Responsible Animal Guardianship
by Payeton, 2nd Place Junior Winner of the Kind Matters 2019 Writing Competition
Pets, toys? No, pets are way more than that and often people mistreat and neglect their pets. People buy them when they are cute and tiny and it soon fades. You need to keep your pets safe, you need to feed your pets, if they are sick you need to keep them warm and take them to the vet.
Animals are not toys! They feel happy, they feel hunger, they feel sad, they feel pain, they feel fear. They are so loyal, all they depend on is the humans they love so much!!!
You hit them, hurt them, you leave them out in the snow. No matter what you do to them, they will always love you - unconditional love. So we need to protect our pets, we need to be their voice and protect and care for them. No matter the cost. They are the gift that keeps on giving. This world would be a better place if we all cared for our animals as much as they care for us - be the person your dog thinks you are, see it through their eyes and give them the love they deserve.
"I can't speak for myself, you are my voice."
