Animal Respect

I think animal abusers should not be allowed to have their pets back for any reason. The law as of right now in california is ‘Cruelty to animals is defined as “Maliciously and intentionally maims, mutilates, tortures, or wounds a living animal, or maliciously and intentionally kills an animal; or overdrives, overloads, drives when overloaded, overworks, tortures, torments, deprives of necessary sustenance, drink, or shelter, cruelly beats, mutilates, or cruelly kills any animal or causes or procures any animal to be so treated.” Animals shall be seized and impounded and ownership forfeited. These crimes may be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, with punishment of a fine up to $20,000 and/or imprisonment up to 1 year. If a defendant is granted probation for a conviction, the defendant must pay for and successfully complete counseling as determined by the court. It is also a misdemeanor to “Carry or causes to be carried in or upon any vehicle or otherwise any domestic animal in a cruel or inhumane manner”. I think abuser like that should have no right to ever own a pet because if they do it once, they will do it again.

One reason why you  should never abuse your pet is that they can turn on you, and if they do turn on you, chances are the animal would likely be put to sleep, and that is unfair. You beat the animal, then it finally decides to defend itself and it dies. But nothing happens to you. That's not right. You should be the one to be punished; you beat him and all he did was defend himself and he's the one to die? That is unfair. How could someone live with themselves knowing they beat a living thing half way dead? “Not all animals will fight back and those that do, don't usually stand a chance at succeeding” i got this quote from “20 reasons why you shouldn't abuse animals”

No animal should be abused or deserve to suffer for your own pleasure. Abusing your pet just because you're having a bad day or your pet is not listening to you gives you no right to hurt them. Use that anger and go to the gym and punch a punching bag and not your pet. That's why it’s called a “PUNCHING BAG” not a “PUNCHING DOG.” Pets are for love and affection, not abuse. Animals have feelings just like humans.

Types of people who abuse their pets
Some people abuse their pets because it makes them feel powerful. Many people would hurt other people, but instead they hurt animals because animals are more helpless than people. Some people hurt their pets because they think they are taking control. There are people who abuse their pets because maybe they have experienced abuse before. There are people who think animals deserve no respect.

“In the early morning of July 24th, 1992, while residents of a northern Bronx, NY, neighborhood slept, 10 animals, part of a summer day camp for children there, were hacked to death. The savage intruder, still unidentified, left bloody lamb, pig, goat and rabbit carcasses scattered about their pens. A 21-year-old donkey, Pasado, beloved mascot of Kelsey Creek Park in Bellevue, WA, was dragged from his barn, strung up on a hangman’s noose and brutally beaten to death last April. His killers were the 20-year-old son of a police major, a 16-year-old and an 18-year-old.” As said in the article “America’s animal abuse problems”

Quarterback suspended:Breck Ruddick

Breck ruddick plays in the Missouri state football team and has been said that he abused his friends dog while watching over it. He broke his jaw and teeth. The owner could not locate her pet until a day later as said in the article. Ruddick was then suspended from his team and he would not get back on the team until the situation was resolved.

He is someone that's well known and should be a good role model not do harm to innocent animals. He shouldn't be putting a bad example on younger people he should have not done anything to a loving and caring animal. I get that sometimes your pet does not do what you ask them to do or does something bad but that gives no one a right to abuse their pets. I think there should be a law that if you abuse your pet you should go to jail for at least 2 years. I think that Ruddick should have been kicked off the team and not just suspended hurting an animal is the most horrible thing you can ever do and people you should get punished. Some peep should never own a pet if they don't know how to take care of them. I have seen many people hit their dogs and it's not a nice thing to see especially when it's a baby they are living they have blood running through their veins they have a beating heart just like us we should not hurt animals like we shouldn't hurt humans we should all live in peace. Love your animal and if you can't give them away to a family who will actually appreciate their presents and treat them like family not some toy. Their lives are in our hands we are their voice speak up and be heard.

Are these places really the best places for animals?

I disagree with some of the article “4 of the best places for animals” because i don't think anywhere in asia is the best place for dogs and cats because there are so many stray animals, yes they have animal shelters for animals but there hundreds maybe even thousands of stray animals. And that's why I don't think Hong Kong is such a great place for animals.

Most of the article I agree with because they are really great places but no matter how much we want to help animals we won't be able to rescue all of them but we still need to try to save the ones we can. In Switzerland it is illegal to cut a dogs tail off and I totally agree with that because it is never ok to cut off something that is very meaningful to something a dog's tail is so cute I don't understand why someone would like to cut it off. Some people think it's cool but it really isn't.

Germany is also a good place for animals I guess because no matter if there are stray dogs the people take care of the animals and love the animals like if it was there's and many people go to Germany as a vacation and many of those people care about those animals and feed them they just have a great heart and feed the stray dogs and try to give them shelter.

In the U.K. If you are under 16 you can not buy a dog and I think that's a good idea because there are many immature kids that like to mess with dogs to the point where they are almost dead and so I agree with that idea. If the parent buys you a puppy that's cool because everyone one deserves to grow up with a best friend but if an underage kid buys a puppy without the parent's permission the parents may not want the puppy and let them out the house and they will become stray dogs that's why I agree with this article.

I'd like to thank my teacher for choosing this article for me because it was kinda challenging to agree with most of this article and trying to explain why I agree and disagree with the article “4 of the best places for animals”.

*made up short story

Kim is 5 years young her mother had bought her a puppy before she passed away. The puppy was a female husky named kisses because she loved giving kisses she was a lovable puppy. Kim loved her puppy so much she would take her to school everyday until her teacher had told her to not bring her puppy to school because it was a distraction to the kids in the class. The next day kim had to leave kisses with her father. Kim's dad was in his early 30’s and his name was conner. Later that day Conner had forgotten to feed kisses. Conner was looking for kisses all over the house and did not find her in her room. Conner started to freak out because he couldn't find her, he then saw her in his shoe closet and saw that kisses had ripped up his good shoes. Conner got really mad and started smacking and kicking kisses. The puppy ran to her room. She was frightened by what just happened. When ki got home she tried to pick up kisses but she would only whimper and she didn't know what was wrong with her so she asked her father and her father told her that she had rolled down the stairs. Everyday after that day her father would beat kisses until Kim turned 9 years old. Kim found out that her father would beat her dog because she caught him while he was beating kisses. Kim tried to stop him but he just smacked her in the face. After that day he realized he was a horrible person and went to therapy everyday while he was in jail and also when he got out of jail he went to therapy until her got better. Conner was not there for Kim's first kiss story, he was not there for her first breakup and heartbreak, he was not there for her when she needed help on her math homework, he wasn't there for her 8th grade graduation or her high school graduation, he wasn't there when she got the good news that she was accepted to Harvard, and finally he was not there to watch her grow up into the amazing young lady all because her father made the mistake of hurting an animal.

The moral of this story is that if you hurt your pet you will most likely end up hurting your child and will not be able to watch her or him grow up.

Having a Pet Can Be Healthy
By: Areli Silva (
Brenda Mejia (Animals)
It is scientifically proven fact that you can be happy by having a pet in your life. One of the facts is that they make you more happy and help you be healthy. Having a dog helps you keep in shape or help your pet and yourself to be much healthier because by walking your dog, you and your pet get exercise or just buy playing with your pet. Exercise is really important both for the human body and the animal body it's important for your pet because it makes the bones stronger and it is important for a person to walk as well because that way you don't become weak and unhealthy. I was reading an article “how often should one walk their dog?” And it said that it depended on what breed your pet is.

Stress Relief
When you have had a long day and are stressed you can hang around your pet because they are positive and lovable. Having your pet around is always a great thing. Having your pet around when you are stressed is good because it releases stress and is a proven fact because you are around good vibes and happy living souls.

Cheer you up
Animals are always cheerful and you can always count on them to make you happy and being happy is healthy for you and your pet. Pets are a must have when you're the type of person that doesn't like to be alone by themselves all the time they can also help you when you are depressed they tickle you with their nose or like you until you laugh or smile because they want to see you happy and not sad.

They reduce blood pressure
Happy talk, speaking in an upbeat tone, or laughter around animals releases hormones in humans that lower blood pressure, and make animals feel better too.

They relax you
Petting your cat or dog may be really enjoyable for them, but the it can also relax you, as well. Moore suggests petting with a purpose to increase the release of feel-good hormones in animals and humans. Give your dog or cat a head-to-tail therapeutic massage by running hand over hand through the body.

Having a pet is the most amazing thing you can do I guarantee you, because having an animal around you just makes you happy, and if you're happy they're happy. Areli and I did this calbertion blog together because we care about humans health and also animals health.

passion blog

My blog is about animals and mostly about animal abuse. I chose this topic because I'm really passionate about animals. I probably like animals more than I like people because animals are so loving. If a dog is mean i think it's the owners fault because they didn't raise their pet right. People that get their dogs to get into dog fights are the worst. I had a dog but I had to give it away because I was moving into a home that did not allow pets so I had to give him away and I gave him away to my neighbor's brother and I didn't know he had dogs in dog fights before and my dog was the friendliest dog ever and then I found out that my dog had been put in dog fights and had passed away I was devastated I love my dog so much and after the guy had him he was mean all the time he would bark at people and tried to bit them it was horrible. I had another dog but I also had to give him away and I gave it to my dad's friend and he said that “he thought he tied him right” because he had him in the back of the truck and my dog jumped out in the freeway and that's why I love animals so much because I hate seeing them hurt or frightened. I love all types of animals I'm always at my uncle's farm because he has cows, chickens, goats, horses, dogs, and cats. I just love being surrounded by animals
