Have you ever seen an animal unable to walk because they do not possess the strength to even stand? Have you ever seen an animal’s rib cages sunken in because it’s starving. Sadly hundreds on animals die every day from this disease we call starvation. They do not know what one’s next meal is or where it is coming from, they constantly have to fight and scrounge for one’s food. This is what happens in the wild to our little Mr. Whiskers. This is where the local animal shelter comes in to play, bringing in animals of all sorts and feeding, warming, and housing these poor animals. This community has fought for funding and has paid taxes to get this shelter built; now it is in danger from the lack of food and supplies. We are running out of supplies quicker than we can buy them at the shelter. Do the people have a warm spot for animals? Which is why the shelter asks you to be the heroes to these animals and donate some …show more content…
But with the funding cut we might be forced to shut our doors for good. Some of the animals would go to the county shelters around us, but most would be let back into the environment that they were caught in. That would mean they have the possibility of turning Ferrell, catching diseases and giving those to humans. Rabies is on an all time rise nowadays and is a painful disease to deal with. The last reason for donating is a thing you visit daily . . . home. Imagine living on the street eating others and fighting for that food. Animals are homeless just like homeless people and need a home to be nurtured and prosper in. Giving a homeless man a place to stay can help him get his life on track, Adopting a pet on the other hand can get your life on track and bring you and your family the happiness they deserve. Pets are like the best kind of therapy a person or other anima can have, they even know how you’re feeling and if you’re

Granted, a lot of these animals are born in captivity and wouldn’t be able to survive on their own. That also means that their parents were taken out of the wild and put into captivity, or that they are breeding these animals. Which is also a very bad thing for these poor animals. “For starters, Hanna said that "98 percent" of animals kept at more than 200 zoos across the United States were born in captivity and would find it impossible to live on their own. "They don't come from the wild," Hanna said.” (Milian
Every dog is unique regardless their background, but shelter dogs are much more appreciative when given a second chance at a forever home. They have lived through good and bad times, trusted and loved people who have miserably failed them. They have endured a stay in a dirty overcrowded shelter where fear, sickness, and death permeates the air and human contact is brief and limited to cage cleanings, feedings, and the occasional visiting public. They know the feeling of being invisible to people who walk by their cages without acknowledging the barking, whining or pawing at the gate in an effort for attention. They understand that once the visitor has passed another opportunity for a good home, love and affection has also gone by. Theirs
I am a certified volunteer for the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control (the “Animal Shelter”). The primary role and responsibility of an Animal Shelter volunteer is to assist animal control officers with the handling and presenting of shelter animals to the general public for potential adoption. The time I’ve spent at the Animal Shelter has been extremely rewarding, so much so that I feel it is a privilege to “work” for the Animal Shelter. I am fortunate to be able to help and comfort animals looking for a human and interact with people looking for a new family member.
(Charity Navigator, 2015, Charity rating) These numbers are a far cry from what Mr. Bergh told the Governor of New York when he paid a visit to the ASPCA and he stumbled over a hole in the old, tattered carpet and told Mr. Bergh to buy better carpet and send him the bill, Mr. Bergh simply replied, “No, thank you, Governor. But send me the money, and I will put it to better use for the animals. (as cited in Winograd, 2012, ¶3)” Moreover, for the last 15 years, the shelters, rescue groups, feral cat caretakers and No Kill proponents who have tried to restore Bergh’s vision through the No Kill revolution have been opposed by those like past ASPCA CEO Ed Sayres, supported by a Board of Directors content to count the money, all of whom appear intent on squandering Bergh’s noble legacy. When we look back on Mr. Berg’s life’s mission and what he wanted to accomplish and then look at the ASPCA today, one must wonder what happened? While it is not an easy task to undertake, we will take a look at animal “shelter”
Anyone who is capable and willing can make donations to Peaceful Pets at the facility or at one of our monthly adoptions. All donations go towards bedding and food for the animals as wells as the cost to have them spayed and neutered. Monthly adoptions are held on the second Saturday of every month and are held at our facility, these adoptions will allow our program to bring in more pets since people will be adopting. At the adoptions, the Peaceful Paws volunteers sell baked goods and other things such as treats, collars, and tags as a way to raise money for the upkeep of the facility. Anyone in the community who is over the age of sixteen and has a love for animals can volunteer at Peaceful Paws. We highly recommend those who are in school for any type of Veterinarian Medicine or Zoology degree to volunteer since it is a great glimpse into what they may be doing in the future. When the volunteers graduate from college having the Peaceful Paws program on their resume can help them get good
ASPCA helps because animals are homeless and have no food. The way they help is by going out in the city and looking for animals (cats, dogs) that have no home. There basically doctors because like if they find a animal with no legs they give them a wheelchair type. One time I was looking at a story on TV and animal had ran away and the woman had
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.
For my Civic Responsibility Project, I chose to volunteer at Paws Humane, a non-profit organization in Columbus that provides shelter for homeless pets and aides in placing them with a fit owner. Paws rescues captured strays from Animal Control and accepts owner-surrendered animals. The accepted animals range from dogs and cats of all ages to small critters, such as rabbits. Paws has a no-kill policy, so the animals not adopted remain at the shelter until they finally find a home. Unfortunately, some animals remain at the shelter longer than others; some have been at the shelter 300+ days. Paws does not only adopt out animals though; they operate a clinic next door that offers affordable spay and neutering. These surgeries are an important
Woohoo! I won a cash prize from the lottery, hmm, but I have to donate half to a good cause. I will donate half to the SPCA. An organization that is dedicated to saving abandoned animals, dogs in particular. I would donate half of this money to the SPCA because…

Many people enjoy companionship with their animals; however, according to the American Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), “every 60 seconds, another animal is abused.” Animals are often neglected in ways such as improper feeding, dog fighting, cockfighting, and being bred in puppy mills. In order to end animal abuse, people need to be enlightened about the multiple ways animals can be abused. Awareness of activities surrounding animal abuse will help decreases animal abuse. Education is of utmost importance in preventing animal abuse.
In order to use my passion of animals to help, I want to volunteer at friendship pet pantry, anti cruelty society and write a blog informing the public about pit bulls. I can help friendship pet pantry by collecting donations in a donation bin. I will be in charge of 2 business and will have the responsibility of checking in with them, 3-4 times during this project session. I can help anti cruelty society by donating money They need more pet food, and cat food of a certain brand. In the donation boxes, they don’t always get what they need though. This way, I think I can give them what they need. I will have a bake sale, in order to earn this money. Writing the blog can help pit bulls. Many home insurance companies will not insure your house
A lot of animals go into the shelters each year. For example, in the article, “11 Facts About Animal Homelessness,” from www.dosomething.org, it states, “Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide
The way I have helped my community is by volunteering for Friends of Coos County Animal Shelter (FOCCAS). Their mission statement is: “Friends of Coos County Animals, Inc. is organized exclusively for charitable purposes, and specifically to support and enhance services for the Coos County Animal Shelter including organizations and causes that promote animal welfare” (Friends of Coos County Animal Shelter). While I was volunteering for this organization I helped out at their booth in the mall, where they try to find these animals homes.
Logos. Facts. Adopting. It means saving one of the more than six million cats, dogs, or countless other animals who enter U.S. animal shelters EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Adopting is never buying any type of animal. What’s the difference between a pet store and an animal shelter? This is one of the most asked questions over this topic. And the answer? Profit. Pet stores. Pet stores sell animals only for the money or profit they can get off that animal. Animal shelters are there to save lives. Get an animal off the street. Animal shelters take unwanted, stray, or abandoned animals. Now you may be thinking about an adoption fee. Wouldn't that basically count as buying? Absolutely not. Shelters use the adoption fee so they can get more positive things for the animals. Food, medicine, spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping, and other important things for your new companion needs. In other words, your money is going to help animals. Still not convinced adopting is better? Let’s take a look at some examples.
