CURIOUS CASE OF ABANDONED PETS: Keep in mind I’m only limiting my conclusion based on canine #adoption centers and various associations of #animal lovers in my country (Portugal) exclusively. I do not claim the situation is the same in the US, UK or any other country. Now, what I’ve noticed with these centers/shelters/associations for #animals is that many of their dogs are not available for adoption, but only for #sponsorship. It happens usually with the healthiest and nicest dogs that their photos appear in search results, but when you want to find out something about a particular animal wishing to provide it a home, the description says they only allow you to #sponsor the dog (by obliging to pay a monthly or a yearly fee). As a matter of fact, some of them are not even satisfied with a one-time contribution, they insist you leave them your bank account number and make it available and open for regular transactions! There are also curious examples of newborn #puppies for adoption, whereby the Centers claim the dogs were found abandoned in the woods, or God knows where, on top of a bloody mountain. Where am I going with this, you wonder? Well, I live in the capital of a small country, where we have no woods in close proximity :), so if their story is true, it implies someone had found the pups in a rural area, but for some reason decided to take them to Lisbon, rather than to a nearby shelter in a town/village closer to the woods. Example: one of the ads I saw featured a box with five pups, stating they were found next to a trashcan and that they were four months old, born on 16th of August. Ok, so if they were abandoned, how come they knew the exact day the puppies were born? A veterinarian can certainly provide an approximate age assessment for a dog, but he can’t pinpoint to a specific day. May I remind there are also adoption #fees to be paid to these canine centers? It hurts me to say they do not seem to be in alignment with #altruistic motives, as they’d prefer us to believe. IMO, they are breeding dogs and then asking kind-hearted people to adopt them, whilst blaming their abandonment on somebody else, so they could receive #adoptionfees. They are aware that homes for puppies are easily found. But, it is not in their interest to find home for all the dogs, because they’d be left without their jobs! Be cautious of these malicious practices if you are thinking all stray dogs will be saved, if everyone would just take one home. It’s them who are creating #straydogs on purpose (needless to say, people who abandon dogs do exist, too, and they do it for a variety of reasons)...but they’re not as numerous as they’d like us to believe. In fact, did you ever know anyone who abandoned their dog? Because I don’t...not even when they weren’t too fond of their pet, they’d still accept to feed them and take care of their health to some degree, or they’d at least make sure they offer it to a friend or a neighbour, who’d do a better job than they were doing. Another thing: where are the Centers even finding all those adult stray dogs? I don’t remember the last time I’ve seen one, as they’re all micro-chipped, so the owner can be held liable for animal abandonment and asked to pay a monetary fine, if their dog is caught alone, without supervision. Think, people, think! (I’m sure there are some people helping animals wholeheartedly in those pet centers, but many also seem to be #puppymills camouflaging as #shelters). Another shocking truth?
