Animals' lives are worth saving

People have been complaining about how animal shelters are putting animals down too quickly. Some say animal shelters are to give animals a happy life. Others say it is too much or a waste of money. Some people simply don’t care. Most people think animals should be nurtured no matter the cost.

I think that animals should have a chance to live. Animals bring joy to people. It’s said that animals bring out the best in a person. People should not put animals down as quickly because they are God’s creation.

I think they should have annual fundraisers to get money for more room and kennels. People should be informed that if they get an animal they have to love it because if they bring it back they could be ending an animal’s life faster. Some shelters could find a foster home for animals. With all these solutions put together, we could make a difference.

In conclusion, I think that animals should have a chance to live. I think you should help the shelters so you can experience the feeling of knowing you might have saved an animal’s life. All over the world, animal abuse is happening, so please take this into consideration. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
