    8. 8. ♫ You can help an animal recover by adopting one! You have some extra space? Don’t go to the pet store go to a shelter! ♫ You can also suggest to other people to adopt. ♫ You can put up flyers outside of your local gas station. ♫ Or you could just visit the shelter every once in awhile to talk to the animals. ♫ Let’s say you want to earn some extra money, try applying at your local shelter.
    9. 9. ♫ These animals have been rescued by the ASPCA. ♫ These were all abused in some form. ♫ They are currently up for adoption.

    13. 13. ♫ Teach your children to be gentle and loving with animals. ♫ Tell them, animals have souls too and you wouldn’t want their feelings hurt. ♫ Also, have them feed the pet or take it out.
    14. 14. ♫ You cannot abandon your pet. ♫ You cannot inflict pain upon your pet. ♫ You cannot drug your pet in any way. ♫ You cannot injure your pet. These are pretty straight-forward but keep them in mind if you see an animal being left out in the rain or snow without shelter, or if the animal is going hungry.
    15. 15. ♫ Puppy mills are mass dog- breeding operations. ♫ The dogs are left in unsanitary conditions. ♫ Often after the mother cannot breed she is killed. ♫ Profit is put over the well- being of the dogs. ♫ Many of the dogs are sold to pet stores and usually have a lot of problems.
    16. 16. ♫ Dog fighting happens all over America and you don’t even know it. ♫ The dogs are forced to fight and the trainers get the profit. ♫ Pit bulls are usually used and the dogs often die.
