Prevent Cruelty To Dogs
The ASPCA declares April to be Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals Month, a time for us to put an end to abused animals - both mentally and physically.
Our four-legged friends are always there for us, as pet owners; so why would we want to cause them pain? Now is the time to get involved in advocacy work including:
- Help prevent animal neglect
- Foster abandoned pets
- Petition against No-Kill animal shelters
- Adopt a humane society dog or cat
Taking home new pets is challenging for both pet owner and animal. The dog or cat will need to walk around the house to learn the new environment. As a responsible pet owner, it's best to keep an eye on pets, teach them right from wrong, feed them nutritious foods, and play with them on a daily basis.
Pet owners may decide to keep dogs outside while they work or tend to small children; and this is fine as long as the dog is surrounded behind a dog fence. EasyPetFence.com asks that pet owners say 'no' to wireless dog fences and chain-link fences that will hurt dogs. Although affordable, chain-link fence for dogs corrode and will hurt the dog's teeth. But, electric dog fences are the worst for protecting dogs in the yard. These wireless dog fences work by using shock collars and sending a small jolt to dogs. Why hurt the dog to teach them not to leave the premises?
This April, consider humane pet fencing solutions for the backyard; and prevent the mistreatment of animals! #PreventCrueltyToAnimals.
