If you notice someone being cruel to an animal, then you need to report it. If you see an animal sitting in a parking lot in a car, then you need to report it. I live in Florida where it gets terribly hot. If someone leaves their pet in the car for too long, it can cause harm to their health and could even result in death.

Puppy Mills are horrible. Refuse to buy any pets from stores that are selling animals. You may think that buying a pet from the puppy mill is saving them, but you are only encouraging the mills to continue doing business. You should onlyadopt your pets from animal shelters and reputable breeders. Spread this word around.

Hello - How wonderful that you are concerned with the wellbeing of animals... No doubt they all suffer just as we can and all wish to live as much as we do too. Wondering though... About "cruelty" - Isn't it "cruel" to kill when we don't have to? And really, in our civilized world no one needs to kill an animal to thrive... So unless someone is living on a (compassionate) plant based diet - Wouldn't it be cruel to do otherwise? I mean "meat" isn't "necessary" - So if we pay people to breed and kill innocent animals - aren't they victims to our thoughtless habits? Just some food for thought... Perhaps you'd also be interested in watching the free online movie called Earthlings.
