Islam sees animals, as communities like humans, and orders Muslims to be kind and caring towards them. some of the animals' rights that exists in Hadith and Islamic law is included here.

the Hadith below are words of Prophet Muhammad, which shows the importance of good behavior toward all who possess soul.

"Whoever is merciful even to a sparrow, Allah will be merciful to him on the Day of Judgment."

"A good deed done to an animal is like a good deed done to a human being, while an act of cruelty to an animal is as bad as cruelty to a human being."

"Whoever kills a sparrow or anything bigger than that without a just cause, Allah will hold him accountable on the Day of Judgment."

"Whoever is kind to the creatures of God, is kind to himself."

"Do not use the backs of your animals as chairs. Allah has made them subject to you, so that by them you can reach places that you would not otherwise be able to reach except with great fatigue."

It is related that the Messenger of Allah, once saw a donkey which had been branded on its face and he said, "May Allah curse the one who branded it."

The Messenger of Allah (SAW) once passed by a camel that was so emaciated that its back had almost reached its stomach. He said, "Fear Allah in these beasts who cannot speak."

The Companions said,"O Allah"s Messenger! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals?" He replied: "There is a reward for serving any living being."

A group of Companions were once on a journey with the Prophet, and he left them for a while. During his absence, they saw a bird with its two young, and they took the young ones from the nest. The mother bird was circling above in the air, beating its wings in grief, when the Prophet came back. He said, "Who has hurt the feelings of this bird by taking its young? Return them to her."

Muslims are not allowed to harm animals or plants for no reason. The Blessed Prophet forbade people from capturing baby birds, burning ant hills and whipping animals cruelly. All the people he stopped from doing these things were doing them "for fun." Well, as the Prophet pointed out, it wasn't fun for the animals.

If we use animals for our work, we must feed them and not over work them. If we eat animals we are supposed to slaughter the animals according to the rules which prevent all cruelty to animals and if we have them as pets we are to feed them and care for them.

It is related from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, that a prostitute once saw a dog on a very hot day going round and round a well, lolling its tongue because of its thirst. She drew some water for it using her shoe, and for this action all her sins were forgiven.

When you set your dog (for the chase), mention the name of Allah, if he catches the game, and you reach it while it is still alive, cut, its throat quickly (so it won't suffer).

Hunting/Sport

The Prophet of Islam forbade inciting animals to fight one another.
The Prophet of Islam forbade eating animals which have been tied up and shot with arrows.
The Prophet of Islam cursed those who used any living thing as a target.

some other animals' rights in Islam.
if animals have a baby, owners should not take all of the milk of the animal and should leave some for the baby.
it's advised that someone who wants to milk the animal, should trim down his nails as to not injure the animal.
if milking the animal is harmful to it, it should not be milked.
a beekeeper should not take all of the honey for himself and should leave enough (it's better be more than enough) for bees to use for themselves.
if the owner of an animal, doesn't care about taking care of it's needs, the ruler of the land, should force the owner to do it. and if the ruler can't do it himself, this task should be given to other people so that that animal's right is served.
harming all of the animals that are not used for food is banned. unless those animals that are dangerous for humans and should be killed in the areas that humans live or be transported to other areas that there are no humans.
he who offends animals rights, will be faced severe punishment in the day of judgement.
animal's wounds should be treated, even if the tools required are for another human and he's not OK with it.
animals should be freed if they're caught in a place and can't get out, even if this act would destroy that place.
according to Islamic laws, harmful behavior towards animals are sentenced with a fine.
owner should clean the place where animals sleep.
owners are not allowed to cut parts of the animals and the great Prophet has cursed those who do so.
owners are not allowed to make different animals mate to create new species.
those who do bestiality are damned. and our prophet has said that they are damned and God's mercy will not reach them.
owners are not allowed to hit animals on the face.

the Prophet used to tell his people, that if in your travel, the land was barren and dry, pass it quickly, and if it was lush and green, pass it slowly and let the animals rest in it.

LOL. Animal rights? Islam doesn't even offer human rights.
Marrying a 6 year old and waiting until she reaches puberty and maturity before having consensual sex is better than walking up to
a stranger in a bar and proceeding to have relations with no valid proof of the intent of the person. Muhammad wins. ~ Fatihah
