Turn to the Authorities
Students will also be taught to never turn their back on an animal that is being abused. They must speak up and report individuals involved in any illegal act towards animals, regardless if it is their friend, parent, or a stranger. Should it happen in their own home, at the park, or wherever, we will instruct them on who to call and how to get an animal to safety.
Damage Runs Deep
Bullying an innocent animal is no different from bullying a friend or a stranger. We will emphasize the fact that animals have feelings — just like us. When treated with respect and affection, they can feel happiness. When abused or harmed, however, they can feel sadness and pain. This ultimately leads to psychological illness and instability, which causes any animal to bite, scratch, or run away.
T.T.P.A. is working towards the goal of developing a registry to track animal abusers. This database will prevent those who have been convicted of animal abuse from obtaining more animals from pet shops and animal shelters. T.T.P.A. will work with the Nevada State Legislature during the next session, in 2017, to have a bill passed to make this a reality.
