animals should not be used as objects because it is simply cruelty to a being which is hurt throughout the process. Like humans, animals feel agony and pain too.

I'd just like to say this is my first debate/post so please correct me if I'm wrong in any way.
===========================================================
Firstly, what do you mean by animals being treated as objects? Do you mean it as when pet's are given clothing? I'm going to accept that as what you mean.
There are many, many ways out there that pets can be tortured, hurt and made to feel agony and pain. I can assure you, putting a decorating pet-safe shirt on a puppy is not hurting a dog, nor is grooming and trimming a dog's fur. Pets are meant to be a companion to us, and dogs are the most loyal species on the planet. Showing them off as an 'object' simply shows that they are important to us, and they are never put in the terms of 'it' or 'that'. They are treated well, and well respected.
I know that animals feel agony and pain too; but how do they feel these emotions when there is no trigger?

Reasons for voting decision: FAIL DEBATE, as both sides dropped out... (checking the voting period debates, from Least To Most votes. By giving this one, it won't be prioritized in the system anymore.)
