April is Prevention of Animal Cruelty Month. Animal cruelty can be divided into two general categories: neglect, when the animal is denied basic necessities of care such as fresh water and food or shelter; and intentional cruelty. Companion animals are covered by state animal cruelty laws which vary from state to state and county to county. Animal welfare organizations across the country work daily to educate people about the proper care of animals and how to prevent animal cruelty.
For more information about preventing animal cruelty, contact the Humane Society of Washington County at 301-733-2060.
