Animal Welfare

Many people love animals. They have pets by buying animals from petshop, getting from family or friends as gift, adopting animals from shelters or simply taking the animals from the road. Do they love animals indeed?

Yes or no….

Owning animals is not number one indicator of loving animals. The main indicator is how they treat the animals. So, after they bring the animals home, what will they do? Just putting them outside the home since they are just animals? Or, they let those animals stay inside the home as family?

More than that: do they provide good and healthful food for the animals or just throw rubbish to the animals?

Do they give good health service to the animals? Vaccine, neuter, deworm, shampooing or bathing, teeth cleaning, etc…. Please care about it.

Do they let the animals suffer from anything uncomfortable? Give them good place to sleep on. Spare them enough space. Do you know that in many petshops animals are kept in very small cages that make them go crazy. Please know this, consider this. Be loving to your pets…. Even to any animals.

Do they let those animals be animals? What is letting animals be animals? It is simply not putting clothes to them. Some people think dressing their pets is upgrading the dignity of those animals? No, it is downgrade their dignity, friends. And, at the same time making the animals into inconvenient situation: they feel hot especially animals in tropical climate. So, do you still want to keep the cats and dogs or rabbits etc in your stupidly-chosen clothes? Please stop entertainig yourselves by forcing human’s culture to animals.

This is a whining of today…. I’m grumbling because I think I haven’t done enough to animals for their welfare. Not only me, but many people are so ignorant to animals just because they are animals.

So, let’s change our mindset. Animals are our fellow creatures who logically only lacks ability to anallyse, who physically aren’t developed like us, who genetically outnumber in DNA. So, basically we have many same components making them deserve to be treated justly, well and with love and care.

Time to realize what we can fix. Love them. Please stop being violent to them. Show that we are the caretaker of this universe by respecting our fellow creatures.

If you really hate animals, no need to express your hatred. Please just halt and don’t do harm to them.

Oh, how tiring it is to see that this earth is full of people treating animals badly.

  1. If we compare our DNA with a dog DNA, we’ll find out that only 10% of the whole DNA is different; less difference in primates. That’s a good enough reason not to be cruel to them, I think.
