Opt to Adopt- An Animal Shelter Video

I just found this pet related video on YouTube … and thought it would be of interest!

In the United States alone, an estimated 6-8 million beautiful animals are placed in animal shelters each years. From that number an estimated 3-4 million animals make it out alive. The rest are euthanized. In the United States and many other areas across the world, we are being faces with massive pet overpopulation. Ignorant and irresponsible owners are not spaying and neutering their animals, and are letting their pets have puppies or kittens. Many times it is because parents want their children to experience the birth of animals. It can feel like a beautiful experience to see a new mother cat gently licking her newborn kittens. The sad thing is, this can actually send a bad image to children. After all, I´ve never seen a case in which these newborn kittens or puppies stay with the family for long. They are all sold or given away. Does this send a good image? No, it tells children that animals are to be used by people and that they can be given away or sold for profit. Think about this: every single kitten or puppy that your pet has, another beautiful life will be euthanized at a shelter. When a breeder or regular person with an intact animal sells the kittens and puppies, they are taking away a home that an animal at an animal shelter may have taken. This is the sad reality of the present world. By creating life, you are also destroying life in the process. What is sickening is when animal shelters are blamed for the problem. No, they are not at fault. The kill

    Aw I’m sorry to hear that :( You can still help by spreading the word about adopting from a shelter :)

    There is such a thing as a no kill shelter you know. There are even places that will foster care the animals until a home can be found.

    Why would you even suggest shooting them? Not only is that horrible, but I would have to say that the people “whining about irresponsible owners” would not want you to shoot them. Where is your basis for saying that? People promoting responsible ownership want to help animals, so your statement makes no sense.

    No kill shelters will often put an animal down too for silly reasons. Even the ASPCA has a blond hair blue eyes mentality.

    sadly there are so many animals that are homeless that cant possibly all fit in shelters. i would support any shelter, kill or no kill, simply becuase of the fact that i understand that at times its better to put an animal down if no where for it to go. I adopted my own little cat from a shelter which does put animals down. Its a kinder fate for them than being out in the street at the mercy of the elements and cruelty. i hope more people elect to adopt animals, they need loving homes.

    you can do something! first, call the white house and get the hsus shut down! ( they have nothing to do with your local shelters, and only have one shelter, of which they have been accused of shooting dogs with guns at) and if you live near a kill shelter or someone who is bad, burn it down or protest. then, wear shirts that voice your opinion. remember, the hsus cant take away your shirt!

    HSUS does a lot of good for animals. I have not heard of that story.

    And why advocate violence/burning down a shelter? Most kill shelters have to kill because they don’t get enough funds. Atleast they are trying. I do not support them, but they are doing the best they can. Blame pet stores and breeders, not the kill animal shelters. If pet overpopulation wasn’t a problem as breeders have made it, then there would be no kill shelters. Go fight against puppy mills.

    hmmmmm, actually, the hsus does NOT have anything other than one shelter. they have no other shelter. BUT, yes, for those maybe 5 animals that they dont give to a local shelter, they do help them. but i suggest doing a youtube search on the truth about hsus. mainly the mv case. and i advocate violence because in illinois, the only way to get everyone to stop chatting on facebook is to burn somethin. and just recently, a pet store was shut down. glad, but the animals were stabbed dead.

    OH, and also wayne p. has said himself on numerous occasions things like this, which i got from the site: ” domestic animals are the outcome of human selective breeding, and me and my organization would not mind to see the extinction of domestic animals”- wayne p., HSUS founder and president. also, i oppose them because they are strongly for bsl against apbts, AND i own a python. and they are trying to get a python ban for the us. and on the site, they lie to everyone ( continued below

    they say that DOGFIGHTING IN SPECIFIC is illegal. now, heres the thing they say: dogfighting is illegal in every us state. well, the truth is that only animal ABUSE is illegal. only 3 states so far have passed actual dogfighting laws. for example, if an officer comes to a dogfight, if there are no visible injuries, the officer can not legally stop the person unless in those 3 states. doesnt matter if dogfighting, only animal abuse. also, if the person never touches the dog while fighting it

    then they can not be arrested for anything unless in those 3 states.

    First off, pythons are part of the exotic pet trade which is a horrible thing if you know behind the scenes of it. And I didn’t say I agreed with everything the HSUS does, but in terms of fighting factory farms and dog fighting, they actually do quite a lot.

    They do a lot for other animals though. I was not just refering to shelters. I don’t agree with everything they do or PETA does. I much prefer the ASPCA and ALF and Born Free USA, but atleast they help educate people. I am aware of many problems with the HSUS, which is why I can only say I support some of their actions. And you can’t fight cruelty with violence, it will only give your cause a bad name. Peaceful approaches have historically been more effective.

    i agree if all you show is violence not only are you doing bad for your own cause (people dont respect violence they cower in front of it) if i stand for something i dont want people to say well i dont think we should do anything because then we’ll be associated with them, thats the reason i didnt say anything about abuse at the horses races because everyone thinks animal activist are too extreeme and it is sad that ppl think you have to attack to get results all i see is ignorance

    Adopt!

    We would have to change the shelters forms/rules, they are way to picky, in my town they made the form longer, repeating questions over again in different ways, its annoying. Almost not worth it, people are turned away by the home visits + other conditions that are required of them to adopt at all.

    Most people cant adopt dogs from shelters cause of all there rules, cant have kids under this age, and whatever else they got and turn alot of people away for silly/stupid to good reasons depending on person. Thats why people shell out more money for a pet store puppy, because all they have to do is heres the money now give me my puppy, plus they can do instalment plans by 50 bucks a month as an example! Or they go other abouts getting a dog outside shelter setting. Which is more of the problem
