There are many success stories in helping abused animals, thankfully. So many have helped improve conditions for animals. Yet, the successes only skim the surface. The amount of challenges and suffering that animals are facing is beyond belief, a terrible horror.
Helping Abused Animals Success Stories
Rescue organizations are saving animals, for example, SOS Wildlife saved elephants from abuse and poor conditions; Soi Dog Foundation saved many dogs from torture and death. Many organizations (see directory for sample) and many nameless people are helping abused animals where ever they can.
“Greyhound trainers sentenced to PRISON for animal cruelty”, thanks to Animals Australia investigations to achieve justice for the victims of live baiting. Animals Australia rescued some lucky greyhounds after they retired from racing. Otherwise, they would have faced death at retirement.
“Tennessee Becomes First State to Create Animal Abuser Registry”, as reported by Pet360. “According to the National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS), which is dedicated to ending the exploitation of animals used in science, lawmakers in 10 states introduced but failed to pass bills establishing an animal abuser registry before the end of the 2015 legislative session. Those states are: Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.”
As reported by Independent News, notable success stories include reduction in abusive animal entertainment, reduction in brutal religious animal sacrifice, bans on fox-hunting with more than 2 dogs, retirement of federally owned chimpanzees from lab experimentation, some countries banned animal-sex tourism and cosmetics & household-product testing on animals, horse-drawn carriages, no more breeding of orcas for SeaWorld.
Petitions have helped bring justice. As Animal Petitions notes, successes include less baby monkeys being tortured in labs, vet’s license revoked for killing a cat brutally, turtle-abusing and pig wrestling events cancelled, lions returning home, mittens donated for burned koalas, airlines banning the transporting of wildlife trophies.
Many more vegan restaurants and food options are blooming. More people are eating less animal products. as they are becoming more aware of the brutality that exists behind food products.
Helping Abused Animals Continued Challenges
These successes are great but only skim the surface.
- Farm animals are still tortured for food. Dogs and cats are tortured before being killed for food because of the perceived benefits.
- Live frogs are encased in key chains to suffocate.
- Zoos are acting as jails, leaving many animals in small cages where they can’t move much or alone as in the Bronx Zoo lonely elephant case.
- Wild animals killed for trophies.
- Elephants and rhinos on the verge of extinction, yet poached and killed for their tusks for ivory trinkets.
- Horrible quarantine facilities for animals to die in. Kill ‘shelters’.
- Skins of animals ripped off their live bodies and electrocution for fur and leather.
- Animal entertainment continues torturing. Bull, horse, dog and other animal fighting, torture and killing.
- Puppy mills.
- Insensitive families leaving their pets out on chains and in fidget cold weather unprotected and lonely.
- Pet owners giving up their pets because they just don’t want them anymore, leaving them to die in shelters and feel bereavement at being abandoned by their ‘loving’ families.
- Stuffing of ducks forcefully for Foie Gras.
- Garbage thrown into the sea.
- And if that is not enough, there are always some people who enjoy torturing and killing animals for fun.
