Humans have a lot of rights. If we gave animals the same rights, we wouldn't be able to keep them on farms and then kill them to eat. That makes no sense. They don't need the right to speak publicly and vote. They're animals, not humans. They shouldn't be abused, but not given the same freedoms a human has.
They should have more rights ! They're just animals and should be loved and cared for ! Using them for testing is just plain wrong ! We have prisons full of people on Death Row , experiment on them ! Poor animals don't know what's happening to them ! I have a rescue Basset Hound that was abused before we got him and it's been a lot of work and love to make him comfortable again !
Some of the rights they should receive is no abuse and companionship. Animals have a lot of things to give to us because we have to show them mercy. Animals sometimes can eat a human for no reason like the crocodile or the snake so they don't show much gratitude as some humans.

No wth are you thinking like a dog having a trial and owning property and taxes? if pigs had rights there would be no bacon and everyone would have to be vegetarian because vegetarians have a less life expectancy then normal people
Not exactly. We shouldn't abuse them, but we shouldn't let them be like humans. Imagine that! They'd get into fights when workers are trying to chop trees or clear land. I'm not saying that chopping trees and clearing land is good, but imagine what the animals'd do!
Domestic Animals have a right to clean water, food that is free of poisons, shelter where needed & love. There is way too many pet owners who don't deserve the love & loyalty of a pet. It's not that animals need more rights. Humans need to step up & if they can't provide a safe loving home for an animal they need to surrender them so their pets can have a better life where they are treasured not neglected.
Only to some degree I think. Because humans are the dominant species it doesn't mean we need to treat the other species like garbage. An animal's mind can only go so far. Wired in instincts kick in. Their brains are not capable of doing curtain things so people need to be their voice. Because animals don't always have a voice.
