Dogs will be forced to take euthanasia if they were not adopted for a period of time. Approximately, there are 33000 dogs killed every year, this figure shows how severe the problem is.

The Ethical Treatment of Animals Alyssa Taylor SOC 120 Instructor David Strand July 15, 2013 Even though they are not able to communicate and speak out against the way they may or may not feel about the way they are treated, people should take notice that animals are loving creatures too. An animal is able to feel pain justr as well as any human being. When someone hits a dog, they cry out. When someone starves a cat, they cry out and then usually die. Anything someone can do to physically hurt a human being, that same act can physically hurt an animal as well.

Animal Liberation By: Peter Singer “Animal Liberation” is a novel highlighting the ignorance of people about what animals go through in order to fulfill whatever humans need. Whether it is meals or experimentation, millions of animals suffer each year.

The eyes of the bunnies often become irritated, infected, and even blind.
Fur is not a fashion statement: Humans have been using animal skins and furs in clothing for centuries. With a growing demand for fur and leather over the past century, clothing produced from animals has gone from being functional to being fashionable. Mass production of fur and leather items has created a harsh system of fur farming, trapping, and skinning which has sparked uproar among animal rights activists. With the current demand for animal clothing, approximately 31 million animals are killed in fur farms each year. Sheep and cows are bred and slaughtered; foxes and rabbits caged and killed, wild animals shot or trapped, to make clothes and shoes from their skin and fur.
