Since the broker is acting as the middle person, it is difficult to find out whether the puppies come from these puppy mills or not. Some pet stores will lie about a lot of things in order for them to make a higher profit. And once the purchase is made there is no return, therefore, creating a lot of abandoned puppies. Since puppies are often falsely advertised in pet stores, and after a personal experience, I believe that if you want a dog you should get the dog from the humane society or from the breeder themselves, I highly do not recommend buying pets from pet stores at all. Instead of purchasing pets from pet stores there are several alternatives options to getting a pet such as going to the animal adoption shelter or directly researching and contacting the breeder rather than going through a middle person.
This isn’t the case most of dogs are deemed unadoptable because the lack social skills and forced in surviving on their own. Many of the dogs will never experience the touch of loving human that is there for their car and never feel the warmth of the fire as they chew on a bone. The education of people will give animals a chance to live. Most people look for certain dog breeds when adopting from a shelter which leaves the poor stereotypes of breeds to be euthanized, never given the chance to be a good dog. If people are willing to be educated of breeding demands and the care of dogs this will lower the risk of pets ending up in shelter to be euthanatized.
(Bantwal) It is common for certain drugs to have no effect on animals, but it can be harmful to humans. Although, animals have close to the same bodily functions, it is not accurate to test on animals and expect to have the same results on humans. It is true how people that oppose animal testing say that it can be cruel. Every year, there are five million dogs, cats, rabbits, rats, monkeys, and other animals that are used for tests in the United States. Fifty percent of these animals will die within two to three weeks once the experiments started.
Many individuals have neither the finances nor the experience to care for them properly. It has been estimated that 90 % of wild animals held in captivity are dead within the first two years. If they survive, it is in cramped, inadequate cages and compounds. Every year wild animals held in domestic situations cause injury and death to humans, especially children. When an owner realizes he is unable to care for his wild, exotic pet, options are limited.
Orcas in Captivity Have you ever been to SeaWorld and watched the show they do with the Orcas? I bet you never fully paid attention to how depressed this wonderful animals looks, because you aren't focused on how they feel only how you do. SeaWorld has 23 Orcas placed in three different parks in America. Overall there is 55 known Orcas in captivity in the world, and there is known to 144 Orcas that have been taken from the wild, and most of them are dead now due to being in captivity. Keeping orcas in captivity is bad for health reasons, because it causes stress problems they would never have when living in the wild.
Choosing an Older Dog or a Puppy. Buying a pet dog is a very choosy and difficult experience. The best part of buying or picking out a dog is the fact that the person can choice what type and what age dog they would like. While many people say an old dog can’t be taught new tricks many people would disagree. While puppies are a lot harder to handle at first due to constant care and watching while their still babies, in the long run you hard work will pay off with a very trained and loyal dog.
Americans are spending too much money on their pets. This proves that people care more for their pets than helping people get out of poverty. People treat their pets like if their children and will do whatever they could to see their pets healthy or alive. Pets are just there to keep company to a person who’s lonely. They also help people that are sick or are having emotional problems, and of course they could also be your pet.
Zoos can be used to channel the public eye onto the increasing problems of extinctions of animals, and the entrance fee money that the public pays to them can be put towards building better enclosures for the animals in the zoo. Also, endangered animals that are bred in zoos can be integrated and released into the wild to increase the wild population of those species. However captive breeding can reduce the genetic diversity, as the gene pool is smaller, which may result in less individuals that are able to breed due to a reduction in the fertility. If the genetic diversity gets too low, then it can be irreversible. Also, by zoos drawing the public attention, this can divert people from seeing the real cause of the problem of the endangered species, which may be such as their habitat being destroyed, or an increase of predators in their environments.
Every day in the United States animals are beaten, neglected, and forced to struggle for survival. Left in unsanitary conditions with no food or water, they have little hope as they live out their days without the compassion they deserve. Some are found and rescued, given the chance to experience how great life and humans can be; others are not so lucky. To grow as a nation, we must fight for these abused animal’ rights and severely punish heartless owners. It is up to us to speak for these creatures who lack a voice, for who will if we don’t?
To help put an end to animal cruelty, we first need to know what animal cruelty is exactly. There are two types of animal cruelty. They are passive cruelty and active cruelty. Passive cruelty occurs when owners severely neglect their pets. To the common person, passive cruelty may look like a less serious form of animal cruelty, but that is certainly not the case.
