Some people do not seem to realize that just owning a pet isn’t enough. They need as much love and care as any human being. The fieldworkers of PETA are working 24 hours a day attending to emergencies in north-eastern Carolina and south-eastern Virginia all-round the year. Their actions touched the pitiable lives of innumerable animals that face terrible neglect and abuse but got a new life thanks to PETA.

Dogs should be given the utmost love and compassion as they are totally dependent on their owners. We should always try to adopt these animals from shelters instead of buying them. They have got a new life thanks to PETA. Now, it’s up to us to take up their good work and share this article.
