Well I'm certainly glad that some countries protect animals... It's such a shame that so many animals are treated like objects, and tossed aside whenever they become "useless". It's disgusting. I will definitely have to go there someday to see how animal laws SHOULD be. The US is terrible in that department.
On another note, my betta rescue was successful! He is almost totally better, just keeping a close eye on him for the next week. Then he's going to his new home! I found a friend of mine who loves animals as much as me, so I know he will be very well taken care of. :)
Kindness and respect should be shown to all animals, no matter if they are furry, scaly, big, or small. Be a hero to the animals and GO VEGAN!
