Under the false pretense of conservation, wildlife departments routinely disregard the need to protect all animal life by permitting hunters to kill any animal they define as “pests.”
Dogs, like children, are social beings. They have a deeply ingrained need for contact with human beings and other dogs—to run, explore, and play—none of which they can do on a tether.
They have big hearts, clownish grins, and wildly wagging tails, but pit bulls do pose tough challenges to the humane community. In 2018, nearly half of U.S. pit bulls were homeless.
Many communities address their feral cat problem with dated solutions–only to be disappointed by the same results over and over again. It’s time they realized they don’t have to kill cats to control the feral population.
The benefits to the thousands of homeless pets who are dying for lack of a home each year cannot be overstated. Landlords can make a profitable, life-saving choice by permitting pets.
