People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously
This shit pisses me off
How could you be so hateful to that poor puppy who loves you
This made me cry. HOW anyone could raise an animal from being a kitten or puppy or whatever, and then just dump them when they’re fully grown…I will never understand.
They are part of your family. They give you their heart and soul and you are their entire universe. They should be YOUR heart and soul. God knows I feel guilty when my cat is left on her own for any longer than a few hours. I miss her like mad. And she misses me, judging by the fuss I get when I walk in the door.
If you don’t love your animal with all your heart, you don’t deserve them. Because they love you fully and unconditionally, and they deserve that same love back from someone who could never even consider abandoning them.
I LOVE animals. I thought long and hard before I got a dog. I knew I didn’t have the space or time for the long walks needed by a large dog so I got a chihuahua. She is amazing and I love her more than anything. I would do anything for her.
A dog can be the best thing that happened to you, just think about it carefully and choose the right breed.
