ASPCA- We Are Their Voice -<br />MB Nichols Company<br />
ASPCA<br />Animal Abuse is unfortunately more common than most people believe. <br />It’s not hard to care about a friend who loves you unconditionally, <br />& yet, <br />many animals suffer <br />at the very hands <br />of the ones they love. <br />
At all times…<br />In the State of California:<br />Animal cruelty is a criminal offense, punishable from a six month term in jail up to a one year term, <br />in state prison.<br />Financial penalties include fines from $1,000 up to $20,000 dollars.<br />IT’S WRONG!<br />
Statistics<br />As per media reports, in animal cruelty cases, <br />dogs are the most regular victims <br />of animal brutality. <br />Of the 1,880 cruelty cases media reported in 2007: <br /><ul><li>64.5%(1,212) involved dogs.
25%(470) involved other animals.</li></li></ul><li>Pit bulls represent an increasing percentage of total canine animal cruelty cases. <br />In 2000 and 2001, pit bulls were the victims in 13 percent of reported dog abuse cases. <br />In 2007, pit bulls were the victims in 25 percent of reported dog abuse cases.<br />

“We will never know <br />just how many animals are abused, <br />or by whom.” <br />“To get the numbers of abused animals <br />is impossible.”<br />“It is better to focus on why abuse happens,<br />and how we can prevent it.”<br /> <br />Read more: <br />http://socyberty.com/activism/there-are-no-accurate-animal-cruelty-statistics/#ixzz16vzwNvUR<br />
