Pet Violence

Cruelty to animals, also called animal abuse, animal neglect or simply animal cruelty, is the infliction by omission or by commission by humans of suffering or harm upon any non-human animal, regardless of whether the act is against the law. Pet Violence also includes overt and intentional acts of violence towards animals and failure to provide for the welfare of an animal under one's control. Causing any form of distress towards animals is also considered animal abuse and is a liable offence.

Abandonment and Neglect

Pets are abandoned for a variety of reasons. Often, when abandoned, pets are forced to fend for themselves, and become feral. In particular, cats and dogs go to colonies. Feral cats are said to outnumber feral dogs. Feral cats are difficult to deal with, as often they become impossible to socialize enough to be re-introduced to a new human owner. In general, only some newly abandoned cats and very young feral kittens can be tamed. Neglect simply means not providing necessary food, water, and shelter. Several states go further by requiring that owners also give their animals needed veterinary care, exercise, sanitary conditions, and protection from the weather. But some laws add conditions that could make it hard to convict someone of animal neglect.When people collect far more pets than they can care for properly, the animals usually end up suffering from malnutrition, crowded and unsanitary conditions, and untreated health problems.
