Do you believe that over 400 animals are killed a month, 13 a day,1 every 2 hour all killed in zoos. That why we should ban zoos. The animals in the zoos are becoming more dangerous. Did you now that chimpanzees escaped at the Kansas city zoo. That means people next to or near the zoo could possible be hurt by stressed animals.
Animals suffer greatly when taken out of their natural habitat (Aronson). People have been restricting animal independence for years. Animals have been put in zoos and other places solely for the benefit of humans (Issitt). “We all go to great lengths to ensure our own survival and the survival of our families and communities.” (Aronson). Therefore why should the freedom of animals be taken away for the benefit of humans.
I have 2 kittens that we saved on the highway, a momma kitty who had her 2 babies under our house, 1 cat that was roaming our neighborhood and 1 cat from a drive through. I still have them now and will never leave them behind, we also made sure to have them all spayed or neutered along with some others that we were able to capture and release. This is not enough, we need more people to do this! I would like to find more ways to get more people involved in saving these beautiful animals from horrible living environments and needless euthanization. Most of these shelters do not have enough space or resources to care for the animal, 15% of dogs and 2% of cats that enter animal shelters go back to their owners.
People abandon their animals all the time either because they cannot care for them anymore or they just do not want them. Non-kill animal shelters are a safe haven for animals because they get the food and attention they need which is why there should be more if them and more people to help rescue these suffering animals. They should slow the breeding of so many animals and start taking care of the ones that are already here. Kill shelters for animals are not the same as non-kill shelters they are not safe places for animals because they are places that also abuse animals and every year 1.2 million animals are killed in animal shelters each year. In conclusion, animals should not be sent to kill shelters when you can take them to non-kill shelters where they have a second chance at
700,000 animals are captured and put into zoos each year. Just think about the number of lives we are ruining day by day. Firstly animals should be able to roam around freely, not be behind bars when their lives have just begun. Humans may see them as a treat, but they deserve the equality humans are been given. Imagine waking up to nothing but lifeless animals and cages till the eye can see.
Stray animals A tendency is seen in the U.S that the number of dogs in the animal shelter are deceased however the number of cats are increasing. The reason is because the shelter can not provide sufficient space for the population of the animals in the shelter. The stray animals that enter the shelter may have infectious diseases that can also be the reason why they are killed. Most stray animals may enter the shelter with visible history of violence and abuse. The reason of why they are strayed are caused generally by irresponsible pet ownership, neglect and abuse, and owning and buying pets and breeding them instead of adopting the animals from shelters which mostly are dogs and cats.
However, the reintroduction of animals back into the wild will be difficult because many animals in captivity have lost their ability to survive on their own. These animals can be placed in sanctuaries where people will provide care for them as they live out the rest of their lives. As far as circuses, providing entertainment without the use of animals in the acts is still possible and just as effective. Putting animal and human lives at risk for the sake of humanities entertainment is unnecessary and
According to Humane for Pets, every year “five in ten dogs are euthanized simply because the shelter has no one to adopt them.” With millions of animals entering the shelter each year and only a fraction of them actually getting adopted its essential that we start focusing on shelter animals and adopt don’t shop. This is just a small fragment of a bigger picture depicting the significance of adoption. When adopting a dog people need to be aware and educated about the choices that they make, ensuring that they are adopting for the right reasons. Along with that people need to think about breeders and the negative impact that surround buying from them. It’s more than just adopting a dog and being done with it.
Each year, dogs have to end their lives by making mercy killing. According to 2008, US Animal Crime Prevention Association (ASPCA) said that “there are pets, including dogs, cats, and other animals in the National Animal Shelter Nationwide has made more than 3.7 million” (2013). The mercy killing the animals is the way that we decided to choose the path of life for pets to stay or go. We do not know the real need of them because these animals have no right even to speak. We have a duty to just help them as fully as possible so that the pets that we love is the least
But as i got closer to it, i gasped and saw it was a kitten in the very center of the road and she was moving! My oldest son, who was seven at the time, seen it too and yelled "MOMMY! There is a kitty in the road! We have to save it, before it gets hit!" I agreed with him, and we turned around as soon as we could.
