ABSTRACT
This article relates the author's insights on animal abuse. According to 15-year-old Fawn, pets can be happy or sad, as well as feel pain and suffering. She points out that millions of animals are abused and exploited every year without any protection from the animal cruelty laws that protect pets. She notes that this abuse occurs behind closed doors in order to produce several of the things that most people buy such as food, clothes, make-up and shampoos. She suggests checking whether a product is cruelty-free via the web site unleased.org.au.
