Many of the rescue cases that PETA handles involve animals in immediate peril. But even when the risks aren’t so obvious, it’s still important to lend a hand when animals need any kind of help.
Here’s a case in point: When a kind lady saw these unfortunate sheep with heavy, matted coats near a Hayfork, California, hotel, she called PETA for help.
PETA’s caseworker persuaded the animals’ owner to shear them soon afterward. Since the sheep were otherwise in good health and reasonably well cared for, no charges were filed, but—thanks to one concerned person who spoke up—these animals’ lives have been made brighter and more comfortable.
Please always remember: Whenever you see animals in trouble, don’t look away—do something.
