The degree of evolution of a country would be determined first by the human quality of its citizens, rather than its high technology and scientific research.

Leslie: I come from one undeveloped country, when I left it approx.20 years ago it was like this:
Very sad, unfortunately. There are no laws to protect them, only the piety of the people.There are many stray dogs are euthanized as the only means health. There is also no shelter for them.

I became an animal activist many years ago..when I became friends with one...His name was Conrad Dennis, and he was a godsend to hundreds of neglected, abused, and thrown away animals..He spent a good part of his life caring for these animals..And, this was his goal in life..to stop animal abuse on all levels..To stop it..you have to go to the source of where it's being detected..and that's the veterinarians, who see these animals every single day, day in and day out..There should be...

Barb..That is good to hear..But, we need this across the board..If sex offenders have to be registered with the state..so should animal abusers...We have to put the fear of God into these people...If someone purchases an animal, they should have to sign a "a criminal liability form"..which would hold them..criminally liable..if they harm their animal..

god made man over his animals, he even allowed adam to name them, we were told they were given to us and we should respect them and treat them all kindly. it was important to him, so important that he made everyone come to adam to recieve a name. they give us food, love us and clothe us in honor of this we should never allow any cruelty to them.

Anyone who is aware of animal abuse, especially a licensed Veterinarian, should contact the proper authoriities to report the abuse or injuries they witness. Too often our trusting pets are abused by humans who have no values or morals and quite frankly are taking up too much space on this planet. At least this poor, innocent dog is no longer suffering and if her sacrifice promotes more protection for other animals than her death will not have been in vain. May your memory be for a blessing.

As opposed to eating a dog? Let me think about that awhile.

So horrible! I had no idea reporting abuse for veterinarians was optional in some states.

If vets reported all instances of animal abuse they deal with.There's a good chance of a stronger case and a better outcome under the legal system.
