How Everyday Actions Can Combat Cruelty to Animals
As most animal lovers will tell you, there are lots of little ways to return the love of our furry friends. With some many animals at the risk of cruelty, it’s so important to start doing your bit today! While many of us don’t have the time to be an animal activist, it doesn’t mean we don’t care. The good news is that there are ways you can combat cruelty to animals in everyday life. Here are our favourites!
The need to recycle and save our planet has never been higher. Even the recent deepest dive to the Earth’s surface was reported to find disposed plastic. These materials that fail to erode are not just a problem for us and the atmosphere, they are also a big problem for wildlife. Lots of animals choose to eat our disposed waste because they believe it to be food. The result is a lot of wildlife dies. This can easily be prevented by cleaning up after ourselves and not littering. If you're at the beach soon then try to look for some plastic to take to a bin.
Although not an everyday occurrence, you may see cruelty to animals first hand such as a family pet being mistreated, or you may experience tell-tale neglect signs like dogs continually barking or being left outside overnight. If cruelty to animals is happening in front of you, and it is safe to do so, you should step in and stand up for what is right.
If you do not feel confident enough to step in or you only have suspicions that something is wrong, you could always contact the police or the RSPCA. Grab a pen and notepad and take down the RSPCA 24-hour anonymous number to report animal cruelty and neglect.
Teach Our Children
To truly eradicate the presence of animal cruelty we have to teach our children how to treat animals. If we can teach the younger generations about the beauty, importance and unconditional love that animals offer, we are less likely to grow up with animal cruelty in society. This should not be too difficult as most children are interested in animals and family pets.
Ethical Food Choices
There has been a sharp rise in the number of vegetarians and vegans in the UK. Some people choose these diets because they are concerned about animal welfare during the food-making process. This doesn’t mean you have to adopt these diets too. You could always try to reduce your meat consumption or make ethical choices in the supermarket by choosing organic food.
Rhino Stationery and Combating Animal Cruelty
Of course, there are many more ways of combating animal cruelty to consider, such as only using gardening products that do not pose a threat to wildlife and choosing hygiene products that have not been tested on animals.
Here at Rhino Stationery, we’re a big believer in helping to end animal cruelty, starting with Rhinos. That’s why with any products that you purchase from us, we donate some of the proceeds to the Save the Rhino Charity!
