“Violet” story

Unfortunately, the cases of such cruelty can repeat. Some are much less fortunate. Violet’s owner decided that she should justify her name, and dyed her pet purple. The procedure caused very serious skin burns and hurt her eyes.

It took intensive and long-term treatment with subsequent recovery.

Harm to animals

Chemical substances that people use to dye their hair should under no circumstances be applied to animals. These can cause allergic reaction, toxic poisoning, and even fatal consequences. In addition, it can result in very serious psychological and emotional trauma for the pet. Moreover, fancy haircuts and costumes that are bought for animals should also be exercised with caution.

In many countries, such actions are considered mockery towards animals with subsequent criminal charges. If you have witnessed such cases, report them to animal rescue organizations or volunteers working in animal shelters. They can help. Don’t ignore such terrible crimes!
