Animal Abuse: How You Can Prevent It From Happening

Animal abuse is one of the most important topics for us to discuss, but it’s also among the most difficult to contemplate. Animal lovers can’t understand the psychology behind animal abuse, yet it happens every day.

In many cases, abuse isn’t as obvious as one might think. For instance, a dog owner who leaves the animal outside in 100-degree temperatures without water or shade all day is abusing that dog, yet there might not be outward signs of the abuse.

Animal abuse also often takes place far from the public’s prying eyes. You wouldn’t know if your neighbor was abusing an animal unless he or she brought the activity outside where you could see it.

You might resist eating a vegan diet because, well, you were raised eating meat, dairy, and eggs. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t switch now. And it’s not as hard as it sounds.

Animal Rights Groups: What Are They and What Do They Do

what are animal rights groups

Animal rights groups exist for one reason: Because animals need them. Animals can’t fight for themselves beyond teeth and nails, which are essentially useless against human beings as a collective, so we have to do something to protect them.

People start new animal rights groups every day, whether they’re local, national, or global. We often think of animal rights as the fight to save household pets, but the truth is that animals need our help all over the world.

Elephants, sharks, zebras, cheetahs, killer whales, and hundreds of other animals are the subject of animal exploitation every day. Some are killed, while others are used for human purposes that affect their ability to thrive.

animal rights activists

Animal Rights Activists: What Are They & What Do They Do

Animal rights activists live all around the world and spend some or most of their time protesting or otherwise working against factory farming, and animal testing and other abuses of the animal kingdom. An animal activist believes that animals deserve to live happy, cruelty-free lives, and in addition does something towards a world where that is possible.

What many people don’t realize is that animal rights activists aren’t just the people you see holding up signs when you’re commuting to work in the morning. They’re certainly not violent protestors who burn down lab buildings with the animals inside.

In fact, they’re people you work with, people in your family, and people you pass on the street every day on your way to work. Sure, some of them do hold signs and attend protests. Others are animal rights activists in their own way.

So what are animal rights activists – and should you maybe be one, too? Let’s dive deep into this subject and figure out what animal activism really means for people who love animals.

Vegetarianism: What It Means To Be A Vegetarian

Vegetarianism isn’t some new fad. In fact, the first vegetarian society was formed in England in the mid-1800s, and the practice dates back to Pythagoras — or perhaps even further.
