Animals are living creatures and most of us often forget about it. Although they cannot speak our language, they can understand us and often suffer from human cruelty.

Report any animal abuse
If you know someone who beats their pets to death or does not feed them for weeks, report the abuse. No one has the right to abuse animals and leave them hungry, pain and disease. Don’t be quiet. Let others know how that person treats animals. In this way, it can save the lives of those poor living things.
