Once an owner doesn’t want a pet they may think they can simply let it loose. Animals left in the street to fend for themselves have a life expectancy of less than a year. They will die of starvation, overexposure, or get hit by a car. Pets are domestic animals; they are used to being taken care of and their survival instincts are poor. On their own, they are totally helpless.Pet owners don’t realize that cats’ and dogs’ survival skills have been dulled considerably by domestication. These animals do not know how to survive in the wild, how to stay alive, where to find food and shelter. It is cruel and inhumane to turn an animal out into the streets.As a consequence, large groups of dogs have been know to form packs and roam underpopulated areas of town. These animals may have rabies in addition to other diseases and fleas. If the animals don’t die, there is a chance that they will reproduce, further adding to the growing homeless animal population.
The truth is that for every ten pets in need of a home, there is only one person willing to adopt. The rest of these animals will be sent to shelters and will ultimately be destroyed. Because of the overcrowding at local shelters, stray animals that are brought in are kept for a maximum of three days. If they are unclaimed by that time they are destroyed.
