Many people know about the existence of puppy mills. However, they do not know the true reasons why many animal cruelty prevention organizations have started attacking the basis of puppy mills. Puppy mills are a commercial breeding business where dogs are mass produced. Which does not sound horrible until you find out about the filthy and unhealthy environment, these vulnerable puppies live in until they get shipped out to a local pet shop. The dogs bred in these puppy mills are typically damaged either physically or emotionally.
If people don’t begin to prevent unwanted animal births, the animal homelessness population will continue to soar, leaving many animals lives at risk. Though animal homelessness can seem hopeless, there are solutions. The continuation of puppy mills and breeders in the U.S. causes an addition to the animal homelessness rates. Say no to puppy mills and “avoid buying animals from pets stores” (10 Ways To Help). Stop buying puppies in pet stores that were outcomes of puppy mills.
Plus, it’s way more cheaper than buying a new dog. Along with the reasons of adopting rather than buying includes that, many of the pets from shelters and rescues are already housetrained, which means you’re not only saving a pet’s life, you may be saving your rug. To begin with, adopting a dog rather than buy gives a dog another chance at life. According to the article, Ten Reasons to Adopt a Pet: “Dogs were abandoned and abused. This leaves the dogs traumatized and rethinking who they should trust.” If you adopt it’ll help a dog live the life it’s always deserved.
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.
Some of the prices that cost for the Boxers range because it depends on the person that is selling the puppy for adoption. Boxers need care for but not a lot as much as any other breed (“Boxers”). They will need to be brushed once every week, and they need really good nutrition. This means that they will need a minimum of grooming, but they need a lot of nutrition (“Boxer dogs”). I love Boxers; however they are not the breed of dog that I want to have.
Giving second chances, that's what Cynthia Rylant the author of the short story “Stray” wanted to teach us. Just because something or maybe someone isn’t cared for or loved doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be. In the story, Doris clearly gave a puppy a chance by taking the stray, abandoned on the street puppy into her home and nurturing it. In the end her dad did too by having a heart and not leaving the puppy at the pound. I think the theme of the story is to give second chances.
Pathos is a rhetorical strategy used to intervene with the emotions of viewers. The entire ad is centered around the emotional effect the content had on people. There is no arguing that this is a feel-good advertisement. The beginning shows a puppy digging under the fence and escaping from the puppy adoption center. The puppy runs to the Clydesdale barn and meets a horse.
Most of the time, these poor souls have already been neglected and abused. By giving them a loving home, I help them trust people and other dogs again. Sometimes I see a dog get returned in less than 48 hours. Some of the excuses are: the dog is no longer potty trained, separation anxiety, he tried to bite me. These are all legitimate reasons to return a dog.
However, if you adopt from a shelter or a similar institution, the welfare of the dog matters to the people at the shelter, and they are happy to answer questions and give advice on how to keep a happy home. Plus, some actually check in after a month or so, provide preliminary health insurance, and other benefits. SIDE NOTE It's a common misconception that pets end up in shelters because there is something wrong with their health or behavior. The reason is usually more related to a person's circumstance: a divorce, a big move, or financial hardship. POINT 6 Shelters are Never not busy.
These pets are sent to shelters where they reproduce which results in more pets in the shelter. The shelter then has to euthanize the animals that are extra or they have to send these animals to a non-profit organization that will take care of them. American Humane Association also supports research to assess the causes for pet abandonment. Old research studies suggest that 7 to 20 percent of pets entering a home are no longer in that home six months after acquisition. These animals often end up at shelters, contributing to the pet “overpopulation” issue.
