One of the reasons why people support these brands is because they hope that the parent company will take the hint. On the contrary, many people don’t support these brands because the money they spend will ultimately be going to the parent company (crueltyfreekitty.com). I have chosen to support these brands because after all, they are still certified as cruelty-free. Even if profits will end up in the parent company’s hands, I do believe that a message can be sent to the parent company, and possibly even stop testing. Another controversial issue is mistreatment of animals.
So they believe that is a better benefit to risk an animal life than a human life. The World Medical Association Declare of Helsinki states that human trials should be preceded by tests on animals. But the real truth is that the drugs that they use on the animals aren’t necessary safe for us , for example the 1950s sleeping pill thalidomide, which caused 10,000 babies to be born with severe deformities. Scientist tries it on pregnant mice, rats, guinea pigs, cats, and hamsters, but it did not result in birth defects unless the drug was administered at extremely high doses. In conclusion animals testing should not be done because animals are like human beings, they feel, they live, they eat so why would we want to kill animals for any type of testing when we could try it on a human being that might want to let the scientist try it on them.
Testing on animals ; some people believe that this is harmful. Testing on animals whether it's medicine, food, or anything it is not harmful. If testing on rats it will not hurt their species . This is because the birth rate is 22-26 days and 6-13 pups per litter. I am pro animal testing because animals repopulate In the wild and in captivity so,testing won't hurt.
In the commentary “Let People Own Exotic Animals” it states in line 4-7, “Responsible private ownership of exotic animals should be legal if animal welfare is taken care of. Terry Thompson did not represent the typical responsible owner.” Thompson was not a good caretaker of exotic animals, and it was not the animals’ faults they were set free to put people in danger, it was Thompson’s irresponsibility. In the Article Of the Week it talks about how Wolf Run Wildlife Refuge puts safety fences around their animals to ensure they stay inside. If exotic animal owners do this they can own exotic animals without facing the consequence of them losing
Are Zoos Unethical By:Kalynn Deppe An issue that has been hotly debated since the brink of zoos has been whether they are ethical or not. Although some believe that zoos can be beneficial to animals, thousands of research has shown this not to be true. The main reasons zoos are devious is because, there artificial environments are harmful, the animals are more prone to diseases, and it can damage children's views on society. To begin, zoos are unprincipled due to the fact that they take animals out of the wild and place them in synthetic environments that have failed to meet the animals designated standard of living. For example, research has shown that some larger animals need for space is not fulfilled in their confined cages.
The issue that causes the most anger for many breeders is when people ignore how much health testing they do for their dogs. Many people believe that health testing is a wonderful way to prevent many genetic diseases. Health testing looks at the genes of an animal and searches for impurities, therefore, if an impurity is found the animal is not used for breeding to ensure it does not pass down that disease (Peck). There are a lot of breeders who believe that this fact is overlooked when people who are anti-purebreds make their arguments. Stephanie Poot was one breeder who was extremely offended after reading an article that slandered dog breeders and responded with an article called “Dog Breeder Offended” in which she calls out the article that made her and fellow breeders out to be monsters.
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.
They are loving and caring just like any other small fluffy pet, they are just bigger in size. Pits are even used for service animals. Enos, a times writer, informed people that,“pitbulls help locate missing children and lost dementia patients. They are seizure watchdogs, diabetic alert dogs, comfort nursing home residents”(“The Problem with people”). Pitbulls are prohibited in certain areas such as apartment complexes and even cities, so people with a pitbull as their service dog cannot go to these certain areas.
When you think of animals you always think about how much you distaste them or how cute they looked in a video you saw on Youtube. You never would think about the mistreatment animals face whether it is in their own environment or in a laboratory. Some people refuse to acknowledge the mistreatment of animals, but that does not make the problem go away. That is why animals need something to protect them from the unjust they face.Animals need a Bill of Rights to protect them from neglect, unnecessary experiments and humiliation, and have a right to live freely in their natural habitat. In the article “A Change of Heart about Animals” Jeremy Rifkin includes ideas that support the argument that a Bill of Rights will protect animals from being neglected and uncared for by their owners or caretakers.
Over 56 billion animals are killed every day for animal testing and meat. Some people call themselves “animal lovers”, but how could they be, when they’re part of their suffering? But if you love and want to help animals, it really does benefit being vegan. There is no difference between a cow and a dog. The only difference is your perspective.
“Dogs do not have many advantages over people, but one of them is extremely important: euthanasia is not forbidden by law in their case; animals have the right to a merciful death.” (Milan Kundera) many people ask why is it allowed to for us to put down our pets when they are in pain but we can’t do it for people. Keeping people alive by machines when they are in pain and can’t move or do anything isn’t living its cruelty.” If I had terminal cancer, I had a few weeks to live, I was in tremendous amount of pain if they just effectively wanted to turn off the switch and legalese that by legalizing euthanasia, I 'd want that(john Key) Many people believe it’s a good way to let go of someone go but others think it’s wrong to end someone’s life prematurely if they still had some chance to live.
Animal Cruelty “One cannot look deeply into the eyes of an animal and not see the same depth, complexity and feeling we humans lay exclusive claims to,” stated Nan Sea Love. Just like what Nan Sea Love said, what is in animals is the same that is in humans, it does not mean it is okay to harm animals. So I ask you, people of Elk County, to prevent animal abuse in our cities. Animal cruelty needs to be explained, prevented, and donations need to be made to local human societies. In the first place, most people are uneducated.
Charities such as, Last Chance for Animals and The Humane Society of the United States. While these charities have similar goals, eliminating animal abuse and neglect, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, does a better job of achieving this. While they could spend their money a fair bit better, they are consistently raising tens of millions of dollars each year to help towards this cause. This charity is one of the most recognized animal charities in the United States and this helps them even more in achieving their goals. Also, unlike a charity such as Last Chance for Animals, who focuses on preventing animal experimentation and the use of animals for food and clothing, the ASPCA concentrates on stopping abuse and neglect of animals in the average
The meat industry wants the public to know as little as possible about what goes on with their meat. They give the American public the false idea that their food has been properly cared for its entire life, when in reality the animal was likely given many hormones, lived in a very cramped space and quite possibly never had seen daylight its entire life. Because they try and keep the process a secret, many conditions in the factory could be unsafe. This is why it is vital for slaughterhouses to be more transparent so the conditions are actually safe and people are not just given the falsehood idea that it is. If a light is not shed on what is going on behind closed doors, conditions will only worsen because “most companies would not err on the side of safety without a potentially substantial negative impact on profits” (Simon
Emotional Support Animals: Training for Public Safety Across the nation, the public may be at risk for injury due to untrained animals in our stores. In spite of the increase for support animals in our nation, the United States Government has not addressed the issue that a mandatory system must be in place. Many people view emotional support animals as service animals. These animals help patients with treatment of anxiety, depression, and PTSD symptoms, just to name a few. Yet training is not required at this time for emotional support animals, as it is for service animals.
