In other cases, the adopted animals that are sent to the homes of their new owners in order to give them a company, affection and even provide them with a bit of affection, but in very hard situations they end up belittled from their owners or to vent from theirproblems end up taking away with these helpless victims abandoning them and leaving them alone in the world or even taking away the most precious ones they have, their life
There are many forms of abuse: these are, not feed animals correctly or not give them optimal hygienic-sanitary conditions, to the physical or psychological punishment of the animals.
To begin with, animals are living beings that can be moved by their own means, but they do not have a cognitive development like the human being, they do have a level of intelligence, they react to stimuli, they feel pain, generate stress and canhave a bad behavior produced by leading a life full of abuse and violence.

Many times the causes can be because people want to feel superior to animals and abuse are directly or indirectly and this influences their lives and people’s lives, since if a girl observes that they are mistreating an animal, it producesa psychological trauma.
However, one of the most likely cause of animal abuse is ignorance about the consequences of the abusive behavior of some people towards animals, some have the belief that abuse to animals is justified, or have the perception that theAbuse is personally beneficial, whether they use them for fun or experimentation, among other things.
One of the consequences of animal abuse would be abandonment, the death of animals
Animal cruelty includes a wide range of behaviors that include carelessness and abandonment, use them as fun, intentional acts of cruelty, among others. Whatever the form that adopts, animal cruelty tends to be a starting point for a much wider range of problems, since cruelty towards animals is generally linked to other crimes.
Generally, animal cruelty is a precedent of violence against people, according to a series of studies, people who committed abuse against animals are more likely to commit episodes of violence against people. Domestic violence and cruelty towards animals are also related, since many children who are mistreated are also more prone to abuse animals.
There are people who do not consider the issue of animal abuse important. They do not consider these as sensitive living beings so they do not recognize and respect that these also have rights which are stipulated in different laws. Most people do not know the laws that protect animals. Although these have not been created recently, they are not known by many people due to their ignorance, and they believe that animal abuse is not a crime that can be sanctioned, so they are not worried about practicing it. The lack of support for campaigns by government entities, is a threat that harms the dissemination of laws, so that all citizens are not effectively known. In addition, if there were better support from these entities, financing to carry out campaigns would be reduced and easily accessible, since the State has resources to carry out this type of projects. The lack of sensitivity of some people with the suffering of animals. There are people who torture or mistreat without feeling any penalty. According to studies, these people generally suffer from psychological disorders such as psychopathy.
I think you have to stop this situation, because there is no reason to mistreat animals, they are not to blame for some situations that may occur.
First of all, animals deserve decent care and since people are currently not aware of the responsibility that this implies, it is necessary to raise awareness about the reality that they live every day.
We could also save lives not only with campaigns but also adopting them. There are people who worship animals and pick them up from the streets in worse conditions, but take care of them and keep them healthy and in good condition.
