Signs of Animal Abuse
What should we do if we identify that an animal is being abused?

Animal abuse is when someone hurts an animal or does not responsibly care for an animal. Common examples are: not giving food, water, or healthcare to a pet. It is against the law to be cruel to, or harm an animal, even if they are your own pets.
