If you see a person somewhere with a dog or any kind of animal and you see that person either yelling or hitting there animal then you need to speak up because animals can’t speak for you. Animals speak a different language so they can’t yell or speak up. Animals need your help because if you were an animal I bet you wouldn’t want to get hit for something you didn’t do or didn’t mean to do. At least 10,000 dogs are dying each year from animal abuse and 10 million domestic cats die every year from abuse. I know if I saw somebody walking there dog or any animal and hitting them for something they didn’t do or mean to do then I would speak up, But the question is will you?
