depends on what exactly you are looking for...but generally...

to save a life is like saving a whole community and to take a life is like taking a whole community.

Also there's narrations re Prophet Muhammad's conduct with people and even animals....

a cat slept on his cloak he cut around his cloak rather than disturb the cat!

he also mentioned how a woman was punished becuase she kept a cat locked up (cruelty)

Once, the Prophet spoke of God’s forgiveness due to the humane treatment of animals. He told his companions the story of a man who got thirsty on his way. He found a well, climbed down inside it to the water, and quenched his thirst. When he came out he saw a panting dog licking on mud out of extreme thirst. The man thought to himself, ‘The dog has become as thirsty as I was!’ The man went down the well again and got some water for the dog. God appreciated his good work and forgave him. The companions asked, ‘O Prophet of God, do we get rewarded on humane treatment of animals?’ He said, ‘There is a reward in (doing good to) every living being.’

2. an animal should not be beaten or tortured. Once the Prophet passed by an animal branded on his face. He said, ‘Has it not reached you that I have cursed the one who brands an animal’s face or hits it on its face?’
Muhammad advised his wife to treat an unruly camel that she was riding kindly.

Making animals fight one another for entertainment was also forbidden by the Prophet.

“The Prophet cursed anyone who made a living thing into a target (for practice).”

The Prophet Muhammad also said:

“‘Whoever kills a bird or anything else without its due right, God would ask him about it.’ It was said: ‘O Messenger of God! What is its due right?’ He said: ‘To kill it for food…and do not sever its head, and throw it!’”

during war you are not permitted to uproot or damage trees (environment!)

is that the kind of thing you want?

Hope it is of use and not too late!!!

let me know
