I have been an animal lover my whole life. I was raised around animals so I've always felt comfortable with them in my life. I can't stand people that neglect, abuse or torture any animal. There is no excuse for it, they should have the same treatment done to them. I really wish society as a whole was aware of how serious this issue is. The older I get the less tolerant I am. I can't stand to even watch news stories about animal abuse/neglect or to even listen to the retelling of a story of an accident involving an animal. I've rescued many animals in my life and I know will save and love many more.
