There may not be a ‘quick fix’ for animal abuse, but educating our children how to better care for our animals is a start. I am therefore asking all of my facebook friends, to PLEASE sign this petition. We CAN force change and we CAN make a difference. It is easy to tut tut at the horrific images of animal abuse, or feel sickened by the puppy who has just been put to sleep having been thrown from a motorway bridge., so I am asking people to put their pen where their mouth is and to force our government to make animal welfare education part of the school curricula. Together, we can and will make a difference.
