Neglect, on the other hand, is lack in providing sufficient quantity of food, water, and veterinary treatment to animals besides pathetic shelter conditions causing discomfort to the animals (http://canadianveterinarians.net/animal-abuse.aspx).
Abused and neglected animals are a social problem dealt better by nonprofit organizations the world over. They are provided shelter by nonprofit organizations (http://www.inhumane.org/). Such agencies come forward for the rescue of abused and neglected animals in a big way in North America. Animal sanctuaries have emerged like the Peace River Refuse and Ranch, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit sanctuary holding accreditation and membership of World Society for Protection of Animals (WSPA). The sanctuary provides shelter to wild and unwanted exotic animals who are abused, neglected, and seized to be eliminated like tigers, cougars, leopards, wolves, bears, primates, small wild cats, bats and such. Other than shelter, nonprofit agencies cater to the rescued animals’ medical, nutritional, and emotional wellbeing. Nonprofit organizations have also come forward in promoting legislation against keeping wild animals as pets in homes. They discourage exotic pet trade for the welfare of the animals (http://peaceriverrefuge.org/).
A number of other facilities also exist like zoos, breeders, attractions, parks, pet owners, and placement or adoption centers. Visitors come to such facilities for educational and knowledge-seeking purpose. Although these facilities are not totally not-for-profit but they play a crucial role in creating social consciousness among visitors on the poor condition of wild animals. The income the sanctuaries get from visitors is spent on the upkeep of the facilities and animal (http://peaceriverrefuge.org/).
