Animals do not deserve this kind of life style were they are abused and neglected they should feel safe and love and for this reason is why people should stop animal cruelty. Animal cruelty makes animals suffer when hurt; cause owners to abandoned there animals and left homeless and also causes some animals to be put into dangerous situations. “The infliction of physical pain, suffering or death upon an animal goes back to ancient times”(Animal cruelty history). For several years animals have been abused and neglected for unreasonable purposes. The human society of the United States believes that “People with emotional problems may beat, shoot, or stab animals or set them on fire”(Animal abuse and neglect).
95% of people don’t want to see animal abuse and wouldn’t want the abuser to have another pet again. In my opinion, animal abuse is very wrong, since animals can’t speak for themselves; people need to know animal abuse is cruel and unfair. There are two different types of animal abuse: Intentional and unintentional. Intentional animal abuse is the worst type of abuse because you intentionally hurt animals. The abusers hurt animals because they enjoy doing it.
People around the world have grown fond over animals and keep a majority of them as pets in their households. Animals don’t know what’s right or wrong and shouldn’t be blamed for their actions. Many people abuse animals like dogs and cats just because they’re angry or the animal did something it wasn’t supposed to do. Animal Shelters around the United States have abused and killed animals just because there wasn’t enough room in the shelter. Shelters around the United States get away with abusing animals and usually get off with a slap on the wrist.
Animals Rights Is it fair that animals have to go through abuse neglect and torture every day over a simple fact that humans do not believe animals do not have rights? Humans use and kill animals for food or clothing. Because people or humans think of animals as property so they do as they please with animals Some people believe that animals should be treated in the same way humans are and have familiar rights, where others think that it is more important to use them as they desire for food and medical research.

The laws put in place to protect your property “are in fact not even intended to protect animals and their interests, but to serve human interests.” (Tannenbaum 2) Basically, this means that the only reason that the laws were created was to please the people who made them. They were not made to protect the animals. These laws that were instated cover many subjects but most obvious are: forced reproduction (mills); any form of cruelty (mostly intentional harm); and fighting. Scattered across the United States there are animal owners breeding designer animals indiscriminately: animals in tiny, wired cages. Imagine being confined to an area that is so small that you cannot stretch or walk erect.
Animal cruelty is any act of violence or neglect against an animal. A few things one may have seen are an animal tied up outside for all hours of the day with no food or water or maybe a person has seen an owner purposely hit their dog. Animals, like humans, have feelings and reactions to the way they are handled: abused animals could become dangerous to society. Society most often defines animal cruelty as the infliction of physical pain, suffering, or death upon an animal when not necessary for purposes of training, discipline, or to procure food (MSPCA Angell 1). If the animal is hurt not to procure food, or release the animal from incurable suffering but wantonly for mere sport, the indulgence of a cruel and vindictive temper, or with reckless indifference to its pain it is also considered animal cruelty (“Animal Cruelty Law and Legal Definition” 1).
While some laws and organizations exist to help prevent animal cruelty, lack of awareness surrounding animal cruelty issues has allowed many forms of animal cruelty to continue without an attempt of being stopped. One of the biggest issues for animal cruelty is the lack of awareness. Animal testing is one form of animal cruelty that should be illegal because it is inhumane, unethical, and the results that come from it cannot always be accurately compared to the results that would come from human beings. Regan Singer says, “To assume that humans are inevitably superior to other species simply by virtue of their species membership is an injustice”, which Singer terms "speciesism," which is an injustice parallel to racism and sexism. What he means is that animals are conscious creatures that are aware of their environment and have goals , desires, and emotions.
Inflicting pain and making our animals suffer is atrocious. Because our animals can 't speak for themselves, we need to speak for them and stop animal abuse. Animal cruelty can be either abuse or simply the failure to take care of an animal. Either way, whether the animal is a pet, a farm animal or wildlife, the victim can suffer terribly. According to HumanSociety.org, neglect is not giving an animal necessary food, water, shelter or vet care.
When it comes to the needless torture of animals that we claim to benefit, the animals lives need to be taken into consideration. S. F. Sapontzis gives his theory as to why animals should not be used in testing. To start with, animals are not capable of giving their consent to be used as subjects in an experiment. Secondly, "experiments can only be performed on an individual who is willing, morally speaking. Therefore it is immoral to use animals in experiments" (Sapontzis 209).
