This is a world problem because animals all around the world are being abused, and slaughtered, resulting in the death of the animals.
"...there is no logical basis the way in which we treat animals in research;in fact, we would not tolerate such treatment if the animals were Homo sapiens; therefore we cannot tolerate such treatment for other sentient creatures that, like us, are able to experience and suffer pain"

Not respecting animal rights results in animal abuse and/or deaths.
We can solve this issue by creating more laws to protect animals and reinforcing the laws with bigger penalties.
Ex.

$35.000 fine
and
2 years in jail
No experiments on animals
No killing animals for food or clothes or medicine
No use of animals for hard labor
No hunting
No zoos or use of animals in entertainment

This includes:
(2014 BBC)
Using this solution, this will result in less animal abuse by having people be more afraid and aware of the consequences it will bring.
This will help the animals because less people would use them for clothes, testing, and neglect, thus reducing the rate animal abuse.
Animal rights would be a lot more respected.
This increases the number of abuse cases against animals.
More animals are victims of testing or used for clothes, affecting their physical appearance, not making them fit for their environment.
