In this speech I?ve told you about how to stop these awful puppy mills from continuing to scam you. First by telling you what goes on in one, second by informing you in how they make profit from you even when you don?t know that it?s happening, and last by letting you know how to stop or avoid getting a mistreated animal as a member of your family from these heartless places.
More than 7.6 million animals are abused, killed, and abandoned every year in the United States alone. This is a real problem that needs attention brought to it in order to solve it. Animal cruelty is when a person purposely chooses to hurt an animal or does not take care of the animal. It is illegal to be cruel and abusive to an animal but people still decide to mistreat animals. There are many reasons why a person is cruel to an animal, those include: the person was mistreated as a child and that is the only way they know how to treat living things, they simply want to mistreat the animal, they do not know that they are hurting the animal and do not see it as a problem (“PAWS - People Helping Animals.” The Animal Abuse). Animal cruelty is not just something that happens in homes but also occurs in many other places including food industries, makeup industries, labs, and the entertainment industry. The abuse happens everywhere. The organization named People Helping Animals is an organization that helps animals that are being abused, but it also brings attention to the fact that people that abuse animals are likely to abuse humans and are in need of mental treatment. Animal cruelty is an issue that affects animals that are constantly mistreated, but there are organizations, such as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), that help by saving animals from abusive homes and get them the help
Assistance dogs today do not receive as much credit as they deserve. One may be asking what is an assistance dog? According to the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), an assistance dog is, “Any guide dog, signal dog, or other animals individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability” (“Commonly Asked Questions About Service Animals in Places of Business”). Only .9 % of disabled people have a service dog, and in the U.S. 43 million people were recorded to have disabilities back in 1990 (Service Dog Central). There needs to be a bigger emphasis on the training programs available for assistance dogs, and how they can benefit our community. Currently, the media tends to focus on raising funds for troubled animals. While this is an important need, there is a greater need for increased funding for service animals and awareness of the many ways they contribute to society.
Fostering animals, why should anyone do it? The short answer is that it will save lives. To expand, animal shelters all around the United States have suffered from overcrowding at one point or another in their business. When that occurs, they have two options: either turn away the new animals being dropped off at their doorstep or euthanize those who have been in the system for “too long”. When you choose to foster, you’re assisting in both traumatic issues. Firstly, any new animals dropped off in the shelter system can skip the entire stressful process of shelter life and go right to you. Secondly, taking in that animal that needs an extra boost to understand what it is like to be in a loving home environment, something that they may not have been able to receive in the shelter, may turn an “unadoptable” pet around. Animals who have been shown this kind of love and appreciation after their hardships, I believe can make the best pets around. I have personally fostered a kitten named Twizzler and it was such a rewarding experience to both myself and to her since she is now adopted. Additionally, I got to become more involved with the community as I am now an official member of Conrad’s Strays and have even been invited to multiple fundraiser events and adoption fairs to help more animals in need. Animals help us with so many things, like calming us down when life gets tough, causing a laugh now and again; so, isn’t it time that we give back by preventing them from living on
Central Idea: Adopting an animal from the shelter has many benefits for not only you but also for animals.
Americans now are spending way too much money on their pets. In our society, people nowadays are going overboard on what they consider necessary for their animals. People are spending money in the thousands just for their pets to have a few more months of agony and pain. Some people even care more about their animals over their own family. Animals are great and make our lives better but when they are suffering and all we can do is extend their pain for a few months and pay thousands of dollars it just isn’t worth it.
Millions of lives just as innocent as the most generous child; Trapped in the barriers we know as cages, that they know as Hell; Too many lives for humanity to just be a bystander. Each and every day is filled with a million moments and opportunities for us to take a stand and make a change. Animal shelters around the world are constantly filling with new animals; it is simply too much for the small amounts of staff on their own to make sure every animal gets the love they deserve, as well as making sure the shelter is kept tidy and operating. Animal shelters need us, young and old, even if only for an hour. That small span of time can make the world for them; volunteering assures that animals will get daily love, lowers full-time staff stress,
Animals have always been a huge part of my life as long as i can remember. I have had animals since i was a baby and still do. I care about my animals and do not mind spending money on them when absolutely needed. I feel as if they depend on us as their owners to help them and that is exactly what i do. In Burkhard Bilger’s article, “The Last Meow”, he expresses his opinion about how people spend too much money on their pets. Although I agree with Bilger up to a point, I cannot accept his overall conclusion, that we spend too much money on our pets. Although I disagree with much that Bilger says, I fully endorse his final conclusion that sometimes people become obsessive of there pets. Though animals may need medical attention, I do not agree that they need expensive pet beds or fancy designer clothes.

Did you know that 2.7 million cats and dogs are put down. Because bad people are doing this to animals. The way to stop this from happening once and for all is by donating to the ASPCA.

We should start to donate the ASPCA because it is the best animal charity.

Contrary to AAT animal-assisted activities (AAA) are more spontaneous, a meet-and-greet process. Animal-assisted activities are defined by the Delta Society as the integration of animals into activities to facilitate motivation, education, and recreation, encouraging casual interaction without following a specific set of criteria or goals. AAA could include volunteers and their pets visiting a nursing home to encourage positive socialization and interaction amongst residents (Kruger et al.,
It provides food, water and shelter to abandoned, abused or stray dogs/cats, as well as dogs/cats who are in a terrible location. Henry Bergh was the founder of ASPCA in New York in 1866. Henry Bergh started ASPCA in hopes of letting the people see that all animals should be treated with respect and care. Henry Bergh founded ASPCA and devoted his life to helping animals live there life unharmed. Many people heard of his good acts towards helping the lives of dogs/cats around the world and tons of people around the world changed their minds. In fact, he took the first steps in making the very first anti-cruelty act in 1867 along with the help of thousands of supporters. Since 1866 (when ASPCA first began), they have made extreme progress towards improving the lives of pets. They have helped more than 6.5 million dogs/cats and most of those pets have been adopted thanks to ASPCA. They have also brought many people to the realization that dogs/cats are really a girl’s/boy’s best friend and that they should be treated with love. Lastly, ASPCA is very well-known and successful because of how much publicity they have for being an amazing asset to making animals’ lives happy
The Humane Society is a non-profit organization that is here to help stop animal abuse, and animal testing to make sure nothing worse can harm the animals. The Humane Society of the United States has been a leading voice for animals for more than 50 years. (“Be A Hero”) These people go out of their way just to save helpless animals to take care of them and get them into a great home. We work toward a better future for animals by sponsoring worldwide spay and neuter efforts, providing free veterinary care in underserved communities, driving scientific development of alternatives to animal testing, and promoting sustainable, more humane agriculture (“Be A Hero”). This group does this because they strongly believe in to save animals from torture that they would not be in and they just plainly love their job. Tons of people help out with no pay, just volunteering their time for the love of helping animals in
The domestication of dogs has greatly benefited society for a variety of reasons. Firstly, dogs have been proven to be able to be trained as service dogs in order to help those with physical and mental disabilities, such as PTSD, blindness, debilitating chronic illness, etc. These service dogs have increased the quality of life for those who need them and continue to help more people every day as they are more recognized as a successful healing tool. Secondly, having dogs as pets has allowed those who are lonely or unable to have children to have an emotional relationship. Having a dog around allows one to feel as if they have a purpose in the world besides themselves, and also allows for people to generally have something to take care of. This relationship saves lives for those who are on the edge and desperately need something to hold them to the world. Finally, dogs have provided as productive members of society through the police force and hospital service (previously mentioned). Police
