There is nothing in this world to prove that man is the most superior being of the world. And it ought to receive more respect than animals. The other animals are also creations of god and they should be treated with dignity. Animals also deserve some kind of rights.
Everyone should have the decency to treat animals with kindness and respect and not make them suffer in any way. They should not be caged. Animals deserve to live according to their own natures, without harm, abuse or exploitation. It has been shown that animals are capable of feeling pain, hunger, thirst, loneliness and kinship. It is very unfortunate that some people wear fur. Fur belongs to its original owner. Some fur comes from animals caught in horrific traps called leg holds. Animals are struck in these traps for hours and even for days before the trapper comes to pick them up. Some animals try to chew and bite their own limbs off just to get out of it.
There is subject of animal testing. Scientific researchers use animal experimentation for bio-medical and veterinary research to improve human health and the welfare of other animals. Some groups are opposed to all forms of animal experimentation, arguing that medical advances do not justify it. Protests from animal right activists against the use of toxicity testing on animals by industrial organization – to investigate the safety of products on the human biological system have ranged from organized demonstrations to arson attacks on shops especially those selling cosmetics. Animals have been and continue to be used in sports involving their injury and death. Laws on badger baiting, dog fighting, deer and stag hunting vary from country to country. Fox-hunting is still conducted in UK, but active opposition from animal rights and animal welfare campaigners during the fox-hunting season has resulted in the sabotage of meetings.
Concern has been expressed for the animals kept in the zoos and those sharing feats in circus owing to the unsuitable housing, lack of space and unnatural habitat and climate in which these animals are often kept. While vegetarianism is often undertaken for health reasons, many vegetarians are opposed to eating fish, flesh, or fowl and vegetarians abstain from eating or using animal products as they disagree with the farming and slaughtering of animals.
If you are planning to get a dog, you should not buy from a pet store. Go to a licensed breeder. The dogs in pet stores are puppy mill dogs. Puppy mills were developed due to more and more people wanting dogs and they are all mass-puppy-producing- factories. The dogs that live there are under extremely horrible conditions and puppy mill dogs are often be emotionally unstable and dangerous due to bad breeding that you most likely will not run into if you contact a licensed breeder about getting a dog. Think about it, would you like to be treated like some of those animals that undergo these conditions and abuse?
Humans should show mercy towards animals. It is for humans to give animals their rights because without humans, animals cannot fight for their rights. It is our duty to protect all creations of god, because they all are very important for our survival.
