How can we help out animals at the shelter?
I believe that any one can help out the animals at the shelter in any way. Anyone can donate, volunteer, and give their time to the animals that need our love. By just giving them a little of our time every day. Going to the shelter and walking the dogs or simply by reading to the cats. I have decided that I should volunteer at the animal shelter because it is a great opportunity for me to get to know how it truly feels to help the ones that need our help the most. I have felt the need for someone to help me out and since I love being with dogs and cats I want to help them out too. By just giving them my time I know that it can be enough my next step is to be able to donate the things the animals need. I have helped them too by adopting one of them.
The animals at the shelter need our help. We can always volunteer at the shelter. Every dog wants to have the privilege of being able to go for a walk. If the shelter has enough volunteers in a day they will be able to walk all of the dogs that are in their kennel. Usually when there are only a few volunteers at the shelter not all the dogs are able to go for a walk. When there aren’t enough volunteers the dogs stay in their kennels until one day there are enough volunteers.
When owners go to the shelter to drop off their pets they don’t think about what will happen to them if they don’t find a home while still in there. When they go, they believe that the dog will be fine at the shelter. They always give an excuse like they don’t have any time for their pets because they work a long shift at work or that they are moving to another place where they cannot bring their pets with along. Another excuse I have heard is that their pet is getting old and that they just want to adopt puppies instead of an older dog. I feel that they just don’t want to be see out for them anymore. I honestly think that there is no reason to adopt a dog or cat if later in the future you will just forget about them and leave them alone when all this time they were there for you.
Owners don’t think that the shelter could possibly be overcrowded only because they think about themselves and that by just returning them or dropping them at the shelter they will be fine. Another thing that bothers the shelter staff is that if you adopted a dog or cat in the first place is because you really loved them the first time you saw them when you walked in the shelter and from that day they were yours. They were by your side since day one that you adopted them and when they need you the most you go ahead and turn your back on them. I have actually seen when the owners come at the shelter with their dog on a leash very excited to see where they took them to and when they arrive they are taken outside to say their good bye and the dog not even knowing that the reason they are there is to stay because the owner could no longer care for them. They see that the person they loved since the day they pick them up walk to the door not knowing that they will not see them ever again.
What I learned after I researched about the animal shelter is that they really do need all the love we can give them. When they are in their kennels they feel lonely because there is no one that can play with them or comfort them. Some people that own dogs or cats don’t think that they have feelings but they are like us. They love us even more than other people. They are always there when you are upset, when you are having a good day or when you need someone to talk to. Our pets are valuable and I personally think we need someone in our lives that will make it better they are not only our pets they are family as well.
