Here in the Philippines, there are a lot of pet owners that love their pets as if they are a part of their family. Although we see a lot of people who have pets, we still cannot forget about the other animals who are on the streets without owners. These stray animals have a higher chance of getting abused, being eaten by people, or getting hit by vehicles. The animals in shelters also caught my attention. Yes, they are well fed, they get daily check-ups and have a nice place to sleep in and play, but have you ever thought that they might also feel lonely? That they are hoping to be adopted like their other playmates? That they are wishing that someone will love and care for them? What if your pet is in the same situation as them?
I think people should adopt animals living inside the shelter because not only you can lessen animals who doesn’t have permanent home, but you can also help the shelter to promote adopting. Another fact is that the shelter can help you to choose an animal that fits your personality! And if you can’t afford to adopt, you can donate, volunteer or simply share some of the animal shelters posters/advertisements on social media sites.
