Grants for Animal Rescue Groups

All animals are given a chance to live like human. Every animal also have rights of their own, they are entitled to have a better caring homes, foods and medical assistance. Today, there are overpopulated animals and most of them are strays and some of these animals are being treated violently. Some people believe that they are lower forms of being and should not be given respect. Others may think that they are toys that do not experience pain, hunger and fatigue. But if you are aware of their importance you would know that they play vital role in the ecosystem and they deserve some respect.

While animals and humans have biological differences, they share some similarities like they too experience hunger, pain and thirst. In 2007 the Animal Welfare Act came into force with DEFRA modernizing the requirements for caring for animals as previously contained in The Protection of Animals Act 1911. And if you know someone who is cruel to animals you can contact your local authorities. In fact, there are many institutions that give grants for animal rescue groups who are responsible for protecting the animals from human cruelty.
