People argue that its wrong to say that dogs are people too. Yes i suppose when people are so literal about it, no a dog should not have all of the same rights as a human citizen. But they are living creatures we actively and recognizably prioritize as family members. Therefore dogs legally should enjoy some basic natural rights like the right to live a healthy life. They are animals and living creatures so they should not be abused or neglected. i'm not saying that the crime should be as intense as homicide, but it is still wrong and very well is still a crime.
