An animal shelter is a place where stray, lost, abandoned, or surrendered animals, mostly dogs and cats and sometimes sick or wounded wildlife, are brought. Animal shelters are essential in the United States because of inattentive pet proprietorship and uncontrolled breeding of animals. People often get pets without a full understanding of the time, money, and space that they require. Regrettably, that recurrently results in pets being abandoned or abused by these owners. Apart from accountable breeders, owners should spay or neuter their pets to stop the serious overpopulation problem, which is happening in the United States. Shelters do not treat or stop the problem of unwanted pets but without them the stray pet population would be astronomical. There would be more problems with disease spread and an increased incidence of stray animal-induced injuries. A shelter should also be a domicile where animals could be benign and feel loved and taken care of; not just a drop off. The shelter in my community tries to do their best with their animals, but I feel that the shelter needs to be able to do their jobs better and for the animals to feel comfortable.
Imagine walking into an animal shelter, seeing the dogs and cats locked up behind bars wanting to be adopted. At an animal shelter, homeless animals are continuously looking for a home everywhere. An animal shelter in Ohio is CHA animal shelter, they are a nonprofit organization. They provide temporary care and shelter for cats and dogs and try their best to find them a loving home. Also, they provide surgery to spay or neuter the animal, and give the animal it’s required shots. Adding to, they provide an implanted microchip so the owner can track their animal if it is ever lost. CHA animal shelter has also provided a public website to view pictures of the cats and dogs and a brief background on the animal. They also have an option for donations for emergency situations, food, and supply, etc. The fact that they offer donations is remarkable because some individuals do not want to adopt a pet, but want to be apart of promoting adoption and give support to the organization. Not only does the organization try to make the pet’s life the best at the animal shelter, but CHA also hosts events to get people’s interest and gives the animals time out of the cage. I have adopted a dog from an animal shelter and it has been the best decision ever. Knowing I saved animals live brought more joy and love into my life, and nevertheless, he is the best little jack russel ever. Although I could have got a puppy from Petland, the choice of adopting a dog not only saved me money but also allowed me to save his life as well and improve his quality of life. An individual who adopts a pet is rescuing it from neglect and is giving that precise animal a second chance. In conclusion, I believe that CHA animal shelter is the best place to adopt a pet because it is less expensive than buying an animal from a pet store, it decreases puppy mills, and the individual can pick a dog or cat of any age.
I want to raise awareness of adopting, and the negativities that come with purchasing from a store or a mill over adopting from a shelter or a rescue. What needs to be done, and what the benefits are of doing so.
As a sole proprietor, I will start by having a small number of staff and as the organization grows, I will implement new positions. My goal will be to have Outreach Manager, this manager will focus on developing relationships within other communities where animal care services are limited, this manager will provide clinic services such as spay/neuter to low income pet owners, overall this intake manager is an essential piece to the shelter because it will create a positive impact in our community and will increase the
Many potential adopted parents have experienced heartbreak, anguish and other problems that can be associated with adoption. There is an imbalance in the Nations foster care system and the system needs to be strengthening and the quality of services improved.
At first they would only take out specific breeds, but after the success they had the animal shelter, ask them if they could take other dogs that did not have luck at the shelter. Another thing that Adopt a Rescue Pet does is that they find a foster home for the dogs. The reason they started fostering the dogs is because one day someone came to them while they were at the adoption site and ask them what did they do with the dogs that did not get adopted that they. The responded that they would take them back to the shelter, the lady said “well, if you guys do not mind, I could take one dog home and I would bring it back next week when you guys set up for adoption”, and that’s how they started the fostering program for homeless dogs.
With nearly 3,000 adoptions each year the Longmont Humane Society in Longmont, Colorado is a magnificent animal shelter to adopt from, however, behind the scenes is a completely different story. The Longmont Humane Society has an overwhelming environment, dangerous situations, and emotionally draining events. As a result, this shelter negatively impacts the physical and emotional well-being of it’s employees.
Animal shelters try to find good homes for the animals in their care but not all are successful. Dogs are great family protectors and make excellent companions for the elderly but often do not get a chance to for adoption because the people coming in to the shelter are few and far between. One way to encourage more pet adoptions is to advertise in various ways some of the animals the shelter has that need good homes. Here are a few ideas for ways to increase animal adoptions by raising awareness and educating potential pet owners.
At the Colorado Springs Humane Society, they don't have an adoption application. They have an adoption survey that helps to make sure owners and pets will be an appropriate match. When the survey is completed and approved the adoption proceeds. Depending on the adopted pet there may be medical costs before the pet can be adopted.
To begin, you’ll need to determine which type of adoption you’d like to pursue. Do you want to adopt: an infant or older child; internationally or domestically; through the state foster care system, agency, or privately?
It is never easy to adopt an animal from a shelter. When you walk into an animal shelter, you will see so many animals in need, it is hard to choose a single animal to adopt. It is not only important on how the animal you choose responds to you, but also if you have
CARE South Coast-An all volunteer, no-kill animal shelter in Acushnet, MA. Our physical shelter has cats only, while our dogs can be seen in foster homes by appointment. The better stories are when people are moving to an apartment or across the country and can't take their pet, the better people will bring their cat or kitten to a place like CARE. But even then some people just let them out and leave. And the really sad stories are when they just leave them in a carrier or box on the side of the road. It is so sad to see these poor cats and kittens abandoned because they were once love and now they have no one. But once you adopted one then they just are so much happier. On my board I have some picture of cats before and after adoption.
Well, luckily, there are shelters in different places that help animals that aren’t able to take care of themselves. Did you know that every year 3.3 million dogs and 3.2 million cats enter animal shelters in U.S.? If you think that figure was huge, now imagine around 1.5 million of them are being euthanized every year because the shelter doesn’t have enough money or volunteers (ASPCA) to take care of them. However, this number can be significantly reduced if we start to make a change. With my speech, I would like to persuade you to from now on look for pets in a shelter instead of a pet store. In order to do this, I will provide information about the differences between shelters and pet stores, reasons to adopt a pet, and how to do it.
The main issue in adoption is whether the new or potential family is capable of providing a safe permanent, and secure home for the pet . Most shelters will deny access to the pet if they feel as if the people adopting aren’t capable of giving the pet the perfect life that they deserve. The sad truth of adopting is the pet can can have behavioral problems if they were neglected or abused in their previous homes. It takes a lot but training and
