The Bible on treatment of Animals

Someone ask me this question this morning, “What does the Bible say about pets?”

I like Proverbs 12:10.

(ESV) Whoever is righteous has regard for the life of his beast, but the mercy of the wicked is cruel.
(HCSB) A righteous man cares about his animal’s health, but [even] the merciful acts of the wicked are cruel.
(NLT) The godly are concerned for the welfare of their animals, but even the kindness of the wicked is cruel.
(The Message) Good people are good to their animals; the “good-hearted” bad people kick and abuse them.
