Web. 29 Apr. 2015. <http://www.humanesociety.org/issues/abuse_neglect/facts/animal_cruelty_facts_statistics.html>. On this site I learned the basic facts and statistics of animal abuse along with how different types of animals are abused, and how it plays a role in different kinds of violence.

Web. 29 Apr. 2015. <http://www.americanhumane.org/interaction/support-the-bond/fact-sheets/animal-abuse-domestic-violence.html>. On this website I learned more facts and statistics along with different laws that deal with animal abuse.

Laidlaw, Rob. No Shelter Here: Making the World a Kinder Place for Dogs. Toronto: Pajama, 2011. Print. From this book I learned a lot of facts on dogs and how to properly treat them and give them love, and how many people do terrible things to dogs, like puppy mills, leaving them to die, beating them, and just many other bad things, but most of all it showed how you can help and save dogs from these situations

Taylor, T. Shawn. "Animal Abuse Is A Cruel Reality." The Chicago Tribune 16 May 1997: n. pag. The Chicago Tribune. The Chicago Tribune. Web. 5 May 2015. <http://articles.chicagotribune.com/1997-05-16/news/9705160309_1_humane-society-animal-cruelty-pets>. This news article gave many instances of animal abuse in and around Chicago, and how some people invested money to save these animals, whereas others beat them and left them to die or killed them, even children participated in this. It left saying how animal abuse is almost becoming a normal thing, and people who participate in animal abuse are more likely to participate in other acts of violence.

Book- Riddle, John. Veterinarian. Broomall, PA: Mason Crest, 2003. Print.
This source helped me to find closer information on the people who treat animals. A veterinarian is a person qualified to treat diseased or injured animals. Veterinarians save animals lives everyday. They can also protect humans against diseases carried by animals and conduct clinical research on human and animal health problems.

"Advocacy for Animals." Advocacy for Animals Animal Rights Redux Comments. N.p., n.d. Web. 29 Apr. 2015.
This source helped me to find ways that we can save animals. Different ways that people in America can save animals is by adopting an animal, simply taking care of your animal or animals, appreciating wildlife, reporting animal abuse, and helping the AHA protect the nation's animals. This website also informed me that the week of May 3-9 is a special week in the United States known as "Be Kind to Animals Week."

"Learning to Give, Philanthropy Education Resources That Teach Giving and Civic Engagement." Learning to Give. N.p., n.d. Web. 29 Apr. 2015.
This source helped me to learn more about the history of animal abuse. I learned more about the importance to animal abuse. Some key related ideas to animal abuse are animal welfare, animal rights, and the Animal Welfare Act. A few important people related to this topic are, Henry Bergh, Richard Martin, and Dr. Randall Lockwood.

Magazine- Siebert, Charles. "The Animal-Cruelty Syndrome." N.p., n.d. Web.
In this source, the connection between animal abuse and other forms of violence is drawn. I identified that the subject of animal abuse has a achieved a higher profile after the 2007 arrest of the N.F.L star, Michael Vick, for operating an illegal interstate dog fighting operation in Surry County, Va. This source not only shows the importance of animal abuse, it also shows the effect humans can leave on animals. This source also points out many statistics on animals abuse.

Journal- Ascione, Frank R. "Animal Abuse and Youth Violence." (n.d.): n. pag. Print.
This source shows reports and statistics on animal abuse. This source also showed comparisons between animal and human abuse. Animals abuse was compared to things like domestic violence, sexual abuse, and physical abuse. This source also shows the etiology of animals abuse.
