Slam Against Animal Cruelty

It's not something we like to think about, but everyday animals are abused, abandoned and neglected. And it doesn't only affect house pets like cats and dogs: exotic animals are also at risk. Circus animals are the most often mistreated: Elephants who perform in circuses are often kept in chains for as long as 23 hours a day from the time they are babies.

Check out Power Poetry's Stand Up for Animal Rights in 7 Steps. And make your feelings known by slamming against the abuse of these animals.
