Tip of the Week: One of the most common form of animal cruelty is the abandonment of dogs. As pet owners fail to understand and control the behavior of their dogs when they go around chewing shoes and furniture, barking, urinating in the wrong places, etc, they 'give up hope' and abandon them.

Well, it is our responsibility to spend some quality time daily to train your dog! It will take some patience, and a lot of love. But remember, just like us human, learning as we get older, animals learn as they grow too! And what is better than to spend some quality time to bond with man's best friend?

Violent Activism - Right or Wrong?

Just came across this report, which got me thinking.... in our eagerness and desire to fight for the rights of the abused and tortured animals, how far should we take it? Is violence inevitable? Is it a road that peaceful animal lovers should never consider? Or is it a must if we want to see results fast!? Does the ends justify the means? Are we giving the perpetrators a taste of their own medicine? Or are we just stooping down to their level?

What do you think?
Should violence be an option that we will have to consider sooner or later?
Or should all violence be condemned, as 'an eye for an eye' will make the whole world go blind?

I found a very interesting cartoon which serves well to illustrate what I'm trying to say, but I can't afford to pay for it in order to display it without violating copyright laws. But you can view it legally here.

Hope to hear your views and comments...

It is appalling that people who are suppose to be high on the evolutionary scale are more brutal that animals they are abusing. What joy or entertainment a person who must inflict pain derives from it is unfathomable to me. However, I feel if a person is ever caught and convicted of such a crime that punishment should be harsh and on going. If found doing such acts you should have to pay fines, do jail time, never be allowed to own or work with animals again, and have to pay (for 3yrs or remainder of the abused animals life) a monthly amount for the needs and care of the animals you were so ready to commit a crime against nature upon.

Animal abuse is horrible and I feel sorry for the animals. The people who do the crimes should be punished but humans come first. In the end they are just animals

Humans are animals. People who abuse humans in the name of other animals are not animal lovers, but merely speciesist human haters. As humans are intelligent enough to be self-aware and to empathise with other animals, humans have a responsibility to be humane and respectful towards other animals, whether they are fellow humans, pets, or prey.
