Most pet owners love their companion animals as much as they would love their own children. And there is no wonder. Many times, animals proved to be more intelligent, affectionate and protective than their human counterparts. To hurt these innocent creatures is a true crime, but nevertheless there are many cases of animal cruelty and abandonment. In the U.S. alone, approximately 6.5 million companion animals enter animal shelters every year. Of these, approximately 1.5 million are euthanized (670,000 dogs and 860,000 cats).
The same applies to wild life, with around 10,000 animal species being endangered or critically endangered to be extinct due to human intervention. The top endangered species are the Amur leopard, with only 40 of them left, the Javan rhinoceros (60 left), the panther (only 80 left), the red wolf (100 left), the California condor (130). Most popular cases of animals facing extinction involve the lovely giant pandas, with around 1,000 left, the Grizzly bears (500), the camels (950) or the Bengal tigers (around 2,000 left).
Unfortunately, there’s nothing to be done to reverse these shocking numbers, but there are many solutions to prevent them from getting any worse. Many organizations, charities and foundations are aimed at protecting endangered species, offering veterinary care to both wild and domestic animals, reduce cruelty towards animals and stop organized cruelty such as dog fighting contests.
