Puppy mills over crowding has become a problem for many years. “Common problems for puppy mills are epilepsy, heart disease, and deafness, some puppies also suffer form fleas, mange, and ticks.” Animals tend to be treated conditions are over crowed and unsanitary conditions. For the ASPCA’S around the world to maximize their profits female dog are breed at anytime of opportunity with little to no recovery between litters, and after years they female dogs become physically depleted to the point where they can no longer reproduce, must breeding females are often killed. Their are many shapes and forms of animal cruelty sometimes its easily notice others its not.
Pit bull fight, a cruel sport to end the lives of many lives of pit bulls and many other breeds of dogs. “ Pit bulls often attract the worst kind of dog owners- people who are only interested in these dogs for fighting or protection. While pit bulls were once considered especially non-aggressive to people, there reputation has changed, thanks to unscrupulous breeders and irresponsible owners.” “The pit bull population has increased so rapidly, shelters now struggle to deal with an overflow of image-plagued, hard-to-place dogs.” The history of pit bulls is that “ pit bulls are descendants of the original English bull-baiting dog-a dog that was bred to bite and hold bulls, bears and other large animals around the face and head.” In the fighting ring pit bulls fight to the death or tell one of the dogs is hurt badly, and although it’s a felony offense in all fifty states urban areas is where most pit bull fighting still takes place. “Many people who participate is dog fighting have a lack even a semblance of respect for animals and often beat and starving there dog to encourage is aggressive behavior.” Dog fighting isn’t the right way to go, there is also puppy mills.
Animal Hoarding is a big deal, and needs to be put to rest. “Animal hoarding is a complex and intricate public health and community issue. It effects are far-reaching and encompass mental health, animal welfare and public safety concerns.” The criteria that is used to define animal hoarding “ more then typical number of companion animals, inability to provide even minimal standards of nutrition.” It’s not clearly certain why people hoard animals, study say that hoard is believed to be caused by personality disorders, paranoia, delusional thinking, depression, and other mental illnesses. Hoarders think of themselves as “rescuers” that save animal from the street. Animal hoarder come in many different styles, ages, and race. “Animal hoarding is covered implicitly under every state’s animal cruelty statute, which typically requires caretakers to provide sufficient food and water, veterinary care and a sanitary environment. Only two states, Illinois and Hawaii, currently have statutory language specifically addressing animal hoarding.” Illinois act was created in 2001 and Hawaii’s in 2008, Hawaii is the only state that specifically is outlawing animal hoarding. Although animal hoarding is a problem, so is dog fighting.
