We should have pets because, if a sick person gets to cuddle a pet they start feeling better. Pets have that effect on us. Pets can be playful and they keep you happy. And if you are happy you live longer. Its a true fact. I've seen it. Its all true
Yes, I personally believe every one should be entitled to have pets if they so choose. Pets can make a person feel better when they are down and low. They can be useful and helpful as well. Pets will be there when you need them to and will always stay by your side.
Pets are good because you get more exercise and become more independent and responsible. You become more thoughtful to the world and learn more about the animal that you have. Pets make you happier and more comfortable.I understand that its bad if you buy the animal and you plan on torturing, that's bad
Animals make wonderful companions both inside and outside. They also help maintain order around the house. Dogs bark when strangers approach. Cats eat vermin. Horses can perform heavy labor tasks and keep grass short. In addition to being cute and cuddly, pets help keep the natural order of things around the property.
Hi I am 11 years old, I had a dog that lived till 15 he was the best thing ever! Pets will keep you healthy. A pet can protect your kids, and will teach you and your kids everything you need to know about friendship. And yes I am 11

We most definitely should keep pets because they will keep us fit . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
We should have pets because they make us feel better, and they are adorable little furballs. (If they are dogs). Most kids want pets all their life. They are good companions, although some can be a little bit bratty. People complain about pets hurting their children, but that's only a few pets here and there. Although pets are wonderful, we should only be adopting animals that were MEANT to be pets. (dogs, cats, fish, hamsters, etc.) We should not be adopting wild animals that are nice, but were not MEANT to be pets.
Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes
Until you can use DNA and protein strains to design and build a less intelligent companion for your weak and needy consumption, you should leave animals alone, just as they are. Until you fully understand them, as a hyper advanced god-like creator would, you have no right to mate, train, use, and ultimately abuse animals for your own satisfaction. It aint that animal's job to be your friend, sniff your drugs, or eat that nasty animal byproduct food you feel so good about feeding those underdeveloped lifeforms you cultivate and assign identities to. I just felt like telling someone somewhere after my best friend's girlfriend has decided to de-claw their new kitten. I looked it up, and it turns out that it involves cutting off the cat's first knuckle to prevent the claw from growing back. Just doesn't sit well with me, but who cares? It's just a cat. I'm sure she won't notice when they are gone.
Just because humans have evolved into this awful society, it doesn't mean we should do the same to other animals. It is a selfish thing to do. I am not against adopting, but if you adopt don't breed the poor thing. If we keep breeding dogs and cats more and more animals are going to die because of the animals killed to become pet food.
Most people are very busy and are not able to look after a pet so what benefit does owning a pet have? NONE. 1 in 8 people in Australia live in extreme poverty so I highly doubt that these people will be able to pay for a pet let alone own one!
The idea that anyone ever thought it was okay to keep an animal, morbidly remove its sexuality and ability to live as a fully active being is abominable.
I agree, many dogs are happy. But it makes me sick that we had to remove its sexual organs to do so. This prevents the animal from aging fully, so its brain and hormones never mature. When you 'fix' a dog or a cat, you are essentially removing its animal nature.
If the only way to keep an animal is to butcher it, doesn't that fact answer the question? No, it's not okay to have an animal.
The fact is simply that dogs are too ferocious to keep when we don't cut their balls off.
We all need freedom and want to live our own life.Just to enjoy our life should we steal the freedom of others especially pets???!!!NO ofcourse not.... .Moreover, they are also separated from their family.Just imagine all this situation on yourselves and see what you feel.So according to me,we have no right to steal others freedom.
Some people say that pets are beautiful and that they want one, but are they ready to take care of the pets? Sacrifise their free time for their pet?
Also a pet needs proper care just like a normal human does...Some people dont do that. Believe me, i love pets i had a maltese too, but i couldnt take care of him properly, i didnt spend enough time for him and i ended up selling him to a family i think would take care of him better than i did.
So all i am saying is you should have pets ONLY if you are ready to take care of the pet as if he/she like your own baby...
Also i feel that having pets makes humans superior to the animals. For eg: Just imagine being tied to a leash, having to urinate only when your OWNER says, being shouted at or just because you climbed on your OWNER's sofa. According to me its unfair for the animals and humans can never take care of anyone but their own species...
Lastly, having a pet becomes a huge responsibility for us, its like having a new child.
Just because humans have evolved into this awful society, it doesn't mean we have to do the same to other living beings. It is selfish. I am not against animal sanctuaries and shelters, but purposely breeding animals for money is sick. If you want to have a pet as a companion, adopt it and don't breed it.
We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth. Henry Beston
Do pets really show us affection? Or is it just what we percieve as affection? Keeping pets is a bad use of resources. Pets are costly to keep in time, money and energy. As well as the cost to owners in food, vet’s bills and the time spent cleaning and exercising, the cost to society is very high. Dogs’ mess makes many streets and parks horrible to walk in. Stray dogs and cats breed out of control and have to be dealt with by the state. Bites, scratches and illnesses given by animals take up hospital time and money. And the planet as a whole can’t cope with all the food and energy given to just a few pet species.
First off, I never really agreed with the concept of 'owning' an animal. I hate the fact that people actually decided to start removing our pets' reproductive organs, and declawing and docking their tails. I am friends with a young half-feral cat, Snake, who loves me and the rest of my family, so we love her back. She lives out on our acreage, can come into and out of the cabin at will, and is currently caring for a litter of five kittens. We don't own her, we're just her friends and give her space. We know her mother and father too; they are 100% feral. Raini and Hunter are healthy, happy and strong without any human interference. We wouldn't dream of taming them or removing their reproductive organs for our convenience. They're probably a great deal fitter and healthier than some house-cats anyway.
