A lot of animals are mistreated and/or abandoned. From my point of view, people who do that deserve a worse punishment like a penal servitude for life or a death sentence.
Animals have feelings too, and they feel and suffer like us, but people without heart aren't aware of this topic. Heartless people enjoy HURTING them, and it's something that I hate. There are people who don't want more animals in their homes, and their solution is to abandon or kill the puppies of their pregnant pets. I always say that if you don't want more animals, you must be responsible and you must castrate your pet before it GETS pregnant.
Together we can finish with that, and keep in mind that an animal is a life too, and they have the right to be respected. Animals and humans have the laws in common, and if you mistreat them, you commit a crime.
