In America, we come across serious environmental issues about poverty, domestic abuse, ending world hunger ect. Animal cruelty isn’t one of those topics that isn’t being put out there more. We see it all around like the commercials on tv that tell you to donate money to help the poor stray dogs. People don’t see how much damage we can cause to them, but if we got together we can help stop this madness. In the article, Counting cruelty: Challenges and opportunities in assessing animal abuse and neglect in America it briefly says “Cruelty to animals is a crime.” (Lockwood 87). Laws were made for this problem way back. Our laws help keep society in a proper place with no hysteria.Which means people like us should pay attention more to our surroundings.
Animals are smart,caring, adorable, loving, and sometimes they’re even heroes. For example, a woman name Kathie, a paraplegic, got saved by her Rottweiler from an exploding vehicle. When the dog saw her owner endangered near the fire she quickly took action and pulled on Kathie’s jeans and got her far enough from the flaming vehicle so that she wouldn’t get hurt. Even though not everyone’s pet is a “hero” it doesn’t mean that animals should be neglected, abused, abandoned, or starved. This is why there are laws prohibiting any person from inflicting, causing, or, permitting, unnecessary pain or suffering to be inflicted on any animal. The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals Act makes it a crime to beat, kick, torture, mutilate, or cruelly kill an animal. Unfortunately, this still continues to be a major problem in the United States.

Glossary Bibliography Chapter 1: Animal Cruelty “Imagine being abused by someone you trust and who is supposed to love you, and to make the situation worse, you can’t use your voice to cry out for help. Animals are like humans except they can’t tell people to stop.” Animal cruelty and abuse, a good website, said that. I think that is a big problem we need to fix.

“Hormone-free”, “organic”, “grass-fed”, and “natural” are labels that animal and plant producers use to inform consumers of what they are eating. These claims are misleading and usually increase the prices of those products. By increasing the price and sticking a label that reads “natural” makes consumers think that this product is better for them. Animal Welfare Approved gives an example of an egg carton boasting the statement that its eggs are “natural.” This statement can legally come from an industrial farm where the hens do not forage the way a chicken does “naturally.” According to the USDA, farms have to get organic certifications and accreditations in order to sell, label, and represent their products as organic. It is difficult to

It is against the law to be cruel to or harm animals, even your own pets. It's also called animal abuse, or neglect.

Just because they know they can, and the animal can’t fight back and most likely one hundred percent of the time the animal doesn’t even know why it’s getting beaten on, it’s so sad how cruel and monstrous the human species can
