"I’m not responsible for some perverted 45 year old dad lusting after me because I have a sparkly dress on and a big ass for a teenager. And if you think I am, then maybe you’re part of the problem."

HAHA OH MY GOD
People need to realize the significance of this post, because when I reblogged it it was just blank so I think some people may not understand what this is trying to say
Adopting an animal (or buying from someone close to you who has recently had puppies, kittens, etc) is not like simply going to the store and buying a toy. You do not just get to throw it away once you are done with it and it stops being cute in your eyes
This is a real living thing that has emotions, needs, and wants, not something to be thrown away when YOU are done after YOU entered at commitment to raise and care for this animal.
What’s just as bad as dumping the animal off just anywhere you want, whether it be on the side of the road or in a shelter, is that a lot of these animals end up dying after that. Animals are NOT always adopted and strays are not always picked up. Animals can get put down, run over, tortured, and a list of other things
People should really think about what they are responsible for before they bring an animal into their life
Not to mention that that animal loves you, you are his world, and when you drop him off at the shelter - or worse, in the street - you are abandoning him. He doesn’t know what he did wrong, he thinks you’ll come back, maybe you just dropped him off for a bit and you’ll come back to him.
Not only did you make a commitment, but that animal loves you and throwing them away isn’t just breaking that commitment, it’s throwing away someone who doesn’t understand why you don’t love him anymore and where you went.
This is so important. Animals are NOT toys you just can’t return them because you got bored. Think first before you buy a cute little puppy for your stupid girlfriend or sister or whatever. Okay. This just make me so mad that I can’t keep talking about it. Seriously you have no heart if you do this. Seriously
this kills me inside
My parents didn’t even grasp this concept. They would constantly just buy or adopt cats, and then after they’d mature, give them back or send them to shelters. My PARENTS. Full grown ADULTS. I’m only 21 and I have been called many things in my life, but I have NEVER been called a bad pet-owner.
You are taking that animal’s life and putting the fate of it IN THE PALM OF YOUR HANDS when you ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY AND WORK THAT GOES INTO CARING FOR THEM. In return they love you and are there for you. They’re going to be your companion for the rest of THEIR LIFE. They know nothing of the world and they sure as hell don’t know you’re going to stop loving them once they reach a certain size. I need to stop because I’m getting so pissed. I was just at a shelter yesterday visiting all these animals because I was interested in volunteering—and I just cried on and off because they were all so fucking precious and they all deserved the best life they could possibly get.
They may only be there for a part of your life, but to them, you’re their whole life. Remember that.
I have spent the last 4 years of my life dedicating all my time to clean up the messes people like this have made. I’ve had countless fosters that have been rehabilitated and adopted, I’ve spent so much time trying to educate people and convince them that if your pet is “bad” is 100% YOUR fault and you need to fix this rather than dump your pet off where it will ultimately die. The sad truth is, your pet will most likely die in the shelter you drop it off at. There are just too many unwanted animals, and yours isn’t any different than the next. Sometimes, they get lucky, but most of the time they do not.
To this day, it completely baffles me how ignorant people can be about the subject.
