REAL Accountability For Actions Is Key In The Efforts To End Animal Cruelty
Animal cruelty comes in many forms. It’s much more then then the physical abuse we imagine of people beating animals. Cruelty includes the conditions that many animals have to live in, their lack of food, shelter, and basic care. Animal cruelty is any condition that inflicts physical or mental pain and stress on an animal, and it must end NOW. We are all responsible in the quest to end animal cruelty. The Animal Justice League of America has stepped up their efforts to end animal cruelty and abuse.
Individuals who suspect animal cruelty are urged to contact AJLA and report their observations. The Animal Justice League’s Facebook page and website, AnimalJLA.org accept reports of animal cruelty and abuse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our non-profit organization provides a centralized location to make reports and works to end animal cruelty. We want to make sure that those who harm animals face REAL accountability for their actions.
Between 2004 and 2008 just over 10,000 arrests were made in the United States for animal cruelty according to the Humane Society of the United States. This is astounding when you think that over 2,000 dogs die each year as part of suspected dog fighting rings. There are several reasons why the number of animal cruelty arrests are so low. Animal hoarders and puppy mill operators rarely face charges. Many individuals involved in dog fighting rings are taken on charges that come with much steeper penalties then animal abuse and cruelty. In order to end animal cruelty for good it is important that people report what they see to the Animal Justice League of America. AJLA will do our part to make sure that individuals are held accountable and that stronger laws are in place and enforced to punish those who abuse animals. Together we can end animal cruelty.
