Animal Abuse and Abandonment Our Side Our Statement Animal abuse affects the food chain in the enviroment, and then if people capture those animals they might return it to the humane society and it costs alot of money to keep all of the animals and maybe eventually kill them. Facts/Statistics Every year 6 to 8 million dogs and cats enter sheltersand 3 to 4 million shelter dogs and cats are killed.

13% of international animal abusecases involve domestic violence 70% of animal abusers also had records for other crimes Incidents
In Southwestern Minnesota a cat named Timothy was glued to the interstate. July 8, 2007 Caring for Cats, a St.Paul animal shelter, recieved a 4 month old kitten who was found in a parking lot nearby Maplewood, Minnesota. The kitten had a shoelace wrapped around her neck and an oily substance with sand embeded in her mouth and whiskers. She also had a feverand multiple lesions to her right rear leg and paw and her right front paw pad was red and raw. Reasons
