ANIMAL CRUELTY

We need to protect the animals in the state. Currently, there is a law for Animal Cruelty here in Utah. I am not saying that there needs to be a new law. What I am proposing is that we keep our animals safe, as so many animals are repeatedly brutally tortured or killed every single day. Even though there is a law for it, you can easily get away with animal cruelty. Did you know that 65% of dog owners personally abuse their dogs? Did you know that 97% of farm animals are brutally tortured and killed? Do you know what happens to animals at shelters? We need to better care for animals, as animals help us in so many ways; they are there for us through tough times. They care for us, and we should care for them.


Many animals have done nothing wrong and should be treated as if they are a human not property. They are loving and caring and can get just as emotional as a human does. We are here to show them how much they are loved and needed.

My proposal

Animal Cruelty Should Not Be Forgiven

Owners Who Kill Their Animals

Eliminate Shelters From Putting Animals Down

Report Animal Cruelty, Abused or Neglected

Animal Cruelty Should Not Be Forgiven

Animals should be loved, honored, and shown how much we care. Studies show that animals can reduce anxiety, reduce stress, and boost your mood. Without animals, what kind of a place would we live in; we need better care for our animals as they are the soul and are harmless pets. We should be giving love, not torture. Animal cruelty is a crime, and we should not forgive those who abuse or brutally torture animals.

Owners Who Kill Their Animals

Owners who brutally torture and kill their animals should not be owners in the first place. We deserve to show pets respect and loyalty. We do not need to abuse animals under my proposal. I propose that those who kill their pets cannot care for animals and be held accountable. In my view, the whole point of owning a pet is to give them love and a home. By proposing the end of animal cruelty is to show you just how much they matter, hopefully. Just as much as any of us matters. We need to have better care for our pets.

Eliminate Shelters From Putting Animals Down

Once an animal is no longer cared for or abused and found, animal control will put the animal into an Animal Shelter. Once they are at the shelter for an extended period and cannot get adopted, animal euthanasia happens; this should be a crime and considered animal cruelty. Instead, they should send them to an Animal Care Facility, where they can be loved and cared for until a home can be found. This way, animal shelters can have room for other pets and not get overpacked by animals and decide to put them down; this is Animal Cruelty. If not, I will make sure that this gets put into law.

Report Animal Cruelty, Abused or Neglected

As they say, if you see something, say something. Seeing animal cruelty, abuse, or neglect and not reporting it should also be a crime. Seeing something and not reporting it is just as bad as if you were abusing the animal yourself. We need to report abuse. In the animals' eyes, neglecting them shows no one cared for them, and they die from no food or love or care. We should also teach our children at a young age to care for animals so that they can grow to love their pets and be against animal cruelty just as much as I and so many others are.
