First, many wild animals that are kept in homes do not have the right care provided. Some animals are not fed right, or food becomes too expensive for owners to buy (Wild Pets). Many animals also don’t have the chance to get enough exercise. Additionally, the animals don’t have a humane living area in most cases. Most animals are locked up in small cages all day being kept like a house pet (Keeping Wild Caught Animals - Unsafe, Illegal, Inhumane).
Many animals across the country are waiting in a cold shelter for someone to adopt them only for them to not get the love they deserve. When they become euthanized.There are some non-euthanizing animal shelters but not all shelters are. This is a fight that needs to be fought. We are the voices for the animals who don’t have a voice. One reason why the animals are being euthanized is because the shelters are too over populated.
As people fail to consider the needs of an animal when they’re purchasing one, the risk of abandoning them increases. Animal homelessness is a continuing problem in the United States and needs to be solved. Though animals are suffering on the streets and in animal shelters, people continue to buy their pets from breeders and puppy mills. “Nationally, only 20% of the dogs and cats in homes are adopted from animal shelters” (One At A Time). As more U.S. citizens choose breeder-bred animals, the demand for breeders and puppy mills increase.
The people who work in zoos are the ones who feed them on a certain schedule so the animals will get used to relying on someone else to get them food. Their interactions with other animals is taken away which isolates them and only lets them communicate with only their species. Some animals may be endangered in their habitats or have been hurt so they need to be taken in to recover, but spending too much time in the man-made habitats where everything is provided will make them forget some instincts they needed to survive in the wild. Relying on people in zoos to give them food and always getting checked up for their health will be dangerous if they ever get released and will be forced to hunt for prey and use their instincts and survival skills that were
These animals can’t comprehend what is happening to them, therefore in most cases, they are unable to fight back. Due to the authorities, some are rescued, but some however aren’t so lucky. According to the Humane Society, approximately 1 million pets are abused or killed per year. According to the ASPCA, 7.6 million animals enter animal shelters every year. The amount of animals being abused is growing tremendously every upcoming year.
Others stay nestled in the corner, fearful. Row after row of animals sit in cages. The line may seem endless. Why do so many animals end up in shelters, and how is it affecting the lives of these animals that prevents most of them from being adopted? Overcrowding remains the number one issue in animal shelters worldwide.
The dogs are forced to play in a small yard with little to no privacy. Others who object to the dog park idea states, it would be a burden for taxpayers and a lawsuit waiting to happen. The people who are pro dog park belive that it is important to a dogs mental health and physical health to have the proper amount of excercise. they also say in one study in the year 2013 it was reported that 65% of owners
Meaning if animals aren’t adopted, they are euthanized. Logically, we all know that’s not fair; but its an everyday thing. If we could decrease the number of animals in shelters, or strays, that wouldn’t be as big of an issue. Walking down the street you see tons of homeless people holding up signs asking for work, money, food or prayers. When you see this some people feel pain and others tend to look right through it.
Furthermore, visitors' reckless behavior of throwing improper food or other substances can be a safety hazard for zoo animals. On the other hand, many zoo-owners are mean with money spent on the scientific design of zoos' construction, resulting in a lack of adequate protection for visitors. Even if the design of the zoos' construction has greatly improved, zoos are still dangerous for human beings for some unpredictable factors. Presumably, you still remember the case that a male visitor died from being attacked by a tiger in Ning Bo on 29 January 2017 due to his intention of sneaking across the area which the tiger inhabited in order to steal a ride. Chances are that danger lies in recklessness and unpredictability.
Attention Getter: Imagine living on the streets, constantly looking for your next meal and never knowing the feeling of companionship. This is the life of stray animals. Credibility Statement: No one really knows how many stray animals roam the streets, but it is predicted that there are more than 70 million stray cats in the United States alone. Central Idea (Proposition): By adopting pets from the American Humane Society or other rescue shelters, we can reduce the amount of stray animals on the streets. It is estimated that there are over 11 million Americans that support the Humane Society.
