Dear next President,
First of all, congrats on becoming the president of the US.
My name is Serena and I strongly believe that animals should be treated more like
humans. Animals have a heart and they have feelings just as much as
we do. Animals on a daily basis are tortured, neglected, and starved.
Animal pounds just kill off animals if they aren't adopted in a certain
amount of time and it isn't right. Animals deserve to live a long, happy
life and to be loved. You can make a change in the world and do
something to stop animal cruelty.
Most dog owners chain up their dogs and leave them out to just starve
away. People want pit bulls to be security dogs so they use shock
collars and abuse them to train them. Pit bulls aren't naturally
aggressive yet they get taught to attack and that's why most people
treat them like they are bad. Approximately 7.6 million animals enter
animal shelters a year in the U.S. and unfortunately the rest are just left
as strays. According to ASPCA the exact amount of stray animals can't
be determined but the population of stray cats alone is estimated to be
up to 70 million. (Http://www.aspca.org/animal-homelessness/shelter-
intake-and-surrender/pet-statistics). In the United States one billion
bunnies are killed every year for their fur. They are skinned alive and
hung to death. People have no humanity and wear animal fur for "style"
like nothing but if someone was to wear human skin the whole world
would freak out and act so shocked. It's unbelievable how heartless
human beings could be to murder an innocent animal just to fit the
You as our future president can make a change in this world for the
animal industry. There could be laws passed to ban putting down
animals for no reason and more strict policy's for pet owners. I also
think there shouldn't be merchandise used against animals and
together we could end animal cruelty for good. You could also offer a
place where all strays could go without being locked in cages and
make more efforts into helping animals get adopted. I hope you can
take this into consideration.
