Onus of safety for a community is priority; aggressive dogs are imminent on community safety and need to be punished for it. The Bible calls people to love the earth and take care of God’s creation. All dogs can be dangerous and there are steps that people can take to keep their family safe. Aggression is caused by things out of the dogs control, and there are much worse things in the world. Aggressive Dog Breeds “Nationwide, the No.
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.
People who are in charge of these centers as well at the employees who work as care takers try their best to recreate the natural habitats of these animals but sadly that cannot be accomplished completely, so due to this change in environment, the behavior of the animals also change and it has proven to be difficult to overcome these changes. Some of the major changes in behavior are a decrease in the ability to know how to avoid predators, an increase in sleeping patterns, decrease in overall activity, and some problems in social behaviors as well as the self efficiency of the animal as they would lose the ability to hunt because in many captive breeding centers, the animals are provided with food and have no need to hunt. Some captive species even have problems in reproduction such as the endangered rhino populations for
So to protect these animals, we’ve created zoos and nature parks for the animals, but are both of them really benefiting the animals? Although they may seem to keep them safe from being hurt, it’s taking them away from their home. To start off, We need to make animals feel safe and not put them though pressure or force them to live in a secluded their entire life. That reason being; because Zoos don’t really protect the animals mindsets, Nature may be better for them but we can’t force animals to mate, and we need to stop hunting endangered species. Zoos might help with protecting these endangered animals, but it turns their mind into something else.
Animal testing is a controversial topic with lots of different opinions and ideas on both sides regarding to the ethics of this practice. Although many animals are abused and killed every year a cause of this cruel and painful method, scientists, cosmetic and drug companies continue to face opposition due to the fact that they use animals for the safety of their products and medical research. Some feel that this procedure goes against animals rights, while others see the positive impact that animal testing brings to humans. What is animal testing? For scientists, animal testing is the ‘‘use of animals to develop medical treatments, determine the toxicity of medications, and check the safety of products destined for human use, commercial, and health care uses’’ ( Pro con, http://animal-testing.procon.org/).
More than 7.6 million animals are abused, killed, and abandoned every year in the United States alone. This is a real problem that needs attention brought to it in order to solve it. Animal cruelty is when a person purposely chooses to hurt an animal or does not take care of the animal. It is illegal to be cruel and abusive to an animal but people still decide to mistreat animals. There are many reasons why a person is cruel to an animal, those include: the person was mistreated as a child and that is the only way they know how to treat living things, they simply want to mistreat the animal, they do not know that they are hurting the animal and do not see it as a problem (“PAWS - People Helping Animals.” The Animal Abuse).
Consequently, these programs lead to a surplus of animals. Zoo enclosures can only hold so many animals so this surplus of them makes the living conditions even worse. On the contrary, it is cool to see animals that you would not normally get the chance to see, but despite this, animals need to be well taken care of in a good environment. Animals should not be taken out of their home to become an attraction for people. They should be taken out of their home only to be helped and then
After reading through and reviewing the articles, one can see that there is a clear trend in the research being done that shows predominantly negative impacts selective breeding has on dogs. Health in selectively bred dogs is the top concern when dealing with ethics, due to the fact that in many cases lives are cut short and the quality of life is viewed as, to many, not worth living, which is seen as unfair to the dogs in an ethical viewpoint. From dog show judges to veterinarians, there are many known diseases in dogs that is the product of selective breeding, and although there have been attempt to fix these errors, the topic is still ongoing as hip dysplasia, breathing issues, and cardiac problems are still prevalent in certain purebreds.
This causes health concerns for some animals. According to The New York Times, Dr. Georgia Mason and Dr. Ros Clubb have recently found out that, “ The problems- including high infant mortality and a tendency to pace around and around in the cage-are directly related to the size of the animal’s home range in the wild.” This proves that some animals are not getting the proper living conditions they need in order to be healthy and survive. Animals that are placed in these habitats do not get the skills they need for when they are released back in to the wild. James Owen for National Geographic News in his article, “Most Captive-Born Predators Die If Released” shares information from the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom, “The odds of animals such as tigers and wolves surviving freedom are only 33 percent.” The same article also mentions animal behavior
They could have been mistreated and underfed. Both shelter animals and pet store animals could have behavioral issues from their past experiences. Animal shelters have unwanted dogs that they have rescued from horrible situations and they are getting them ready to be re-homed. Pet stores have animals that have been mistreated while going through breeding mills. The animals from both places have had a rough life.
Puppy mills are more prone to having diseases that are present from birth. This includes diseases that can lead to heart conditions and other blood and respiratory disorders that the puppy can develope. Since the puppies leave their mother at such a young age, they often have problems with anxiety and also may have behavior problems throughout their lifetime. Since the dogs spend most of their life in the cages their hair and nails can grow onto the cage, which causes them to be stuck in one spot and not be able to move. The spend most of their days unintended and fights could break out, and injurges are untreated.
The puppies, which are sold at designer breed prices, are abused, neglected, and, due to their lack of proper veterinary care, plagued with health problems. Some of the effects of improper breeding in puppy mills can include epilepsy, heart disease, lung disease, musculoskeletal disorders, endocrine disorders, blood disorders, deafness, eye problems, and respiratory problems later on in life as an adult. In fact, puppies will only develop these symptoms later on in life. As puppies, they will arrive at pet stores, or in homes, with Giardia (a parasite that causes diarrhea), Parvovirus (A highly contagious viral disease that is life threatening), distemper (A viral disease in dogs that causes a fever and coughing), upper respiratory infections, Pneumonia. Mange (parasitic mites on a dog’s skin), fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites, heartworm, and chronic diarrhea.
(Source F) is how many animals are being used and experimented. It is a high percentage of some animals being tested for stuff like makeup and other treatments. Animals need to have support, because after the testings done they die or look awful. Their skin is patchy or they can not see or hear anymore. Animals need to feel safe and that is where humans should advocate the rights for
*Most of all, bad owners are being held responsible for the wrongs they do and teach these animals. * What are the cons of breed specific regulations? It stops families from having bully breeds as pets, people fear the dogs may turn on them or bite children. It stops people from adopting or rescuing a pit bull because they now believe they are not able to be rehabilitated. It promotes the stereotyping of certain dog breeds.
People need to start spaying and neutering their pets pets. They need to stop because it is an overpopulation of domestic pets, and if they spay and neuter them, that would help a lot. Cats and dogs produce a good number of puppies and kittens. All of those is not going to get a home. This is why we need to spay and neuter our pets.
