Their waiting. So adopt a pet today and make a difference!
There are so many homeless animals that need to be adopted everyday.
And if you cannot adopt a pet at this time or the chances are slim in ever adopting one. Then advertise on your website if you have one like seen here. Sometimes getting the word out can be just as helpful and could very well change someone's mind in a heartbeat.
Sometimes dssd sdsHow many homeless animals are there in the world?
Way too many to count. I would have to say at least 1,000,000
in the United States ALONE.
70,000 puppies and kittens are born every day in the U.S.
Between 4 million and 6 million pets are euthanized every year because they are homeless. That means between 11,000 and 16,000 pets are euthanized every day simply because they are homeless. An animal in a shelter is killed every 1.5 seconds.
Each year, in the United States an estimated 27 million cats and dogs are born. Between 5 and 8 million are euthanized because homes are unable to be found for them. Hundreds of thousands of healthy dogs and cats are killed each month for many reasons, including commercial and backyard breeding and the sale of animals in "pet" stores, all of which are preventable. The answer to this huge problem is simple: reduce the number of animals coming into this world. The routine procedure of spaying and neutering dogs and cats would result in fewer unwanted animals, thus reducing or eliminating the heartbreaking process of euthanizing innocent animals left in our overcrowded shelters. Irresponsible guardians, pet shops, puppy mills, and commercial and "backyard" breeders share responsibility for this epidemic. Just one litter of puppies or kittens can be responsible for reproducing thousands more in just a few years.
If you can't adopt right now because you are financially unable to. Then your voice can be just as helpful as well as a powerful tool to help spread the word that our furry little friends are always looking for good homes, (safe haven). If they could speak, they would probably already have a home by now. And if you are able to adopt, but just don't have the time to invest. Then please give what you can to any local animal shelter. Also most animal shelters are always looking for extra blankets especially during the colder months and any donations in the form of food is always appreciated. However, most places prefer dry food over can food. Why you say? Huh, good question. So why don't you ask them that question yourself. Thank you and have a great day! The management team.
If you suspect that an animal has been abused, by someone you know or by a stranger, there are things you can do. The most important act you can take is to report the cruelty to your local law enforcement. In some cities, this may be animal control or a department of Humane Law Enforcement, while in other areas the police or sheriffs department may be the agency in charge of these sorts of crimes.
If you are unsure of who to contact, try your local yellow pages, or you can use the ASPCA's Humane Law Enforcement Lookup page to locate the agency in your area. You can also check the front section of your telephone yellow pages and search for Animal Control.
Some areas (especially more rural parts of the country) may not have a designated Animal Control Department, in which case there may be a an branch of a local humane society that has been assigned the power to investigate cruelty cases. If your city does not have an animal control or humane law enforcement department, cruelty cases may fall under the jurisdiction of the sheriff's department or local police.
If you witness animal cruelty in progress and do not know the number to the appropriate agency, CALL 911. Animal cruelty is a CRIME, and the police dispatcher will be able to determine which department should respond.
Repeat offenses of animal cruelty crimes are a rule, not an exception - and there are many times when an investigation into an animal cruelty crime uncovers human-related crimes as well. When officers go to the home to investigate an animal cruelty issues, they often find evidence of domestic abuse, child neglect, drugs and other dangerous situations. Reporting animal cruelty could save a human life.
When a violent crime is committed against anyone you love, there is always a flood of emotions: anger, outrage, hurt, worry, helplessness... Your pets are no exception, and when someone deliberately causes them harm, the reaction isn't much different than if they had attacked a human family member. The fact is, there are some things you can do. Animal abuse is a crime, and depending on where you live, it can be a pretty serious one.
Do NOT attempt to deal with the crime yourself. The authorities are there to help you, and the sooner they are involved, the better.
