In my community, there is a real big problem with the amount of stray dogs on the streets and city animal shelters are so full that there is little they can do to help. There isn’t much funding from the government for animal shelters in Puerto Rico, which makes it a little harder to clean up the streets. And not only is it dangerous to have a large amount of stray dogs in your area, but also could be harmful to the health of the people. The kill rate for the animal shelters in Puerto Rico are at 97%, which are ridiculously high but still does nothing to solve the issue. My goal is to help my community by providing the alternatives to solving the matter of the amount of stray dogs while also lowering the kill rate for those dogs that have not been properly treated or adopted.
The first puppy mills were built on a capitalistic mindset. Which was to produce as many dogs for the least amount of cost. Many puppy mill farmers had little to no experience with dog breeding and did not provide proper socializing or health care which are crucial in the dog 's first couple of weeks. Perhaps the scariest part about puppy mills is that society is letting animal cruelty live in the backyards of our nation. According to the Humane Society of the United States, of the estimated 10,000 puppy mills in the United States, less than thirty percent are actually regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (“Puppy Mills Research”).
Like hotels instead of kennels, braces to fix crooked teeth and other necessities that pet owners believe that they should have for their pet. For example in article “The Last Mewo” the Levering's paid fifteen thousands dollars even if they are in debt, low income, and going through health problem itself. This show us how they use money to save their pets just for few weeks instead of using the money for their own family issues. The money should go to those animals with actual necessities not the ones who are on the verge of death.Animal medicine and veterinary care is becoming pricier; also because our economy is going drastically down, prices of food, clothes, and medication is going up. Bilger believes that rather spending so much money on doing a kidney transplant one’s pet it’s better to put down that pet and stop all that suffering, pain, and wasteful
“Around 4 million dogs are abandoned every year in the USA alone” Says animal-rights-action.com, “In the UK the number of dogs abandoned is estimated to be as high as 130,000 a year, which has hit an eleven year high. Approximately one adoptable, healthy dog or puppy every hour, (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) is put to death in the UK due to not finding a home”… “Pet abandonment statistics world wide are thought to be around six hundred million every year and many countries have extremely cruel animal overpopulation controls.” In this essay, i will explain what could happen and what we could do to help. Chapter 1 Teen Activism Teen activism. You may be asking “What is that?” Well, teen activism is when a child or teen decided to fight for a cause and raise money or protest to help the cause. There are many causes you could help, such as bullying and child labor.
Puppy Mills are large scale commercial breeding facilities where profit is given priority over the well-being of the dogs. Dogs are housed in unsanitary and overcrowded conditions and are deprived of proper food, water, veterinary care, and socialization. Between litters, female dogs are given little to no recovery time in order to maximise profit, which is detrimental to the health of these dogs. There are numerous amounts of effects that cause these dogs to suffer for the rest of their lives, including but not limited to, behavioral and health problems such as deafness, blindness, many different diseases of the kidney and heart, and shortened or missing limbs, just to name a few. Fear, shyness, and sensitivity are a few behavioral effects
Not only that, but canines save many human lives everyday trying to make a safer place in the community. Many people say that too many dogs are being used instead of humans and that they should be looked at as officers not equipment. Back to the other argument, people say they may be shot in the line of duty, yes they may that's the price they could possibly pay for serving. But officers pay the same price that they do, these dogs are not being used as equipment all these dogs have rightful owners that take care of them and provide them with a lovely home and treat them as another officer of the law. Even dogs that go to great risks in combat can even be awarded the medal of honor for their bravery.
In each bit of evidence he brings up, there’s no statement explaining why or how each of these attacks came to be. If all of these attacks were random, and there was no justification for them then it would definitely prove his point much better. He also fails to give statistics. He quotes Aukland mayor Phil Goff to prove his point, saying “Goff pointed to the fact that the number of dog attacks in January this year were double what they were a couple of years ago, saying "every day there's a couple of hospitalisations caused by dog attacks".” But this doesn’t give the reader an amount. Double could mean from one to two, and a couple hospitalizations could be a very small number.
"Pet Overpopulation"). The majority of pets never see their family members again. "26% of dogs are purchased from breeders. 20-30% of cats and dogs are adopted from shelters and rescues, and 2-10% are purchased from pet shops” (PAWS. "Pet Overpopulation").
Countless lives locked away in cages and forgotten about have overwhelmed our society, it has left blood stains on our history as a species and if history has taught us anything, it’s that we have a choice to change our ways of adjusting to situations. A war which was fought in means of ending such criminal acts, yet we as human beings do little to nothing to end the terrible crimes of animal deaths in shelters. Between these problems lies a terrible truth, nearly every year, almost eight million cats and dogs have been placed in shelters around the world. Out of these very large numbers, half will be euthanized. That equals to one animal being put down every 8 seconds.
MY OPINION ON DOG PARKS IN CITIES Dog parks are a great idea for all cities.Dog bites will go down.Property value would increase.Rules should be put in place to respct the part of the community that is against it and to insure the dog park is safe.A community vote should take place just to make it fair to build a dog park. Dog parks in the city are a great idea for everyone who owns a dog.According to the (ASPCA) a dog that does not get enough exercise is more likely to act out such as barking,biting,and destroying things at home and a dog park would put a decrease in those numbers .People who don not have the area to exercise ther dog propely such as people who live in a small area such as a aparment or a condo haveing a dog park would allow them a place to exercise there dog to help these
The opposing passage stated that the park is too expensive and that the fence alone is 70,000 dollars and that dog owners shouldnt pressure the city to provide the space they cannot provide themselves. the park is expensive but worth it because passage one provided solid facts and how this park can benefit dog owners and their dog. the dog park can cut down the amount of dogs that get disgarded in the
