Stop Animal Abuse

  1. 1. We need you on our side!   You don’t have to be a cop, lawyer or judge to fight animal cruelty.  All you need is the courage to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves.
  2. 2. Without concerned citizens, who report  cruelty ,we wouldn’t know about most instances of animal abuse.  It all starts with YOU—that's why it's so important to keep your eyes and ears open.
  3. 3. Tick or flea infestations  Wounds on the body.  Patches of missing hair.  Extremely thin, starving animals.  Limping.  Dogs who are repeatedly left alone without food &  water, often chained up in a yard. Dogs who are kept outside without shelter in  extreme weather conditions. An owner striking or otherwise physically abusing  an animal. Animals who cower in fear or act aggressively  when approached by their owners.
  4. 4. Rely on the police department to  investigate animal cruelty.  You may have to contact local animal control or another municipal agency.  Provide as much as information as possible when reporting animal cruelty.  It helps to write down: The type of cruelty that you witnessed, who was involved, the date of the incident & where it took place.
  5. 5. Know your state's animal cruelty laws. • These vary from state to state, & even from city to city. Fight for the passage of strong anti- cruelty laws on federal, state and local levels by joining the ASPCA Advocacy Brigade.
  6. 6. If you have pets, be sure to always  show them the love and good care that they deserve.  If you think your animal is sick, bring him to the veterinarian.  Be responsible and have your animals spayed or neutered.
  7. 7. Talk to your children about how to  treat animals.  If a parent isn't treating the family's pets right, the children won’t either.
  8. 8. Volunteer at an animal shelter.   Take in foster animals who have been abused in their former homes.  Donations are welcome!
