People engage in animal abuse in every city around the world, for many different reasons – NONE of them acceptable. Animal abusers come in all walks of life, from all professions, and all classes. Many times animal abuse is not as easily evident as it is with pet owners who viciously beat their pets. The most common pets in an American household are cats and dogs, and the statistics are nothing short of alarming.
An abused animal can turn on a human in an instant, so children and innocent bystanders can be attacked by an animal if it feels threatened. When abused, animals are not the only ones in danger.
