Animal cruelty (03/31/2013)

From: Eve Ford

I am writing to encourage people to support efforts to end or reduce animal cruelty in our lifetime and lifetimes to come. Our silence is our approval.

Inflicting pain and suffering on animals is surely a sign of cowardly behavior which has, according to pet-abuse.com, increased the numbers of current animal abuse classifications in Minnesota to 197, with 54 of these cases being neglect and abandonment, 34 cases being hoarding, and 30 cases being shootings (these are not hunting figures). These numbers are being updated daily.

While animal cruelty is a significantly huge problem, and we cannot protect every animal from senseless and inhumane cruelty, there are things that each one of us can do locally which will contribute toward making things better for the animals in our area and around the world.

• Make donations to animal support organizations

• Volunteer at the local animal shelter

• Help your neighbors help their animals

• Promote spaying and neutering

• Consider adoption

• Create animal abuse awareness by talking with your friends and family

• Support animal rights organizations such as the ASPCA, PETA, HSUS, or NWF

• Write letters to our local and national leaders encouraging them to fight for tougher laws on animal crimes

• Report animal cruelty

• Start a neighborhood watch program

We are the animals’ caretakers, voice, hope, and future.

Please do what you can to diminish animal cruelty.
