Animal Cruelty

  1. 1. CompanionAnimal CrueltyCreated by: Kaleigh Abbott
  2. 2. How is it defined?Cruelty to animals- crime of inflicting physical pain, suffering, or death on an animal, usually a tame one, beyond necessity for normal discipline.
  3. 3. Passive Cruelty► Passive cruelty is more neglect than physical.► Dehydration, starvation, parasite infestation, and inadequate shelter are examples of passive cruelty.► In many cases, investigators try to educate the owner rather than take immediate action.
  4. 4. Active Cruelty► Active cruelty is the deliberate attempt to harm the animal.► This type of behavior is most commonly related to sociopathic behavior.► Many times the adult may try to threaten or kill the household pet to pressure the family into doing something, “flexing” their power.
  5. 5. Statistics► In media-reported animal cruelty cases, dogs in particular are the most common of the 1,880 cases reported in 2007.► 64.5% (1,212) involved dogs► 18% (337) involved cats► 25% (470) involved other animals
  6. 6. What is the impact?Animals have feelings and feel pain just likewe do. The only difference is they can’t speak out about it. “If we wish to create a humane society, we must stop cruelty against those who are most vulnerable- like animals.” -ASPCA
  7. 7. There is a penalty in Ohio!► In 2010, Ohio revised Senate Bill 55.► This bill now says that each offense is a second degree misdemeanor.► The maximum penalty is 90 days in jail and a $750 fine.► Sadly, Ohio is one of the only states that provides only a misdemeanor.
  8. 8. High Caliber K-9High Caliber K-9, a kennel in Youngstown, Ohio, was foundwith seven dead and twelve starving dogs on the premises.The owner only received four month jail time.
  9. 9. Why should you care? In the United States, sixty-two percent of homes have pets. About 78.2 million dogs are owned in the U.S. About 86.4 million cats are owned in America. Think about how many of those animals are abused and neglected.
  10. 10. Look at these!This dog was starved. This dog was muzzled and had it’s paws tied to it’s collar.
  11. 11. You have to the power!► By donating to the following organizations you can make a difference in an animals life:PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals)ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)Your local humane society
