Respect Animals - Feature

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 10, 2013, 11:58 AM
This is a Feature, that really means a lot to me. It is dedicated to all the animals that have to
live in shelter, on the street or in abusive homes. All the photos in this Feature make me feel
sad. Animals do deserve a loving home. They give you so much and they do deserve the same
in return. Humans are animals too. If you treat them bad you will be punished, but hurting and
abandoning animals is okay?
And everybody please don't go to expensive breeders before you went to your local animal shelter.
There are so many lovely animals that are waiting for you. Is it really that important that
a dog or a cat is purebred?
The character is what matters.


If I could see beyond the here and now
If you could hear me calling you somehow
If I could know that love is reaching out
To find you with me tonight

Then hope could make these promises come true
Beyond what I could say, what love can do
With every moment leading me to you tonight

I will stay forever here to wait for your love

-Trading Yesterday-

Please :+fav: this journal. Thanks :heart:

Poor beautiful creatures,its so sad :(
Rubis my labrador, (my DA avatar),me and my boyfriend had adopted her.
We also adopted another dog 1 year ago.
I prefer the adoption than buying them to a pet store..
We saved their life with that option :)

my parents say that our dogs are from a puppy mill.. and they aren't good at all. they say that it was good they got them away from there. we love them so much! haha my dog scarlet is actually next to me now. if you check out my gallery you will see my brother's dog and my dog in some of the photo shoots i had them in. they are the cutest and sweetest dogs ever :heart: i wish that all dogs could be as lucky as them...

i have a purebreed dog from a breeder. not from a "puppy-factory", a real breeder.
but i do feel sorry for all the poor things in the shelters :( in my country it's a really bad situation, because there are too much puppy-factories and a lot of stupid people who shouldn't have dogs or cats or any kind of animals... lot of people still think that a female dog or cat has to have a litter because if it doesn't, it'll be sick...

Well, i still think it is better to go to shelters before you go to a breeder, no matter if it is a "real" one or not.
I got my dog from a shelter and she is lovely :aww:

I guess that almost every country has that problem. There are to many people that buy animals without giving it further thoughts and then abandon them as soon as they get inconvenient :(
At least that isn't the case in my country, but since a lot of people think that they will do sth. bad to their animals if they neuter them, there are a lot of unwanted pregnancies.

well, i know. it was my decision, because i love this breed. but i also looked around at the rescues (i don't know the word in english, when there are a group who rescues one breed), at the moment there wasn't a dog for me.
if anyone asks me where to buy a dog, i tell them to go to a shelter or rescue.
i'm sure i'll have rescued dogs in the future, not just purebreeds. mixdogs are awsome!

I think that is a good way of thinking, i don't really have a problem with people that buy their animals from breeders, i just feel sorry for the lonely ones in the shelters :saddummy:

:iconmatthew-nobody:
matthew-nobody Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013
yes, exactly! :)
i think if somebody has a dream-breed, then he should go to the rescue or to a real breeder. if he just wants a good dog, then he should go to a shelter!
an nobody should go to a puppy mill, these places are horrible :( and the people who just breed without an aim, without pedigree, health tests etc. they just produce poor things who will end up in a shelter, the streets or even worse... :(

I think so too, i got my dog from an animal shelter and she is so adorable. I don't care if she is purebred or has any papers, i just love her.

I wanted to cry after seeing all those photos :(
I never really understood why people want purebred pets.What they look like isn't all that important.I'd rather have a weird looking cat than a pretty but aggressive one.
And that's all that counts :huggle:

Me neither...

In my opinion breeder is a pretty unnecessary job, but i guess that can't be helped.

[link]((stella)%20AND%20(by%3Asagefillyluna))&qo=2

Stella was found in the streets with nothing but a choke collar. She was nearly hit by speeding cars as she tried to cross the street. When my car pulled over to see if she was ok, i opened the door and she jumped in. She was shaking and scared, and wouldn't let anyone touch her.

today, she rests downstairs in a soft warm bed, best friends with my older dog, and lives a happy life. we believe that she ran away from abusive owners because of her initial actions. We always say that she happened to jump into the right car.

this is a beautiful feature :heart:

It is disguting how people abandon their animal in all kind of dangerous places...they deserve better.

i know. I was thrilled to keep her, i even wrote some short stories about what her past could have been like.

we put her through puppy training class, gave her lots of love, and she has a great playmate :D

ahhh ich würde so gerne einen hund oder eine katze aus dem tierheim aufnehmen... :/ aber da muss ich wohl warten bis ich ausziehe... D:
ich hab mal ein paar tage praktikum im tierheim gemacht. die meisten tier dort sind so lieb...nur zum teil sehr verängstigt. wer weiß was sie schon durchmachen mussten... :no:

Ich habe meinen Hund aus dem Tierheim und meine Katze von einem Bauernhof ( der blöde Bauer hätte sie sonst überfahren -.- ) und beide sind total liebenswert. Da ist es mir vollkommen egal wo sie herkommen oder ob es irgendwelche Papiere für sie gibt.
Ja klar, viele von den Tieren mussten schreckliche Sachen mitmachen :tears: Aber wenn man sie aufnimmt und lieb behandelt fassen fast alle wieder Vertrauen.

finds auch schrecklich wenn manche UNBEDINGT einen rassehund wollen. ich mein es ist ja nicht schlimm wenn er einer ist aber es muss doch nicht sein... mit denen hat man doch oft sogar mehr probleme (überzüchtung D: )
jaaa :aww: glaub ich auch :) bei bekannten sind solche tiere sogar am anhänglichsten :iconsocuteplz:

Ja...man sollte auf jedenfall erst ins Hierheim gehen, wenn man dort wirklich nichts findet ( was eigentlich unwahrscheinlich ist ) kann man ja immernoch weiter suchern.
Ich hasse es ins Tierheim zu gehen, weil ich dann am liebsten alle Tiere mitnehmen würde :saddummy:
Das stimmt ! Sie danken es einem :aww:

leider haben die tierheime große problen manche tiere loszuwerden... sie werden ja meistens mit grund abgegeben. manche kampfhund waren wirklich supergefährlich :/ obwohl ich wohl auch aggressiv wäre wenn ich fast den ganzen tag im zwinger hocken müsste :no: die pfleger strengen sich so an aber es ist halt nicht wie ein liebevolles herrchen... :(
ja ich auch :cry: die tiere dort haben immer so traurige augen... bilde ich mir jedenfalls ein :D

Ja das stimmt.
Aber viele der Tiere sind nur wegen den Menschen so geworden.
Auch Kampfhunde wurden von menschen gezüchtet :saddummy:
Aber es ist trotzdem schonmal gut, dass sich die Pfleger um die Tiere kümmern. Immernoch besser als irgendwo auf der Straße zu leben.
Ich verstehe 100% was du meinst. Ich finde auch, dass sie schrecklich traurig aussehen. Ich finde das sieht man auch hier auf den Bildern. :aww:
