Every year, approximately three million pets in the United States are euthanized because no one wants to give them a home, or because they are homeless and shelters have run out of space for them (Weisbaum par. 3). Spaying and neutering is the simple solution to all of this. If all pet owners spayed and neutered their animals, there would be a very significant decrease in the population of stray animals running around and therefore fewer animals in shelters. In addition, the number of animals being euthanized each year would also decrease in numbers. Spaying and neutering is recommended by many surgical center owners such as Dr. Cathrine Darr, because it is much more humane than seeing unwanted dogs and cats die of starvation, get euthanized
Today we read an article about factory farming of CAFOs. This is where we get most of the meat we eat. Like cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys etc. I’m going to show you what happens in order for you to get your steak dinner, or your tasty bacon in the morning.
In recent times there have been many cases of people bringing their “pets” that would be considered exotic or strange onto airplanes. Their reasoning for this is that these animals are their support animals. This has caused many issues for people trying to fly peacefully and can potentially be dangerous. What is an emotional support animal? “An emotional support animal is a non-human animal that provides companionship and comfort for its human owner or handler”(TherapyPet.org). Many people use dogs or cats as their emotional support animal, but there are some that would consider their exotic pets an emotional support animal as well. Exotic pets should not be considered emotional support animals because they can be potentially harmful to the owner and the people around them and are not usually a domesticated animal.
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
Researchers have found that animals feel pain, suffer, experience stress, affection, excitement and even love. Jeremy Rifkin states that pigs crave affection and easily depressed, if isolated or denied playtime with each other. Being denied to have playtime hurts pigs, we could only imagine their pain when they are locked up for days in the dark with no type of company. The treatment they are being given is nothing like the treatment we would want to get from someone else. With that being said,
The breeders just make money off of animals and they don't even have to keep them in that good of conditions. Also what is the point of getting exotic animals? Like tiger, bears and big ones like that. It is unfair and unsafe for the animals I don't see why people can buy animals that need a lot of space but they give them like none. There needs to be a way to guarantee animal's space. If you're not a Zookeeper, and just a person, you should not have those animals.
The hampshire pig has experienced many changes in evolving from the wild pig to hampshire pig. Over the past few centuries, the hampshire pig’s biggest predator is the human who kills them for food, they have changed their diet from turkeys and wild berries to different types of slop that contain a mixture of random foods, and they were spread from country to country by humans who wanted to trade and sell them. The hampshire pig has a black coat with a white band around the front legs and around the shoulders. The average weight of the hampshire pig is seven hundred pounds. Out of the seven hundred pounds and the average height of two feet, about forty percent of that is muscle. The hampshire pig has a wide forehead with a good amount of space

As I drive around Phoenix with my puppy best friends, Sophie and Paco, there is not a single worry in the world for us. Sophie, with her long, brown, sun kissed fur, bobs her head out the car window as she enjoys the fresh breeze flowing through her fur. Paco rests his little head on the window that is halfway rolled down, as his wet tongue absorbs the wind. On our weekly car rides, my best friends and I pass by a building that has signs with dogs and cats all over. This building is a shelter for animals that are not so fortunate like my two furry friends. This place is called the Arizona Humane Society. The Arizona Humane Society is an outstanding organization for different animals that provides health, home, and love to animals that await
When you decide to do business with a Chihuahua breeder you aren 't buying a lamp from someone you will never see again, you are buying a pet that you will be raising in partnership with your breeder.

Review of Main Points: You will save money while still obtaining a new companion who has probably never ever known how it feels to have a home and to be loved. Also, by adopting from the Humane Society or animal shelter, you are not supporting the puppy mill industry or other cruel facilities in any way.
When asked what they want to be when they grow up, most children say astronaut, doctor, president, or veterinarian. I was one of those kids that replied “a veterinarian” when asked by others. Usually, when one gets older, that career goal changes into something different, but not for me. I did not know it then, but my dream of being a veterinarian would stick with me throughout my life, and influence the choices I make in order to reach that long-term goal.
Mini pigs are pigs that have been selectively downsized over many generations in order to produce a pig that stays small, and can therefore make a great indoor pet. A mini pig will generally grow 12-16 inches and will reach 25-65 pounds; similar to a smaller dog. Mini pigs need a lot of attention; they do best with a companion pig to keep them company. They work well for people with allergies because they have coarse hair, called bristles, rather than fur. Like their larger counterparts, mini pigs enjoy a roll in the mud outdoors every so often.
