Animals Are Not Ours to Abuse
Every animal deserves a chance to thrive in a responsible and permanent home.
But for every companion animal who lives indoors with a human family and receives the attention, health care and emotional support that he or she needs, there are thousands just barely surviving. Millions of domestic animals never know a kind human touch and live hard lives on the street before dying equally hard deaths. Others suffer neglect at the hands of unfit guardians or are victims of deliberate cruelty.
The ‘Pet’ Trade
The “pet” trade treats animals like money-making commodities to be mass-produced and peddled for profit.
Thousands of animals across the UK have no guardian to care for them, let alone a warm, comfortable place to curl up at night. Many suffer and die on the streets or have to be euthanised for lack of good homes.
Cruelty to Animals
Every day, countless cats, dogs and other animals suffer and die at the hands of the very people who are supposed to care for and protect them.
