Animal Abuse
This topic is significant because animals are dying when they shouldn’t be. People take their anger out on their animals all over the world. This results in pain and agony for these poor animals. 70% of animal abusers also have other criminal records and 32% of animal abuse is neglect or abandonment. Animals deserve an equal chance at survival as humans do. How would you feel to be abandoned or neglected? People are doing all they can to help these animals. Organizations like ASPCA and MSPCA collect money to benefit these animals. This topic is very important to me because my dog was abused as a puppy and the shelter rescued her. Who knows what could have happened to her if she wasn’t rescued. I’m so thankful for her as my dog. 
I used Sharpie for the words in the background because sharpies are bold and the words in the background are bold words that have a lot of meaning to them. I used watercolor pencil for the background in the cage to symbolize the darkness of animal abuse. Then I used regular color pencils for dog to really pop out the sadness in it’s eyes.

I like how you made feel how that animal feels inside.It shows how we ignore them and that there human beings as well.The words really show that animals have feelings as much as us humans.

I like how you used all the words in the back to describe how the animals feel. It shows that they shouldn't be abused anymore!

I think the animal behind the fence is very powerful and helps us see how badly some animals are treated. It motivates people to make a difference.

I like how you did the "happy" words in the pink color and the "sad" words in black. Great job on the dog too!
