Animal cruelty is a serious issue today. It's not right that people should beat, choke, and mistreat helpess animals who can't defend themselves. Many people aren't aware that it is such a big issue, but it is. Also, local shelters may not have enough funds to treat abused animals which only increases the issue. I want as many people to be aware of this, to donate to animal shelters, report abuse, and help stop animal cruelty once and for all.
