(Attention) Approximately 8 million animals enter shelters every year. And, roughly 2.6 million dogs and cats are killed in U.S. shelters annually. ("Statistics", n.d.) II. (Reveal Topic) Just hearing those statistics is alarming to me, this is why I feel everyone should consider adopting not shopping for pets. III.
Ever wondered what goes behind the scenes at puppy mills, when you find out you’ll be shocked. Puppy mills aren’t all they're cracked up to be, in fact if you saw how the animals live and how they're treated. You’ll rethink buying or adopting an animal from a pet store. Puppy mills are horrible places for animals, and they should be closed down. In this speech I will be discussing what a puppy mill is, what they do, why they're bad, the conditions of the animals, and who they sell to.
If all of this is going on, imagine how many dogs are getting put to death. Well, I have the answer. This webiste also states that at least 1.2 million innocent dogs are getting put to death, and it needs to stop. This is what being in a puppy mill is like. As you can see they are squished in cages and don 't look well taken care
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. Now that you know what cruel places that some dogs and puppies come from, I hope you will put a little more time and thought into purchasing an animal from now
This is often because there are many sensationalized stories about these animals, most of which were because owners were not providing care, or the animals were not suited to the owners abilities to provide care or space, thus creating a problem. There are many more bad owners of cats, and dogs, and these pets are just as likely to become problems. To be fair many people are not suitable owners for exotic pets, and many people are not even suitable owners for cats or dogs. As well many people do not understand that when they say "Nobody should own any type of Exotic Pet" they may be lumping such animals as Rabbits, Hamsters, and Budgies, into that
Breeders also like to point out that being a breeder is not cheap. There are a lot of dogs to feed and take care of and even thought they are selling puppies by the end of the year they are only making a small profit (Dibert). Many breeders believe that what they do is what some would call a labor of love. The total amount it costs to take care of so many dogs would shock many. For some that alone shows how much work breeders put into keeping their dogs
With the high number of dogs in shelters, citizens should adopt a dog that needs a home rather than purchasing one (BE10). To aid in the number of people going to shelters to adopt, restrictions should be placed on breeders (BE8). For example, there can only be so many breeders in the country who can only breed so many times a year. This will not only lower the issues of overpopulation, health, and unnecessary appearances but will be healthier for the breeding dogs. Plenty of loving dogs that need homes can be found at local shelters, so adopt, don’t
Adopt, Don’t Buy A cute dog, or a cat is an adorable gift for your family. Especially when they were a little. I want to tell you that adopt an animal is the best option rather than buying them from a breeder or a pet store. But many of you doesn’t know the story behind these amazing creatures. What you heard probably only the good ones.
Never act on impulse: Remember that you’re not buying a new pair of shoes, a pet is an immense responsibility and it will depend on you for many years to come, so if you’re looking for something short-term, don’t get a pet. Sometimes we may not be the best judge to determine our needs, so ask your dearest ones if your lifestyle can work for a pet. Adopt, don’t shop: It is strongly advised that you consider adopting a pet, instead of buying one. There are many wonderful dogs, cats, rabbits and other animals at most local animal shelters. It is easy, all you have to do is walk into your nearest pet adoption centre or animal rescue organization and have a look around.
