Some of us have many children. Some of us have many pets. Personally, I have one daughter and many pets. Since my daughter is grown, educated and has thumbs I can rest assured that she is self- sufficient. My pets, on the other hand, cannot drive, cook or even open cans and serve their own meals. They’ve tried but no luck. This worries me deeply.
2020 will be the year that goes down in infamy as the year of the Pandemic. Over 550,000 fellow Americans have lost their lives. The number of losses worldwide are staggering. The debate on how to handle this debacle is ongoing and very complex.
Staying alive is crucial for me since I share space and life with multiple pets that would be difficult or nearly impossible to place in new homes. Some are rescues with idiosyncrasies. Some are just huge and scary. So far, so good. I am fully vaccinated and remain cautious. Business opportunities have been passed by. Fun activities have been also passed by. I owe my beloved pets keeping myself alive.
Surprisingly I am seeing, rather frequently, comments about ” heartless” people who are abandoning their pets by leaving them in shelters. It’s my assumption that the accusers have not bothered to do their homework in a quest to find out why so many pets are being surrendered to shelters. Observing from afar makes you a part of the problem without touching upon solutions.
This is what I have found out about the abandonment of pets so far. Sixty seven (67) percent of American families own dogs. It’s easy to figure out that if 550,000 died due to Coronavirus @ 67% you will have 365,500 dogs that have lost their owners and their security in little over one year. As if this wasn’t enough misery there is the painful reality that 400 Million Americans has lost their homes during this Pandemic. 400,000,000! @ 67% per ownership you will find 26,800,000 pets are also homeless due to their owners and families being homeless. The number of deceased and homeless pet owners adds up to 27,165,500 pets with no place to go within one year. Dead and homeless people do not have many options.
Tossing accusations towards others that cannot defend themselves resolves nothing. Give this some thought and if you really care about pets wellbeing bring one of two home, even if it comes out of your personal food budget. We can all lose a point or two.
Kindness isn’t about discussing others shortcomings. In this sad case, the dead, did not want to die and abandon their beloved pets. The homeless did not chose to become homeless and leave their beloved pets in shelters. True kindness is buckling up and bring one or two pets home. That is doing the right thing. These little souls are scared and need our help today. 27,165,500!!!
UPDATE; I recently found out that some cities within the USA require an additional monthly payment for pets in the household. A friend of mine who lives in Tampa pay an additional $40.00 per month for her cat. That’s an additional $480.00 per year. Add this consideration to people who a losing their homes and need to rent living space. Not not easy, never has been.
