Caring for Domestic Animals

In a perfect world, animals would be free to live their lives to the fullest: raising their young, enjoying their native environments and following their natural instincts. However, domesticated dogs and cats cannot survive free in our concrete jungles, so we must take as good care of them as possible. People with the time, money, love and patience to make a lifetime commitment to an animal can make an enormous difference by adopting from shelters or rescuing animals from a perilous life on the street. But it is also important to stop manufacturing pets, thereby perpetuating a class of animals forced to rely on humans to survive.

Dogs Or Chickens

In Thailand, gangs round up wild and pet dogs and smuggle them into Viet Nam. There they force feed them. Then they skin them alive in front of the other dogs awaiting this treatment and boil them in pots. The meat sells for three times pork because superstition claims it cures erectile dysfunction. The process spreads rabies. Westerners hearing this are usually horrified and perhaps may fantasise about skinning the dog killers alive. Yet the westerners hire people to do pretty much the same thing to chickens and think nothing of it.
