Meaning if animals aren’t adopted, they are euthanized. Logically, we all know that’s not fair; but its an everyday thing. If we could decrease the number of animals in shelters, or strays, that wouldn’t be as big of an issue. Walking down the street you see tons of homeless people holding up signs asking for work, money, food or prayers. When you see this some people feel pain and others tend to look right through it.
As people continue to buy animals from breeders and puppy mills they fail to remember all of the animals suffering on the streets and in animal shelters. As people continue to not place an I.D. tag or a microchip on their pet, they are contributing to the homeless animal population. When people don’t spay or neuter their pet, the animal homelessness population rises. As people fail to consider the needs of an animal when they’re purchasing one, the risk of abandoning them increases.
If you have ever volunteered at a no-kill shelter, you constantly hear, ‘I came here because you don’t kill the animals.’ In the website, “Ten Reasons to Consider No Kill Shelters,” it concludes, “Other people go only to adoption guarantee shelters because traditional shelters make them feel guilty and depressed.” From past experience, I personally don’t enjoy going into a traditional shelter because I know what they do to the animals if there is too many them. This all shows that no-kill shelters boost adoption. And lastly, no- kill animal shelters are profitable to us by creating a charitable mission. This means that we actually benefit by helping out with sparing the lives of pets as much as possible. In relation to the text, “Mattie’s Fund,” which states, “By saving all of the healthy and treatable cats and dogs, adoption guarantee shelters are able to fulfill their life saving mission.” To top that off, when you do something good for someone else, you feel good- same concept with animals.To sum up, no- kill shelters create a charitable
One case of this being shown is when children see what is happening to these animals it very much hurts their views on life and societies actions. For example an article written by Jenson E. states, “It is hardly surprising to learn that most children visiting zoos are neither empowered nor educated by the experience of seeing captive wild animals so far removed from their natural habitat. Zoos present an entirely false view of both the animals themselves, and of the real and very urgent issues facing many species in their natural homes. This new research appears to confirm what we have said for many years. Zoos do not educate nor do they empower or inspire children to become conservationists”(Jenson E.).
Wwhenever they are sick and need help, they never get special care from a vet to see if everything is okay., Mand most importantly, they never get love and affection. Some of them do not even know what love is and how it feels to have a owner that would do anything for their dog. Whenever the sick dogs breed they pass on that sickness to their puppies. Once their puppies get sick they only last about nine9 to ten10 days and then their sickness will cause them to die off. The owners of puppy mills will sell the puppies to Ppetsmart, Ppetco, and other breeders around the area.
This is one of the reasons the puppies and their mothers die very frequently in the mills. As mentioned above, puppy mills owner has shifted their emphasis from welfare to commerce. They want to earn the maximum profit with the minimum cost. Hence, most of the time, these puppies do not receive any veterinary care as it costs a lot for veterinary
A large portion of the population have suffered from diseases and did not get the health care they needed because the big business owners are not aiding their workers. The main company which controlled everyone had been the Packingtown. It was a meat company. There they did everything from producing the meat to packing it and shipping it. This provided many jobs for the people living in packingtown.
The animals that are affected by this are pigs, cows, chickens and even turkeys in some instances. People do not realize the abuse and cruelty that animals go through just to live the short lives they do. There are many farms that the conditions of the animals are so bad that they can die just from the lack of unsanitary conditions and lack of proper nutrition. We are unaware of all the types of steroids or drugs that these animals are fed or injected
Without knowing what the long term consequences are feral ungulates which include pigs, goats and sheep were all brought to Hawaii by foreigners as a food source and some were also brought in for sport hunting. What started as a good intention soon turned into a menace for the Hawaiian Islands as these animals destroyed native plants, threatens the existence of native animals, and lastly threatens the health and welfare. With no predators except for humans, the feral ungulates reproduced at an alarming rate and nothing was put into place to control the populations of these animals. Therefore the population grew and the problems that came with it also became a huge factor in the livelihood of all that inhabits the Hawaiian Islands. Methods to control the population of all feral ungulates need to be put into place to protect the native species of Hawaii which in turn would preserve the traditions and the culture of the Islands.
Overcrowding remains the number one issue in animal shelters worldwide. The most common culprit for this: stray canines, and felines. So many animals roam the streets. These poor creatures stroll around alone, cold, hungry, and petrified. Because of the overpopulation, animal control must step in.
However, even with the supposed “protections” afforded by the AWA and PHS policy, millions of animals continue to suffer and die in unnecessary, inadequately monitored, and counterproductive research. In the end, the minimal protections offered by the AWA and PHS policy provide no real safety or relief to the millions of animals in labs and offer only a false sense of security to the caring public. All it takes is for people to know the facts about animal testing and what truly goes on behind closed doors. If more people understood how it affects the lives of animals, maybe, just maybe their could be a change in the way people think about animal
“Many standard practices in animal agribusiness are so cruel that they’re just out of step with mainstream American values about how animals out to be treated,” says Paul Shapiro, vice president of farm animal protection at the Human Society. This quote shows that animal cruelty in the United States is a poor representative of our nation and gives Americans an image of having low moral values. Factory farm animals are kept in very puny cages. Obesity is on the rise in America. 2 of 3 people in America are overweight or obese.
What Is a Puppy Mill? There are roughly about 10 to 15,000 puppy mills in the United States that are taking advantage of animals just to make an extra dollar, these dogs have to live through unsanitary living conditions which can be deadly, and are being abused without taking into consideration of what it is doing to them physically. Dogs that are in puppy mills have to live through unsanitary conditions. They are often kept in small wire cages that are inside sheds. These cages are not big enough for what is normally needed.
Calves born of dairy cows are not even allowed to drink the milk that their mother produces, ironically, that milk is for human consumption only. Get this, more than 80% if antibiotics that are used in the United States are fed to livestock. These factories farmed animals are forced to live in such inhumane and disgustingly dirty conditions, these antibiotics are needed -and in large quantities to try and keep the animals healthy. Because newborn calves that are male are not useful to the dairy industry and are considered a by-product. The male calves are kept in crates that are no more that 30 inches wide and 72 inches long.
In fact, the animals are often stored in small cages or spaces with barley any room to move, many will catch a disease from their poor quality of living. Social interaction is crucial because the animals become tired of the same environment, this leads to aggression. To control the aggression, animals are often pumped with drugs. Often, if an animal is sick there will be no veterinary help because of the high cost that is required, as a result, cattle have died from dehydration or other reasons regarding the lack of care. Because the animals are seen as a profit they are bred in a way that is convenient for the slaughterhouse.
