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
My boyfriends mom did this because it got “too big to handle” and the dog ended up getting hit by a car like a week after she gave it away.. Then a few months later she gets an even bigger puppy that’s going to grow up to be huuuuuge.. Let’s hope she keeps this one I hate people who do this..
this means so much to me because even tho when I got my Baylee she was only a puppy but the original owners no longer wanted her and if I didn’t come along she would of been in a pound. she’s got the face of an angel. I couldn’t imagine what I would so without her. I couldn’t imagine seeing her little face behind bars. Animals have feelings as well it’s like your mother having you and then when your full grown and annoying/ lovable or cuddly like a dog/kitten she just gives you away. you’d be stuck there until someone comes along to love you unconditionally. Animal love is unconditional. yell at them, take away toys, put them outside, they will still look at you with all their love in their eyes no matter what you do. cherish that. NO one will love you as much as a puppy, dog, kitten, cat, bunny, ferret or any other animal will. Trust me. Let them become your Best friend and happiness because they will never leave you.
It’s been such a moving #WSPW14 week, seeing this phrase spread across social media. No one else can play your part. It’s the truth. And I’d love, if y’all are feeling up to it, if everyone who sees this would list 1-3 reasons why in the comments below. Here’s mine… 1. No one else’s heart beats for the reason and the purpose that mine does. My soul is mine alone. 2. There are 7 billion people in the world, but I’m the only one with this special/awesome/unique mixture of my two parents’ DNA. 3. I’m making a difference. And no matter how big or small that difference may turn out to be, to those I’ve touched/helped/connected with/motivated/laughed with/adventured alongside/loved, I mean something. And that matters. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again … you matter because you exist. And don’t you forget it. If you’re struggling, reach out. There are plenty of people waiting to remind you. @TWLOHA #NoOneElse14 - Sophia Bush
