Focus on Exotic Animals

International Homeless Animals' Day is August 16th. If you're a regular reader of this blog you know that we stand up for all creatures, including exotics. The exotic pet trade has a dark underbelly (no pun intended), so this year for International Homeless Animals' Day, I want us to think about exotic pets and the exotic pet industry.

Saving Lives
Second only to drugs on the black market, the exotic pet trade is a rising concern. Most of the animals transported through the pet trade don’t even survive, and it's no wonder. Take a look at the gristly details below. 

This infographic provides a clear overview of the exotic pet industry and how the business treats the animals before they reach a place where they are available for purchase.
  insidetheExoticPetTrade FINALLL Don’t Shop, Adopt: Inside the Exotic Pet Trade Infographic Created by Havahart

The staggering reality is last year Americans spent $15 billion on exotic animals while nearly three million dogs and cats were euthanized due to overcrowding in animal shelters.

If you choose to adopt a dog, cat, rabbit, hamster, Guinea pig, etc. from a local rescue shelter, you are saving it from near certain death. So if you're interested in adding to your family, please consider a domestic animal versus an exotic one. 

In summary, here's what you can do to halt the exotic animal trade.
1) Don’t shop for exotic animals, instead adopt a dog or cat.
2) Report exotic animal abuse.
3) Support legislation that bans the exotic animal trade.
4) Help spread the word.

(PS: Sorry for the sloppy overlap. I'm not technically equipped (or patient enough) to figure out how to fix that).  

Peace.
