Animal Rights and Welfare

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

Animal rights and animal welfare often overlap. Most pet owners are concerned with both the welfare of their pets and providing the type of food, shelter, affection and activity that animals enjoy.

Use your purchasing power to support only pet traders who balance profits with animal care. Don’t be trapped by feeling sorry for the animal and buying him anyway. As soon as you purchase the animals the business owner will be able to acquire another for sale. Use your dollars to vote against large animal trading businesses that do not spend a significant amount of income on animal care. Use your dollars to vote for responsible breeders and to support animal shelters and rescuers also.

Report animals in danger, creating a nuisance, or threatening the well-being of a citizen. You may be concerned that the animal will be locked up – but you may be saving the animal from being hurt badly from other people.

There are so many organizations out there that only care about making the almighty buck. While there is nothing wrong with wanting your business to be profitable, there is something wrong when you do it at the expense of a living creature.

All living creatures deserve respect and humane treatment. If a person or business can not treat their animals as such, then they do not need to be in that kind of business – and as long as people keep supporting them by buying their animals, it will keep them in business. Instead, if you know of a business as such, please report them. They will be investigated, and if found not to be treating their animals humanely, they will be shut down and all of the animals will be taken away and put in good shelters or places where they can go to good homes.

Animal responsibility is everyone’s business. We all need to get involved. Please don’t close your eyes to the inhumane treatment some poor animals are being subjected to day after day. It’s time to make a stand and help protect those who are not able to protect themselves.
