Did you know that, in this country, that there are dog pounds that kill strays if they are not claimed after seven days? In fact, one dog is killed every hour by local authorities in this country.
Stray dogs are NOT always pure mean or vicious. Not all of them were abandoned or born as strays; some of them may have just been abused/neglected that no one else knew or cared about and they just ran away. Some of them may have even been bred as companions and they just got lost or stolen and hadn't had chance to bond with their people beforehand.
I used to walk dogs for a shelter. A lot of the ones that I walked there had been strays before coming in and at least some of them were absolutely lovely.
If a stray dog has had a home before, and been socialised and trained properly, there is about as much chance of someone being attacked by that one as there is of them being attacked by any other dog. Stray dogs are still part of the same "man's best friend" species; they just happen to be homeless, that's all.
There has even been at least one case of a stray dog protecting and caring for young kids. Do you really think that such a devoted hero is likely to attack anyone unless provoked?
A lot of people may tell you that, because they are not purebreds, they do not have equal rights. What a total load of nonsense. ANY dog of ANY breed or type can become a stray if, say, the owner dies and no one else who would want them knows about them.
Also, why don't mixed breeds matter as much as purebreds? Surely if you love dogs, that should include them as well? The quality of believing that pedigree dogs are superior to so-called "faulty mongrels" that can actually be just as good-tempered and obedient as any purebred reminds me of the qualities exhibited by the Nazis, i.e their belief that the pure German and Aryan races are superior to all others. Did you also know that the Nazis used to often be hateful to the people who not considered to be "pure" as well?
Stray dogs DO NOT need to be killed. All it would take would be for the UK Government to require everyone except licensed and fully-checked and approved breeders to spay/neuter their dogs and require all authority dog pounds to always at least try to put the dogs in rescue spaces instead of killing them once their seven days in there are up.
Spaying and neutering actually does more good than harm. It can help to prevent the animals in question from getting certain cancers such as that of the uterus and testis, and it can make them live longer.
Thousands of live animals are trafficked daily on Kijiji classifieds worldwide; even by CONVICTED animal abusers! Kijiji has NO POSSIBLE way to pre-screen sellers, nor ensure that buyers are not supporting ill practices.
Ask Kijiji to HALT the sale of live animals on their website, with the exception of valid / confirmed animal rescue organizations.
Kazzy was rescued from the streets of Sun City Center by our Chamber of Commerce Executive Director several months ago. Kazzy was allowed to make our Chamber office her home, complete with her own Cat Condo to sleep in.
She meets and greets our Staff, our Members, our Visitors and our Guests and brings a smile to everyone. Kazzy took on her role as Chamber Mascot with ease, and now our area residents ask for her by name when in our Chamber office.
She has been spayed, is current on all shots and is a very polite, calm and unconditional loving kitty. To remove her from her home and our hearts would be cruel and serve no positive purpose for this community.
Stopping pet overpopulation starts with you!
Spaying or neutering your pet is an important decision for pet owners. As animal lovers who value our pets, it is important to understand the impact of this decision.
The number of homeless animals varies —in some areas there are as many as 300,000 homeless animals euthanized in animal shelters every year. These are not the offspring of homeless "street" animals—these are the puppies and kittens of cherished family pets and even purebreds.
Many people are surprised to learn that nationwide more than 3 million cats and dogs are euthanized in shelters. Spay/neuter is the only permanent, 100-percent effective method of birth control for dogs and cats.
But it's not just the animals who suffer due to our failure to spay and neuter. Capturing, impounding and eventual euthanasia costs taxpayers and private agencies millions of dollars each year, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.
I'm writing this petition against human beings that sexually abuse animals.
How can there be people doing this to our animals? We as human beings have the ability to express ourselves, but our animals dont have a voice.
Everyday more and more websites are created catering for beastiality. Beastiality is wrong and should not be practiced, the animals dont have a choice, they can't tell you they are being abused. They can't express themselves to you in a way that you could possibly understand how they're being used and abused everyday to beasteality.
The people who run those kind of websites should not profit from torturing the animals, and the users viewing the sites should seek help if this is the kind that gets them off. We have the right to say no to any kind of sexual advance, but animals do not, they are at our mercy.
Beastiality is not normal, is not natural, its just wrong, sick and disturbing.
