As is always said " There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.".
Do you ever look at puppies and get emotional to the core?Does your maternal (and paternal) instincts awaken looking at these adorable cuddly babies?Do you ever look at these cute little toy-like creatures and wonder why God didn't give them the love they actually deserve?Did you ever look into their innocent eyes and get pinched thinking of the fact that a lot of these puppies do no have a proper home to live, or proper food to eat??
Everyone loves human babies. And everyone dreams of holding their own baby in their hands some day. Similarly,a lot of people are animal lovers and love them like their babies ,and to be specific,DOG LOVERS. Dogs are miracles with paws. But unfortunately not many are able to do anything for them.
Is it because of lack of initiative,or because of apprehension or just the thought of taking up so much hassle?
I was just going through a community on Orkut about animal lovers in my city.To my utter surprise I saw a lot of people having found stray homeless puppies.They had kept it in their houses and asking people who wished to adopt them.And it was shocking to see that it had been more than three months to the post submitted and not one person contacted to offer adopting the puppy. Is it that people don't login through Orkut (the most popular social networking site in India) often enough to see the post submitted by those people,or is it their lethargy that stops their stiff fingers to type into the post,or is it that they just don't care about pets??If it is the first two ,it is not their fault.But if it is the latter,then the matter needs looking into.
A few months ago I saw this video of puppies in IIM Ahmedabad. The students out there were posting to all different pet forums as possible ,and asking people to adopt pets .They even went to the extreme of vaccinating each one of them and deworming them as well.
In spite of so many people willing to do something for the puppies,Why are so many puppies still homeless?
There can be countless number of reasons but that does not count.What counts is the end ,where
dogs need to be happy. Remember, when aspiring students like you all take a job and are responsible enough for another living being, please take initiative and do something for the pets. Even if due to circumstances you cannot keep pets in your home,at least try in some way or the other to help them.They need our support and they have equal right to live in this world as much as we do.Im truly inspired by the students of IIM Ahmedabad who took care of the puppies and now they have happy homes to live in.
And for the citizens who can afford to keep pets in your house,...Next time you see a stray puppy or a post in your forum ,please take a step from your life and adopt a puppy. I bet no animal owner would have ever regretted keeping a pet at home. They never talk about themselves but listen to you while you talk about yourself, and keep up an appearance of being interested in the conversation.
Have a pet at home and you'll always be happy.Because they always give you unconditional love.And also because you know that the pet is someone who will never leave you till the end.
