argument made for the ideologies of welfarism and utilitarianism. At the core of welfarism it is believed that although humans can still use animals for various uses, we must also minimize the general suffering of the animals in questions. Opposingly utilitarianism is the belief system that we must maximize beneficial outcomes and neutralize dreadful outcomes for all parties. Both apply to a range of fields, that will be discussed further in the article. This includes the issues of killing animals for food, using animals for lab testing, and the counter arguments to both.
Henry Beston, a naturalist, once wrote that animals “are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.” Animal activists from around the world have been trying to end animal cruelty in the circus, SeaWorld, and dog shows for years. While others argue that this is what animals were bred to do, entertain. Animals should not be used and mistreated for human entertainment. Dog shows, circuses and SeaWorld have been mistreating and exploiting defenseless animals for as long as they have been around. The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is a famous dog show that parades around 3,000 dogs around New York’s Madison Square Garden.

These days, many companies use a variety of methods for product development and stability verification. One of them, animal experimentation, has been a controversial issue in the past until now and it has also confronted with various reactions in regards to its admissibility. We need to respect and cherish the dignity of animals. They are, like humans, are entitled to basic needs and their way of life should not be intervened and determined by human beings. Also, animal experiments are an act of looking at animals and ignoring their basic rights as living beings.
