A major problem facing big cities, and smaller ones, is the large number of animals traveling on the roads with no apparent owner. Among these are stray animals (dogs and cats) and animals whose owners simply left in the street while they are away. How did we get to this serious situation?
The primary cause of abandonment of animals is the wrong decision when their owners decide to have a pet. A puppy or kittens are lovely animals that move us when we see them and take them home immediately. But we ignore the puppy and kittens grow and that grace they had will be transformed. They also overlook that puppies must be trained in the same way we educate our children to behave properly. We need to have adequate income because the animal must be maintained (food and health).
By not weighing these things is that eventually we grt tired of the pet because its no longer funny. If you do not have the capacity to train, the animal will not learn to behave and consequently begin to wreak havoc in the house and have inappropriate behavior. If we do not give adequate food and veterinary care they need, the animal will get sick and we do not want to have a sick animal at home that may be causing disease in the rest of the family. If it’s a female and has puppies, especially in the case of cats, instead of giving them away the owner rather put them in a bag and throw them somewhere far away, to perish.
For those who go through this situation, the best solution and the most comfortable, is to take the dog or cat into the street, other inhumane action we aim for the reasons below. First, a pet doesn’t knows how to provide their own food, is used to get it from its owner. On the other hand, derive from a loving and friendly environment to launch a totally hostile environment in which they must struggle for survival, for which they are unprepared.
The only way around this is to study well the pros and cons before adopting an animal. Be aware that you must educate them so that their behavior is right; you must feed it well and take to the vet to avoid getting sick. And above all you must consider your budget constraints to make sure you can afford owning a pet entails. Animals are living beings who feel and have special needs and within our values should be the respect to it.
Before deciding to take a pet into the street, try to find alternatives as give it to someone who wants it or take it to an animal shelter to find the pet home. Do not abandon him, he does not deserve it.
