All these rights are accepted across the globe, and they run from the physical to the mental wellness of the animals. All animals deserve to be treated accordingly as they are also part of the ecosystem, and they play a major role in it.

Animals need to be provided with proper housing that is managed effectively as they are essential elements to their well-being. An appropriate housing allows the animals to reproduce, grow, have od health, mature, interact with other animals a, and when planning for the social and physical environment for the animals, you need to consider the following; availability of the enrichments, presence of disease-causing microorganisms, the design of housing, animal species, character, sex, health, age and the type of breed. Other factors also include the ability to form social groups through contact, smell and sight. The environment provided to the animals should be appropriate for their history and type of species.

Providing animals with a proper diet is one of the things that you should not ignore. Animals survive by living on and feeding on other living organisms. All animals can adapt easily to their environments and make the best out of them. Some animals feed on water, others on plants and others on other animals. Herbivorous animals depend on green vegetables as their main source of food. They include cows, goats, sheep etc. Omnivorous feed on both plants and other animals. On the other hand, carnivorous only depend on meat and live on other animals to consume enough nutrients and energy. Therefore, the type of diet given to the animals depends on the type of class they belong to. But in most cases, people love to keep dogs, cats, cows, goats, sheep, horses, pigs, and donkeys as their pets.
