      Animal abuse is wrong on so many levels. But in order to change the laws we have to make people and lawmakers understand that animals are not property, its not like your car, animals rely on us for 100% of their care and for love. We teach them how to relate to others and then they are punished for what they learn from us. No one human or animal deserves to be abused this way and this should be a felony same as if we abuse another human. Please help to make animal abuse a felony in every state!
