What is Animal Abuse/Cruelty
Not Providing Adequate Shelter – pets that are left tied up outside in the rain, snow, wind, and sun without adequate shelter is a form of abuse. All animals should have the opportunity to shelter themselves from the elements. Not Seeking Medical Treatment – this applies to everything from leaving serious physical injuries untreated to not taking steps to properly safeguard a pet from flea and tick infestations and heart worms. Malnourished Pets – Anytime you can see an animals ribs clearly, they are malnourished and in need of care. Frequent abandonment – Pets that are frequently left alone for extended periods of time without a pet sitter or anyone to check in on them to make sure they are in good health and their basic needs are being met. Physical Abuse – Striking, choking, or incapacitating an animal in any way
