Teenagers can do a lot to help stop animal cruelty. More and more teens are becoming morally conscious at such a young age that they are making a difference in our society already. According to Gandhi, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” If a moral teen wants to sincerely help to make this globe a better place, then a good way to start is to help the animals on this planet.
The Humane Society of the Untied States is an organization that can give teenagers advice on helping to stop animal cruelty. Here one can learn how to take care of dogs and cats properly if they have them, how to get involved in the community for the promotion of animal cruelty prevention, and they can learn how to stop animal abuse if they witness it first hand. Teenagers really do want to do the right thing and usually only need the guidance of caring adults to lead them in the right direction.
Another great thing that teenagers can do to help in the prevention of cruelty to animals is to start a club at their school to help fight animal abuse. By just approaching the school administration about forming this type of club, they could start a very positive trend in their district.
By working together in a club for such a worthwhile cause, these young group members would be helping not only the animals but also to increase community awareness of the problem. By organizing and executing fundraisers, the teens could give the money raised to the local animal shelters, which usually have to rely on meager donations.
With people like Hayden Panettiere and Britney Spears doing their part to stop animal cruelty, many more teens may become more motivated to help in the fight against animal abuse. So much information is available for teenagers, with regard to learning how to stop animal abuse and in helping to get their community more involved in the effort. All one has to do is let their fingers do the clicking when it comes to learning how one can get involved with this great morale effort.
