There is an organization called Needy Paws that takes in stray animals and rescues them. This is a three step process; The first step is a detailed application. Step two is background check and interviews. The last step is a home visit with the animal. The home visit ensures that the home is a good fitting for the pet and that he/she is in a safe environment. For being placed in a good home Needy Paws pays for all the medical bills. In home visits are done by the foster care-takers of the pet. The program that fosters is all volunteers who are in charge for the safety of the animal.

There are several things that I could do to help make people aware of animal cruelty. I could write a book to educate people on animal cruelty. Hold classes at elementary, middle school, high school and colleges on animal cruelty. Support people by sharing the animals with them at school during class to bring awareness of animal cruelty. Post on social media and make posters to hang up around schools against animal cruelty. I could write a newspaper articles, or post online. There are an unlimited amount of options.
The one thing that I think would help the most would be; getting a community to come together and donate money to animal shelters, they could take these animals, get them the medication or help they need, give them food/water, that way when they are healthy again we can find them a permanent home or shelter. As a community I think we should everything we can to keep these animals safe, animals are not just pets, they are family and friends. Now, imagine youre on a walk and you look around and see all these dogs in the backyards of your neighbors houses, they look so happy, they are running and playing. Isnt that the kind of community you want to live in? I know thatr's one I would like to live in.
