Animal rights or animal liberation is the belief that animals, like humans, have basic rights, and they must be protected. Animals, both domesticated and wild, are victims of cruelty and crimes at the hands of humans—from testing products in labs to entertainment. As intelligent living beings, we must protect and preserve the rights of the animals.
Humans can take many proactive actions to prevent cruelty towards animals:
- Send out action alerts or start a petition to support the cause
- Be against animal testing and hold protests or show support against animal testing
- Start campaigns to take action against animal cruelty and support PETA
- Encourage friends and people we know to fight against animal cruelty
- Become a vegetarian
