Many times people acquire animals for pets, only to neglect or mistreat them. For many years, the ethical treatment of animals has been a very controversial topic for moral discussion, often in reference to an ethical code or rule. In this paper, I will discuss these ethical issues identified with the treatment of animals as well as exploring these issues from a virtual ethicist’s perspective. Finally, on the basis of the description and application, an evaluation will be made of its value as an ethical theory. Animals have many attributes.
Animal welfare is a fairly recent, yet troubling argument in society. This subject is a strong argument on a variety of opinions.

Through decades of animal welfare, people fight to prevent the action of animal cruelty and bring help towards animal rights.
These are just two of many scenarios out there that animals suffer through but our society fails to acknowledge. We don’t focus on the negative aspects of these issues and others, because we are too dependent on the benefits that come from them. Members of an organization called People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are out to end society’s ignorance in regards to the awareness of animal abuse. Their mission is to inform and convince people of animal rights. Participants hold the belief that animals have the right to be protected from being used for food, experimentation, clothing, and entertainment (PETA).

There are many different kinds of veterinarians such as ones that work on farms, work with exotic animals, or ones that work with dogs and cats in a clinic. Veterinarians may also work in schools to educate others, or work with people to prevent animal to human disease transmission.
Animal Rights Ever since The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in England in 1824 was formed there has been long running debates on the topic of animal rights. The first societies were formed to protect and maintain human treatment of work animals, such as cattle, horses and house hold pets. Towards the end of the 19th century more organizations were formed, this time to protest the use of animals in scientific experimentation. In today’s society groups such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have continued these traditional fights as well as adding new agendas. These new agendas include hunting and fishing, and dissection of animals in science classes.
I am always inclined to pull over and bring the dog bowls of food and water. I cannot understand what makes a person neglect such a beautiful and innocent creature. My heart breaks for him, and all other animals like him that are suffering neglect and abuse. If I could lead a volunteer project, it would be one focused on stopping and preventing widespread animal abuse. Due to my leadership skills as a section leader, camp counselor, vice president, and more, I believe I can lead a successful volunteer project, with the goal of installing a set of stricter guidelines that animal owners should adhere by.

This helps bridge the gap between environment and families all over the world who love animals.
There are people do who do not like the Agriculture industry;some of these people are PETA, and there is tension between the two groups and I will be discussing the tension. So before you read this essay you may be thinking “ Who is PETA?” Well I will provide a little background information on who PETA is, PETA ( People for the Ethical Treatment for Animals) is a animal rights activist group who zone in on certain groups of people. One example of one of those groups would be the 4-H and the Agriculture world. So now that you know some basic background information, let’s go into some topic that have caused problems between the two sides.
