Animal Cruelty Project

Hi I am a senior at Hackettstown High School and im doing my senior health project on animal crualty and it has to be an hour long and I am in need of someone to come in and talk from their expieriences. Preferably someone that runs a rescue and can discuss the cruelty they have witnessed and how they try to prevent further abuse. However anyone with a knowledge of this topic and would like to come and speak to my class, it would be highly apprectiated. Please send me an email, Thank You.

If those other groups dont work out Try reaching out to the New Jersey state spca. They are strictly Law enforcement with the sole purpose to enforce NJ title 4 animal cruelty. ...

See the thread that's running regarding cruelty on a pig farm that was contracted with a major corporation..

Glad to see someone is actually doing something about cruelty to animals.

Being somewhat of a nit-picky writer, I'd change the name of the thread from animal cruelty project to animal cruelty prevention project ... to make sure the purpose is understood.

I've also reacted that way when I've seen titles like Drug Abuse Program, Addiction Program ... it needs to be clarified that it is a prevention and/or rehab program.

Other than some bizarre sea-based slug that can photosynthesize like plants, living things are either plants or animals. So who's going to start the prevention of cruelty to flies? To stinkbugs (they get a bad rap)? To Opposums (seems people love to run them things over)?, Wasps? Roaches? Rats? Snakes? or will all of these beautiful creatures be included in this project along with the pigs who seem to be popular on this website? Just curious....

TOTFC- You are a strange one! Lol! All you have to do is google and you will find a prevention/activist group for every little creature your heart desires. Just because there is a discussion on cruelty to pigs it does not fall into the hypocrisy category that you have been implying.

There are many, many people on this forum that love and appreciate all animals and nature (not just pigs).

Positive,

True that there are a multitude of prevention organizations focused on specific animals. However I till find it amuzing to say the least that people who proclaim to be against the cruelty of animals still eat them.

I'm going to take care of my prized cow so when I hack him up for some steaks, he'll know that I was really kind to him. Really?

Isn't putting any animal to death inherently cruel? Ask the Jews if they would preferred the Nazi's treat them with respect and dignity before escorting them into the gas chambers...would that have mad a difference?

Death = cruelty - no matter how you phrase it. And I bet the student in question above has eaten some form of meat, fish, or game and didn't think twice about how it was cared for before it made it way to her plate.

TOTFC- Speaking of Jews..there is one Jew in particular by the name of Jesus who was not a vegetarian. If you are familiar with the Bible you would know that Jesus ate fish, goat and lamb. Oh and let's not forget about the American Indians who have the greatest respect for animals but they still eat them.

Not to sound disrespectful but your analogies are a little off the wall! Lol

So Positive.......please tell us which animals are we to protect and which are to be saved from your appetite? Who is to judge? And as far as the Native Americans are concerned....they too realized that they are at the top of the food chain and decided which animals were okay to slaughter and which were ok to kill to eat..

Jesus said that all of the living things he created were precious and worthy of life. So if he decided to eat them, does that not make him a hypocrite? Are we basing our menus by what Jesus said? Let me look in my bible for the Saturday menu. Wouldn't Jesus have preferred that we care for all life? Regardless? Oh..wait...Jesus preferred his steak medium rare.... A loving God indeed.
