Animals are exploited and abused in many ways: in raising them for food and clothing; in entertainments such as circuses; in testing cosmetics and household products; in scientific experiments of many kinds; and when companion animals are abused or neglected. It is time to say NO to animal abuse.
It is time to say stop to the use of the animals for business or selfish gains, stop to the abandonment, stop to the abuse.
From today OIPA Inspectors in Milan offer more guarantee for the protection of the animals in the city. Animals are not toys. They are sentient beings who, like us, require love and protection.
OIPA's purpose consists of the defence of animal rights and to protect animals from any form of mistreatment.
OIPA inspectors investigate and help prevent cruelty to animals. Their work includes: investigate neglect and cruelty complaints, inspect animal establishments such as kennels and pet shops, inspect events like circuses, produce written reports, advise owners on proper care, give talks and presentations to educate the public about animal care.
