Animals can feel alone, happy, sad, and scared; but more often than not they feel alone, just like humans. Across the globe, 7.6 million animals per year are being brought into animal shelters. Now knowing that information, add in the fact that only 1 out of 10 animals that are born actually find homes; the rest either die or make their way to a shelter. Unfortunately, nine out of ten shelters are kill shelters. Meaning if animals aren’t adopted, they are euthanized.
A dog park where dogs can be off leash to learn how to communicate with other dogs to lower the amount of dog aggression and barking would be wonderful! Esspecially when your state has a rule of no dogs off leash. How are dogs suppossed to learn? If there is a dog park there will be less dog aggression then there will be barely problems with people taking other people to court when a dog attacks another owner 's dog. A lot of the times people don 't teach their dogs how to treat other dogs at a young age and now we all have this
One reason why the animals are being euthanized is because the shelters are too over populated. You may say that this is a good reason. Did you know this though? According to aspca.org “Of the cats entering shelters, approximately 37% are adopted, 41% are euthanized, and less than 5% of cats who came in as strays are returned to their owner”. That is just the amount of cats being euthanized throughout the country.

As more U.S. citizens choose breeder-bred animals, the demand for breeders and puppy mills increase.
That is a very very low number because each year approximately 2.7 million animals are euthanized (For veterinarians, Iditarod is all about the sled dogs). Out of those 1.2 million of those are dogs. Some of those does are at kill shelters because they were abandoned. So it’s that also animal cruelty if a dog is healthy so why would you kill them. Also each year 16,000 dogs killed each year in organized dog
This is called socialization and can lead to an outgoing and confident dog. Socialization starts at birth when the puppy is vulnerable to good and bad experiences. It is important to expose your puppy to other people and animals so they learn to accept them in their world. If they have positive experiences before they turn 16 weeks, they are less likely to develop fear. Some tips for curbing your dog’s behavior are: • Keep him busy so he doesn’t follow you around the house • Pick up your keys and open and close the door without going anywhere • When you do go out, leave a radio or the TV on so the house doesn’t seem so empty • Make sure you spend at least two hours a day with you dog.
Each year about 70,000 people are severely disabled or killed from unexpected reactions that passed animal testing. This evidence shows that the results of animal testing are inaccurate.

If the animal is lucky enough to survive, they are either placed in some of the cruelest conditions or even released into the wild. Some animal testing labs are nice enough to care after the testing, but that does not matter because the animal will continue to go through testings until death. Animals are supposed to be part of family memories or something that can place a smile on someone’s face on a bad day. These continuous testings only bring tears to our eyes or a frown that unfortunately, cannot be turned upside

I know there will be bitter sweet moments when the animals go up for adoption. I have to remind myself that when we prepare one animal to go home with a family, we making room for another animal we can pick up and provide shelter and food to. As a Veterinary Tech, I know all my days won’t consist of sunshine. I know there will be times of sorrow when I have to assist the Veterinary with tough decision like euthanasia to families, or face issues morally and trying to understand why we would have to euthanasia healthy animals (because the owners cannot take care of them), or animals in pain that can make a full recovery (due to the owners being unable to pay for surgery). I’m looking forward to extend my love for animals to help others with their animal medical needs.
