Neglect and violence TO animals

April is a time when non-profit organisations raise awareness of the prevention of cruelty towards humans. For example “National Child Abuse Prevention Month”, “Sexual Assault Awareness Month”, “National Youth Violence Prevention Week”.
At the same time, it is also important to raise awareness of the prevention of cruelty towards animals, which is why FOUR PAWS is focusing on this topic during April.
