Animals: Own them or Adopt them?We see a lot of people with dogs, cats and birds. They are beautiful and adorable but come at a obviously hefty cost. We also see so many stray animals ( including old cows and horses) abandoned and taken care by some kind hearted souls and NGOs.
I visited the local zoo recently and saw neat boards saying, this tiger is adopted by MrX, this macaw parrot is adopted by Mrs.Y.
We all love animals, pet owners certainly have every right to own them as long as they are treated well. Can we think of having a pet but adopting them?, like abandoned dogs/cats ( that are groomed and cleared by veterinarians from the animal shelters) or even adopt an animal in the zoo. At least we can help in our own little way to care for these animals. Ultimately, have a pet is to express our love for animals, isn't it?
