Many people love animals but lack the means to properly care for them.

Unfortunately, this could mean that the animals suffer, and owners could face charges for animal abuse.

The care of animals is taken very seriously under the law. As a result, if a person is suspected to have mistreated an animal, it is likely that he or she will face criminal charges for abuse.
