Not just of the breeding dogs in the farm but most of their puppies as well. As cute as the puppy in the pet shop may seem you should always buy from a proper breeder or an animal shelter this way you will know that you are not contributing towards puppy mills and killing innocent dogs. This is one dog that was lucky enough to be saved from a puppy mill. If the dogs are not rescued and given another home from the animal shelter they will be put down and the owner of the puppy mills get away with murder. Not just of the breeding dogs in the farm but most of their puppies as well.
It may end up hurting the responsible breeders out there and not affecting the desperate ones as the reputable ones don't profit much at all. I have listed a few thoughts on possible solutions. 1) Ban pet stores that sell dogs purchased from puppy mills from operating. 2) The need to enact legislation that would regulate breeding operations. 3) Educate the public on how these mills operate and the conditions the animals live in.
BSL was made to try to regulate specific breeds of dogs. Usually, BSL targets breeds that are thought of as dangerous breeds. Proponents of BSL claim that BSL is a great way to reduce the threatening pit bull breed (www.animallaw.info, 2007). People who support BSL usually have imagined pit bulls as vicious dogs bred just to fight. BSL is slowly being seen as ineffective laws because leaders of communities are being educated more about pit bulls.
Over 50% of the dogs that come into our shelter are Pit Bulls or Pit Bull mixes that would require insurance for the pound to adopt them out. More often then not, these dogs are euthanized and not even given a chance to be adopted. The harsh reality is that a large amount of the homes that these Pit Bulls come from are in the inner city and are severely abused. Despite the fact that there are a large amount of potentially adoptable dogs in pound there are a
Animal cruelty comes in many forms and has many grave consequences. Therefore it should be acknowledged and stopped. Neglect and abandonment are the most common forms of companion animal abuse in the United States. “Other dogs and cats are deliberately abandoned by their guardians to fend for themselves in the wild or on the streets” (Regan, 84). This statement
This natural urge could be taken to the extreme that one overindulges in pet ownership. This could mean owning too many pets, not properly caring for your pets or overbreeding your pets. All these overindulgences are the reasons the Humane Society of Southern Arizona exists. They are based on the idea of rehoming homeless pets, providing care for animals in need and reducing pet overpopulation. The opposite of this urge would be to not have any pets at all.
The factories are very dangerous places to work and most workers, hired specifically by the companies are undocumented citizens. These people feel that because they don’t have the proper papers for work, they don’t have proper rights, so they complain less about unsatisfactory working conditions. By supporting these huge companies we are not only harming the animals rights but we are allowing these companies to treat their employees with the same lack of respect as they have for the animals. I would now like to go on and explore an alternative meat processing industry, the organic one. People nowadays know that eating organic is usually better, not only does it taste better, but it is more beneficial for the environment, our health, and ethically.
Ethical Treatment of Animals Animals have played an important role in many aspects of this world; some look upon these roles with favoritism, some with disgust. Animals give live birth and are considered different from humans by some people because of their behavior. Some animals are consumed as food by humans and other animals or trapped for their furs. Many times people get animals as pets and neglect them. Some animals are pulled out of their habitat and are used as research; yet some humans think they do not deserve any rights because they are animals.
Throughout that time these animals become so unadapt to their new surroundings, they become less likely to return to their natural state which gives those experimenting more reason to test them. Most of these senseless experiments are funding by the federal government using the public’s tax dollars and by health charities, which are wasting precious dollars on irrelevant experiments on animals instead of spending the money on promising human-based research (Peta). Norfleet 2 A few companies have banned the use of animal testing, but often the companies that continue to test animals produce inaccurate or misleading results. These results are giving the okay to more and more products being sold to you. Why continue to test animals that may give inaccurate results on products that can still be sold to the human race?
These reasons sometimes push animal shelters to tight corners and cause them to eliminate some of the pets that have not been adopted. If more people came up and adopted the dogs, fewer animals would be eliminated or tortured by those who adopt them for weird reasons. The other reason why one should adopt a dog is that when one adopts a dog from an animal shelter, he or she not only gets to save money but also gets to adopt healthy dogs. There is a common misconception that animals found in animal shelters usually have something wrong with them. The fact is there are numerous reasons that may make one give up a pet to an animal shelter.
