Manufactured…Computers, Toys, Dogs, Furniture, Clothes

Do you see something that doesn’t belong?


Breeders are treating animals like just another item that is manufactured. They are thought of as a “moneymaking machine.” These are LIVING creatures, not plastic, wood, or cotton that we can use to create necessities for us humans. There is no necessity for this. HAVEN’T WE GOT ENOUGH ANIMALS IN NEED OF A HOME?

It always breaks my heart when someone tells me they just got a new puppy or kitten and when I ask “where did you get it?”, their answer is they drove miles to go get it from a breeder. Ahhhh! Why would someone make that choice when there are so many animals sitting in shelters who will most likely be euthanized if no-one adopts them in a certain time period.

Here are some links to some articles discussing this topic:

Breeders vs. Rescues
Buying vs. Adopting

The number of animals euthanized in a day is absolutely mind boggling. As human beings, we are responsible to care for these creatures. How can we support places out only for a profit and ignore
innocent animals waiting for a home?
