  2. Pingback: Horrible Facts About Animal Abuse – All Animals Matter

  3. I can’t even imagine living with myself to know that I slaughter animals for a living

    • it’s not right and is not ok for other people to abuse animals and why do people even by pets if there
      just going to abuse them

  4. i really hate that people are mistreating and abusing animals. i am going to be vegan. me and my freind are starting an organization to warn the community about animal abuse. its so sad that animals are being killed every day😭😢

  5. Countries should introduce the death penalty for animal abusers because animals are so loving and beautiful nd most of human kind is cruel and stupid

  6. Why? why do we have to be so cruel to animals ? They are the sweetest things people dont give them a chance for that if i could control the world none of this stuff would happen to animals they would be treated with love and respect!! Now for all of you reading this i want u guys to treat animals with love ! They dont deserve this. Pls pass this word from a 12 year old its the least i could do to make a difference in the word for animals. Thank you

  7. Really informative site. It’s so sad what happens to animals every day 😭 This will help so much with my speech on animal welfare. Thank you!

    • Yes it is 😦 I always ask people who want to make a difference to please please consider not eating the animals anymore. A plant based way of life is the best way to help animals, the environment and ourselves. The only people who disagree and are against this are those who still eat animals! Please consider going vegan- as small step with a big impact ❤ ❤

  8. I wish we could all live in peace with no hurting in the world, I would be so happy if one day(even if I’m not alive) all animals could be free of torture. Its so sad to think of all the animals dying each day… I have a cat and I love her so much It would be so sad to lose her… bless everyone who loves animals.

  9. I’m doing animal cruelty as a speech and this helped so much… I hope that more people could see this website… Animal cruelty will hopefully stop someday..

    • Wow, great job for the animals KaliWoik! A lot of people don’t want to know this stuff and I’m glad your brave enough to bring it to the public with a speech. If you want to keep it going for the animals I have two suggestions. Peta2 is a youth animal rights group and they are awesome. Also Care2 is a petition site where you can just do a search for an animal issue then sign all the petitions you can. I do it every weekend 🙂



  10. Thank you for all the information and now i know a lot more of animal abuse and i don’t like it… all this information we help me for my english class

    • I’m sorry there’s so much awful stuff happening to animals- it’s never easy to realize it all. But it’s great your using it to tell others in your class! One day our voices will be loud enough to stop it! If you want to get more involved and help, signing petitions is a really good thing. Even though its online, petitions DO help the animals. Go here and then just sign all the petitions you can. You can search for a certain animal too if you want. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/animal-welfare/

  12. It is cruel and I want to stick up for abused animals like in factory farms where they bleed to death they should and run wild and free. My mom is vegan and that is great. I love animals and they should live.

    • AWESOME NORA… kudos to you and your mom!
      – Mercy For animals is a strong group fighting for farm animals and veganism- you might want to check them out. http://www.mercyforanimals.org/ – Also, PETA2 is very active for all animals and it’s a group for young ARAs (animal rights activist) like you 🙂
      The time is closer than it’s ever been, but we can’t always save farm animals from slaughter yet. A good way to get involved is to find out what animal sanctuaries are in your city, and volunteer there if its OK with your mom.

        • Absolutely- it’s always great to know someone wants to speak up for the animals.
          I’m Lisa, an animal rights activist (ARA) in Florida and can answer questions for you. There are MANY of us out there. I’m also a mom so I understand that sometimes you can’t talk about everything at once if you want young people to be able to listen. Too much, can be really gross! Here’s my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/lgrossman621 . I fight against animal slavery; Lolita the whale in Miami Seaquarium, The whales and dolphins in all the Seaworld locations. Dog racing. Circuses. Etc. Most of us are parents and we will kindly and gently try to answer questions for you 🙂 GOOD LUCK ON THE PROJECT

  13. whats even worse… there is a festival in yuiln, china, where dogs and cats are forced into small cages, beaten and taunted, and sometimes skinned alive…. its called the yulin dog meat festivals. and if you dont believe me look it up, its the most fucked up, depraved thing i have seen… i hope those fuckers burn for what they do…

    • Gabby- I’m not a great writer plus there’s so much research that has to be done to collect facts. Uusally I have a paragraph at the beginning of each article called “SOURCES” and it lists where I got the info, which I put all together in one place so people don’t have to research. BUT, this particular article I wrote 🙂 If you ever question specific facts or want more proof, you can Google stuff like: bull fighting abuse, fur farm cruelty, etc. I strongly warn you though! I try to bring people to a more gentler understanding of what animals suffer because I want you to keep reading without being freaked out. Other sites may not agree and they will post horrific pics in the beginning.

  18. Hey my name is keion
    umm yea I’m sick and tired of seeing animals being hurt an abuse, but now I’m trying to speak up about the problem at my school I’m kind of doing something like a ted talk at my school in highpoint north Carolina. And I’m was planning on using some of your info can I please.

    • Yes, you can take all or part of anything, including pictures. It’s alway awesome to see a student speaking up for the animals! We animal rights people call it being a voice for the voiceless!

  19. This is horrific i cant believe that humans do this daily. i think the people who do this should have this done back to them. i don’t understand why they make these poor animals suffer more than their meant to. i hate to see this.

  20. Hello. Is it okay to share this on facebook? I just wanted to share this information to them to help raise awareness on animal cruelty. Thank you!

    • Yes, you can share anything from this site including pics and posts. I’m glad to hear of another person wanting to be a voice for the voiceless!!

  21. Why is anyone killing animals for their fur?? We already have man-made artificial fur for coats and stuff.

    • Samina- I agree. I know its more effective for we ARAs (animal rights activists) to be patient with people who don’t know better, but I’m not able to do that for people who wear fur. They KNOW its someone else’s skin! It’s disgusting and those animals are killed by (sorry….) anal electrocution because it doesn’t ruin the fur. And (sorry…) they’re often times stunned and not dead when they are skinned. Even if people don’t know how the furfriends are killed, they know they are. Celeberities that I USED to love befor finding out they are fur hags: JLo, Beyonce, Maklemoore, Pharrel, and there are more 😦

  22. hi, i’m doing a project in ERC about animal cruelty and i stumbled upon your site. I think it’s really great about what you’re passionate for. i personally hate the idea of somebody actually abusing animals intentionally. especially if it’s your pet dog who probably doesn’t know anything other than how to love you. I really admire all that you’re doing to help make this world a better place, for both animals and humans.

  23. hi my name is gabby
    i am 16. I am a HUGE animal lover! a couple of months ago, here in san Antonio, I was at my grandma’s and all of a sudden this dog is just crying so much. I went to look and a guy was beating his dog. then the crying stopped. I called the cops and when they went to search the yard there was no body of the dog to be found. animal abuse is really heart breaking specially when you hear the way they cry. if some of these people were to feel the pain these animals grow to they wouldn’t do it anymore. specially when I see videos of a girl throwing new born puppies into a river having no guilt is disgusting. these people need to pay.

    • Hi Gabby. I’m Lisa… this is my site. I’m an ARA in Jacksonville, FL (animal rights activist). I’m sooooo happy to hear of someone your age “waking up.” Your heart is already so beautiful, I know you’ll be a voice for the innocent! I also know you’ll never forget that dog’s voice as long as you live. I’m so sorry this is what it takes to realize it’s absolutely an animal holocaust this century. Humans can be very horrible. That person was a coward and disgusting piece of trash to be hurting an animal who probably loved him. It’s hard to see that and the other stuff you see in videos and feel helpless. Well you don’t have to. We all had an experience where we couldn’t save someone. You didn’t do anything wrong- you actually did all the right things!!! But you can get involved going forward to save animals…for that dog and others like him. For me, I work to stop SLAVERY by helping to shut down Seaworld and Ringling Circus (all circuses). And to end animal experiments in colleges. You’ll find your passion at some point.

      So Peta2 is for young people like you who want to help animals! They will show you how to sign petitions, write letters, send you stuff for protest, etc.

      I know all protest dates and places for Ringling Circus (slave camp). San Antonio has a strong showing each year and they are peaceful like the rest of us. I hope you can see this event on facebook. It’s the Ringling Circus protest in San Antonio July 5th….very important for you and some friends to go!

      4. You can friend me if you want (or not). My page is open and public.

    • that’s horrible my brother took a hammer and beat a snake and i tried to stop him so I put my hand under the hammer and broke it.

      • Wow Magen, you’re very brave and I see an animal rights person in you! with your care for animals you should find Meet-Ups in your area and maybe help with rescuing more. You can also sign petitions for animals at Care2. Thanks for trying to help an animal!

  24. Humanity is supposedly the most advanced race, but that dose not mean we should be doing this. I wish I had someone to blame instead of just humans. A few us are kind and peaceful

    • It may seem fair- but it really isn’t. Animal abuse is bad, and horrible but you also have to understand some of these people have mental illnesses, so they cant stop themselves really. Yes just because of that doesn’t give them the right to but nobody should feel the pain. Either put them in jail for like 16 Months to 18 months. What i’m trying to say is there are easier ways to solve it then just putting abuse on them.

  25. this is terrible, sad and anyone with a human bone in their body should stand up against this kind of acts on animals. I encourage anyone who has read these facts to do something about it. Weather it is donating to a charity fighting for animals freedom, or sending a letter/email to a owner of caged animals that do not have a appropriate habitat, such as a zoo or farm.

  26. My name is Kaitlyn and my friend and I used this information we are going to take a stand and stop animal abuse because any animal has no reason to die just because a human wants it to they should stop killing as many animals as they do we are getting as much facts as we can and if your one of us email us at StopAnimalabuse2014@gmail.com

  27. hi my name is brittany. I used your fact for my multi genre project.your info was very helpful to make my point on why we need harsher punishment for animal abusers. I really hope other people can agree the same thing. I think its really sad that we have poor laws such as a 3 year jail time and a felony charge. it should be alot higher but i can’t make that ddesicaion. I really hope people can particapatie in the waering arange for animal abuse awareness month in april

    • I’m very happy to hear from someone in school who’s awake to the suffering of animals. I agree with you wholeheartedly WE NEED LAWS!! For me, I spend most of my time fight against the circus, and animal testing at the University of Florida. Enacting animal cruelty laws would be help for all issues- kudos to you! Are you active in any peaceful actions where you are? You can contact me on my Facebook page for lots of info and I probably know someone close to your area if you don’t know of any groups . http://www.facebook.com/lgrossman621

      • Hi im in school doin a projec also. i dont have facebook touh so think ou could give some facts on here? thanks!


          I think its great when young people want to know more about animals and how to help them. I’ll tell you right from the start- humans hurt animals A LOT. You might not be able to hear all of it, but everyone can find an issue to be a part of and help animals! For me, I take action against circuses and animal testing. Sadly, there are many issues and you can find one where you belong. A choice to start helping animals makes you an animal rights activist, or ARA! Congratulations! Don’t worry if you’re not vegan (don’t eat or use animal products), you can learn more about that too.

          I’ve been an ARA for only 3.5 years so not very long. I learned a lot of what I know from signing petitions online to help animals. I suggest you start there. Click this link and search for an animal you like. Or, an issue you might have heard about. ** http://www.thepetitionsite.com/ ** Be brave- you have to be to help animals because you’ll see another secret world where humans do bad things to our innocent furry friends. If no one was brave, animals wouldn’t get the help they deserve. Since I found the petition site, I put a day aside every week to sign, sign, sign! PETITIONS DO WORK TO STOP CRUELTY!

          You have heard of PeTA I’m sure. Some people love them, some people hate them, lol! I will help any group who needs me for an animal cruelty issue as long as its valid. I don’t agree with everything about PeTA, but in my city they can call me day or night to go help an animal. And they do! I do PEACEFUL protests when they post on their site about an issue and they will send you stuff to use. Like how the movie The Hobbit killed 27 animals while making it. So we went to our movie theaters and held signs saying don’t go! So PeTA is a good place to start and they have a group for young people PeTA2!! Go to their site be a part of them- they will teach you a lot about how young people can help!

          And PLEASE PLEASE think about going vegan one day soon!

          • your sooooooo helpful. im only 12 so i cant be a vegan cause im still growing and developing. i need my nutrition. well ill look into their site. thanks so much for helping.

            • Good luck with you project 🙂
              I know this is hard to hear- I didn’t know either. There are millions of vegans, not dying from a lack of nutrition and many of them are kids! Pretend we don’t care about animals for a minute. MEAT, EGGS AND MILK ARE POISON. Vegans that start young don’t get cancer, or diabetes, or heart attacks, or high cholesterol or most other diseases. It’s proof that vegan is the most healthy nutrition you can get. We are just trained to believe otherwise so that the meat and milk people can make money. Terrible thought huh? For milk, how did we ever believe that we needed the body fluids of another creature to survive? How can we believe we are meat eaters at all when we are nothing like other meat eaters? Anyway, vegan is the way to save the planet and stay healthy. And most importantly you will never have anything on your plate that screamed in pain and begged for its life. On the side of this page is The Video Of The Week and a pic below for you to check out. (They aren’t gross like some)

              • huh. okay and i dont like meat and the taste. and my dad doesnt cook it right so when i see the blood i almost cry. i CANT eat meat i dont have the heart (and taste bubds :P) to do so. thanks for ALL your help!

    • actually they are all true special the cows. i work with farm animals and know of mas prodcution farms that do the things that are posted on this site.

  29. so people don’t understand that animals do have feelings and they then take advantage of them which is the meanest thing anyone can do 😦 😦 😦

  30. this is bull! has anybody seen the Iowa pig farm video? ‘the pigs are bouncy” a girl says justifying why they throw the PIGLETS they also smash their heads on the ground! to reminde you they’re only

  31. people who do this have no life and they need to be punished in facts what ever happens to the animals should go right back to them but i know that there are some animals that have been saved by that disaster and are now in better care so good bless their souls we just have to look foward to a better future.

  32. Its sad to know that humanity is getting worst day to day but one thing i know god will make them pay.

  33. i cant beleive they would do that!? do they do it for plesore or mony? either way is so crule!

  34. animals should be love… not beaten or use for chemical drugs also the milk they make for humans…should be stop to…

    • Yes your right. The best way for everyone to do something about it is to go vegan. If you scroll down the sidebar on the right, you can click to get a free vegan started kit and see if you might try it.

    • Animals Cruelty isn’t a goo thing right now because animals are be beaten and killed. They should be love and cared for, they shouldn’t be killed. Many people shouldn’t be killed for any reasons. That’s messed up for the animals ,because they need to be loved

  35. This is insane! They should make laws against all of this happening! Animals deserve loving families just as much as humans do.

  36. Why do people treat animal this way?How would humans like it if they where treated the way some animals are treated .

  37. its so sick how people treat God’s creatures!! they hurt them and kill them by hurting them this broke my heart to a million pieces when i read this page and i really want to just hurt the others that would do this for money or something. uhhhh this is sooo sick!!!!
