Live and let live! Stop animal cruelty!

Animal cruelty generally falls into two categories: neglect, or intentional cruelty. Neglect is the failure to provide adequate water, food, shelter, or necessary care. Examples of neglect include: starvation; dehydration; inadequate shelter; parasite infestations; failure to seek veterinary care when an animal is in need of medical attention; allowing a collar to grow into an animal's skin; confinement without adequate light, ventilation, space or in unsanitary conditions; and failure to trim hoofs or nails resulting in excessive growth (e.g. hoofs curling upwards). In some cases neglect is a result of the owner's ignorance, and can be rectified by educating the owner.

Equally disturbing as neglect is the brutality of intentional cruelty, involving deliberate physical harm or injury inflicted on an animal. Regretfully, cases of animals being beaten, burned, poisoned or stabbed to death are not uncommon.

In some cases neglect or cruelty is the result of people using animals as tools for commercial profit, such as in the cases of excessive puppy breeding, use of animals in entertainment, animal testing and illegal slaughtering.

Guaranteed to steal your heart is little Master Timmy. Those eyes. That tilt. Timmy will tilt his head at the click of a camera, at your humming your favourite tune and just about anything. If you ignore him, he'll offer you his paw. Tim Tim is super-cute. And super-smart for his age. He's around three months old. He loves to give you kisses. Tugs at ladies' skirts ( he immediately gets picked up and cuddled!) and oh, if you want that tousled-hair, just-outta-bed look, just show Timmy your head :-). Timmy is a foodie and loves hanging out with older dogs. He's in Chennai. Call 9500058836 to adopt!

Kindness to the whole animal creation is not only a virtue that should be developed but is the ABSOLUTE DUTY OF MANKIND. Children should be taught that nature in all forms is God’s Great Book of Life and respect and be compassionate to all animals.
