I Am Against Animal Cruelty

    If you haven't already,

    you must watch the documentary Earthlings. You will probably spend most of the film either covering your eyes, or cowering in sheer disgust, as I certainly did, but it is nonetheless a very important document of animal cruelty. If you are able to watch this film, bear witness to...

    I love all animals and like those "Arms of an

    Angel" commercials seriously make me like sick to my stomach I just don't understand why someone would hurt an animal. I mean I get that people eat them and even though I avoid red meat, I eat other stuff, but like why do people experiment on animals. That's so wrong. In the...

    I hate abusers! My dog is a rescue.

    Her name is Penda. She has two purple spots on her ears where hair doesn't grow anymore. And a dent in her very lower back. She is scared of loud noises. And she gets depressed around the Christmas holidays. She is almost 7 but still acts like a puppy. More so now that we got...

    Whoever thinks it's ok to hurt innocent

    animals needs to put their soul back in the body. It's sickening to see people treat things that have kept us warm at night and have been are companies for over 300 years with such disrespect.

    I dream of the day where animals & their rights

    are as equally legal in the eyes of the judicial system as human rights-& those who violate animals. I live in Perth, Western Australia. I'm not really sure how severely this equates to larger countries. I don't watch the news anymore. Used to-just wanted to be kept up with the...

    Animal Cruelty is heartbreaking,

    & gets me all teary eyed &(furious at the same time). I am definitely doing my part to help a number of non profit rescue agencies stop the abuse & give the animals a happy life they deserve-ASPCA, Best Friends, & Humane Society of the United States. No animal deserves this...

    Humans harm millions of animals each day.

    They can abuse them, kill them in the cruelest of ways, and we often don't receive any punishment for our actions. Yet when a single one of these animals decides to fight back, it gets killed. Perhaps not everyone agrees with me, but I think that this is one of the greatest...

    A dog is a mans best friend.

    When friends as family turn against us and leave us on our own, due to our own faults or simple cruelness, a dog will stand loyal to us. A dog will lick the hand of it's pauper master who has no food to offer. A dog cares not if we are young or old, rich or poor, sick or healthy...

    Animals are one of the greatest gifts ever! I know for a fact that I'd be lost without mine! I wouldn't even want to picture a life without them. For anyone to hurt an animal, well they deserve to burn in the hottest pit of hell!

    Animals are conscious,

    and as such deserve to be afforded the same respect a human should be afforded. Animals in the wild, especially. You are on their turf, not the other way around. Don't intrude. Stay out of the way. Animal abuse, whether industrial or individual, sickens and angers me. I don't...

    Animals are innocent beings.

    They don't know what is happening to them when they experience cruelty. They just feel the pain. Call it what you will, but I don't put up with animal cruelty.
