People should adopt dogs from shelters and rescue organizations because it can not only save them money, but help stop overcrowding in shelters, and end the production of puppy mills. There are too many animals and not enough homes. Shelters have been facing a pet overpopulation problem for the last few decades. Many animals are found wandering around streets as strays, and some are given up by their owners who no longer want to, or cannot provide care for them. To help reduce pet overpopulation, it is important to have your pet sterilized, this is an effective method and will not cause pets to reproduce.
Some people believe that zoos are the place where wild animals can be protected from dangers, including extinction, hunting, and illness. Although this claim seems valid, who knows that those animals are feeling protected, nobody is going to feel happy of being caged in a little space. What is more, when animals cannot live in their natural environment, their lives can be in danger as bad as living in wildness. For instance, the food that the zoo feeds can be unsuitable for them and cause illnesses or even deaths. Animals live separately from its family in the zoo, and there is usually no parents who could teach them basic skills, which could help the animal to survive in the wildness.
They are unlikely to be adopted, unlikely to be loved. Forced to just sit and wait for a lifetime, a cough announcing their death, a whimper calling their descent into despair. This is the unfortunate truth for shelters; shelter animals did not choose this life, so why should we make them live it? There is a common saying a quote first voiced by Karen Davison that fits the situation beautifully, “Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.” One does not even have to adopt to change the world for an animal, doing a simple task, as simple of one as taking a dog outside and walking it; that will make all the difference. According to TheDodo, out of the 7.6 million pets dropped off at a shelter per year, only 2.7 million get adopted.
People still Buying and Breeding instead of adopting and rescue animals. The typical stray are domesticated animals, once family pets, thrown out into the streets when owners can no longer afford to feed them or when they get sick and their pet owner doesn't want to deal with making them better (financially, physically or emotionally). The typical stray is the result of unwanted pets who are dumped into the streets intact (intact = pets whose pet owners did not practice spay/neuter). The typical stray is even the result of intact pets who are allowed out of their homes to roam freely in the streets, who come and go into their home or property as they want. These intact animals then mate with other strays, get pregnant and give birth to more unwanted dogs or cats.
Stray animals that aren’t neutered reproduce and then there are even more animals on the street. The homeless animal population has skyrocketed due to the following reasons: lack of commitment on the part of the pet owner, the belief that pets are disposable, the misconception that the Humane Society or shelters can take care of all unwanted pets, and failure of the pet owner to spay and neuter animals(The Humane Society of Central Illinois). That being said, it is believed that animals are just objects. Once they aren’t cute anymore or they aren’t worth the effort and money to take care of, they are something that can just be thrown outside and forgotten about. This fuels the growth of stray
Additionally, some residential housing complexes, such as apartments, do not allow animals to dwell in their place. Consequently, families must figure out what to do with their extra family member. However, sometimes their pets may have run off. Not all residential housing facilities, for example, apartments, allows pets to inhabit there. The most common resolution: give the animal a new home.
Instead of providing animals with lifetime care, zoos separate animals that have built lifetime long bonds causing traumatic transitions all their life. Spending the day at your local zoo has been a preferred attraction for years, but a lot of people are not informed about the consequences it has on many of its inhabitants. Animals often are seen performing extensive pacing in their enclosure, over grooming themselves, and sham-chewing as a result of their unnatural confinement. Through time there have been numerous recognized cases of humans caging animals for entertainment. CBC.ca writes about many early versions of zoos.

Nowadays, having a pet has become a trend in all countries, and people are in search of pure blooded and rare dogs. As having a pet became more familiar to many families, animal shelter issues tend to be more critical. Many animals are forced to be strays, but each of them have rights to live and pursuit their wellbeing. It is essential for pet owners to be concerned about the importance of having responsibility to take care of their own pets until their pets die. Animal shelters are terribly distressed about the numbers of dogs they have to gas every day.
Taking the example of Hurricane Katrina that struck New Orleans in 2005, a total of approximately 600,000 dogs were left stranded after the hurricane struck. While there were smaller response animal rescue groups such as the Lollypop Farm and Last Chance for Animals that set out to save these stranded animals, government resources were directed towards relief efforts for people in rescue centers, such as those in the Super Bowl. It is in government interest to direct their resources to saving human lives, as humans are those to contribute to the economy and keep society running the way it does. To direct their primary resources to animals would result in the death of many people. This goes to show that in a case of disaster where resources are limited, human welfare should be prioritized.
