    Every year, over 4 million cats and dogs are euthanized in the United States. What’s frustrating is that the solution to this grim statistic could very well likely cost less than what taxpayers spend on killing these companion animals each year. Fixit Foundation was founded with the mission of ending companion animal overpopulation, and eradicate this pattern of euthanization. It is a charity for animals aimed at healing the illness rather than continuing to treat its symptoms.

    More than 2 billion dollars of taxpayer money is spent each year collecting, housing and ultimately killing 4 million cats and dogs. There are many animal charities devoted to creating a better scenario for these dogs and cats. It seems so obvious that this problem could be easily solved. Why not direct the money spent on sheltering and euthanizing each year towards affordable spay and neuter programs?

    This is the question Fixit Foundation asks. Influencing drastic changes in government funding, however, is not an easy task. Without research and data to prove this would be not only be successful, but cost-effective, the problem will continue to exist. Animal charities will continue to mitigate, but it won’t go away without a significant shift. Fixit Foundation is working to provide the proof, so a true solution can be implemented.

    Fixit Foundation has been conducting controlled research studies on the effectiveness of an incentive-based marketing approach to increasing spaying and neutering of animal and decreasing overpopulation. In addition, they started getyourfix.org which enables direct donations for the spaying or neutering of a specific cat or dog. Pet owners who can’t afford the procedure are linked with people willing to cover the expense. Fixit Foundation is a truly remarkable animal charity giving us hope for the future.

    Charity for animals

    GetYourFix.org allows people in need to make a direct impact on the overpopulation by sponsoring a spay for someone in need.

  • The Inconsistency Of Views Towards Animal Rights

    Comments Off on The Inconsistency Of Views Towards Animal Rights
    November 13, 2015 /  Pets and Animal

    Among other reasons, I became a vegan because I cannot justify needlessly killing an animal. If I needed to kill and eat animals to survive, I would. However, we do no longer need to kill animals to survive. A person can just as easily survive without eating meat, while remaining just as healthy.

    In fact, we have the technology to essentially create meat without killing animals, considering how simple of a substance meat is. We recreate meat in the form of meat substitutes, such as soy burgers.

    Despite their ability to live easily without killing animals for food, many people still choose to eat meat. These people do not grant animals the right to life. If a person murdered another person and then ate that other person, almost all people would adamantly oppose it. Meanwhile, these same people slaughter animals without giving it a second thought.

    It is hard to understand why murdering a human is so objectionable while murdering an animal is not. Most of us vegans and animal rights supporters view that as very inconsistent.

    The inconsistency of people’s views towards animal rights goes further, though. While people carelessly murder animals because they like the taste of meat and the look of leather, these same people fall heads over heels about “cuter” animals. For example, pigs are generally smarter than dogs, but many people object to the idea of needlessly murdering and eating a dog.

    People look at Michael Vick like he is a monster for organizing dog fights, which is utterly hypocritical and inconsistent. Fighting dogs probably do not suffer any more than factory-farmed chickens who are debeaked, stuffed into an over-packed cage, and eventually slaughtered. Why do people think it is fine to make animals suffer for the enjoyment of leather or the taste of a meaty burger, but not for the entertainment of a dog fight?

    Of course, many people have inconsistent views when it even comes to entertainment and animal rights. Having dogs fight or cock fights for entertainment is seen as wrong and often made illegal, but hunting for entertainment is a common pastime.

    Some may try to excuse the inconsistency by saying that killing is not as horrible as making the animal suffer while staying alive. However, there is still more inconsistency here. Why then do they not have a problem with animal testing? Animal testers carelessly torture animals with unsafe and dangerous products to make perfumes and other needless products. If needlessly torturing animals for petty pleasures is so objectionable to these people, it is inconsistent for them to buy beauty products that have been tested on animals.

    Simply put, most people base their views regarding animal rights on emotions rather than on rationality, which results in irrational inconsistencies. Many people do not want to reconsider their inconsistent views regarding animal rights, because that would likely lead to giving up meat, leather, and other animal products.

  • Lap Dogs Common Lap Dog Types

    Comments Off on Lap Dogs Common Lap Dog Types
    November 12, 2015 /  Dogs and Cats

    The lap dog is a type of dog that is so small it can be held in your arms with ease. They are cute dogs that can be carried around like an accessory. They are usually owned by people who like having their pet with them all the time.

    Lap dogs first made their appearance in society among the high class individuals. They were portrayed as gentle companion dogs that kept people amused during leisure time. These laid-back types of dogs simply enjoy to be cuddled and to be played with, but yet again, which dog doesn’t?

    Pug

    The Pug is a very demanding and sensitive lap dog. He needs constant attention and caressing. If you are always busy or simply can’t stand your dog following you everywhere then the Pug is not the dog for you. Also they love sitting on the furniture.

    This type of dog is very sensitive to weather conditions. You should be really careful when taking him out for a walk. Pugs really prefer sitting indoors, where they will try and mark their territory. Overall the cuteness of this dog comes at the price of a stubborn pet.

    Chihuahua

    A dog bread as a companion pet, the Chihuahua is an excellent dog for people who simply want an amusing pet with which they can cuddle up. They love the attention and get great satisfaction from pleasing their owner. They do this by performing tricks or by simply acting silly.

    Ideal for the apartment, these types of dogs will be happy living in a restrained space. But, like all dogs they should get their share of outside time, preferably when it is warm and sunny. If walking him is a bother, they can be trained to use a litter box. All in all, they are excellent lap dogs.

    Pomeranian

    This small fluffy type of dog is amongst the more energetic lap dog breeds. He is eager to learn from his owners and simply attract their attention through all kinds of activities. A key element is to teach him who is the boss. A firm hand is strongly advised.

    Once he is well educated, this type of dog will bring lots of joy in your life. He is a great dog for an apartment and will love to both play and cuddle. It all depends on what you want him to do. Pomeranians are excellent family dogs.

    We just saw that lap dogs are affectionate creatures that love their masters. They will gladly perform any task needed but they will demand lots of care and attention.

  • Winter Hazards for Small Pets – Top Tips!

    Comments Off on Winter Hazards for Small Pets – Top Tips!
    November 11, 2015 /  Pets and Animal

    Many of us enjoy owning small outdoor pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs but do we really know how best to look after them during the winter months? With the recent severe cold snap and sustained freezing temperatures, our furry friends need some extra special care and attention from us to ensure that they stay happy and healthy throughout winter.

    Rabbits, guinea pigs and other small pets are prone to temperature change because of their size and hypothermia can be a problem in freezing conditions.

    Here are six tips to help keep your furry friends warm and safe this winter.
    Place extra amounts of straw in the bedding area in their hutch or cage to keep them warm. Straw bedding is preferable as they dont tend to eat it as much as hay bedding!
    Place an old blanket or piece of carpet over the hutch as this helps to keep the hutch warm but make sure that it doesnt stop the air getting in.
    Check water bottles daily as they will freeze if the temperature is low enough. Consider getting a thermal cover for the water bottle which will help to prevent water icing up.
    When the weather turns icy cold, take your furry friend indoors or move their hutch or cage into a shed or car free garage where it will be warmer than the outdoors. Alternatively, you can use a snuggle safe bed warmer in the bedding area to raise the temperature for your pet.
    If you choose to bring your small pet indoors, keep hutches away from radiators, loud noise and smoky atmospheres.

    Keep your small animals well fed but remember never to give rabbits lettuce as this upsets their digestive system. A well balanced, quality dry food is ideal and will provide all the dietary nutrients that your pet needs.
    When Hypothermia Sets In! Check your small animals regularly for any signs of hypothermia. If you believe that your rabbit or guinea pig is hypothermic, you need to raise the temperature of the hutch by placing a snuggle safe bed warmer close to the animal. The warmer should be wrapped in a towel to avoid getting the animal getting too warm, too quickly. Alternative, you can use a hair dryer on low heat to raise the animals temperature gradually.

    If the animal fails to respond you should immediately call your vet for advice and further treatment.

    What about Pond Fish? Always check on your pond fish in the bad weather. Place a ball in the pond to help prevent it from freezing as this will limit the amount of oxygen in the water. Remove any dead leaves and debris from the pond and keep the filter on.

    Toyota Motor Corporation in 2004 began to develop the system, and to the Japanese market in 2005, only the Prius. Equipped with the Intelligent Parking Assist vehicles are equipped with one vehicle, computers, sensors and turn the rear camera.

    When the driver pulled up to a parallel parking space, vehicles are placed in reverse and intelligent parking assist system is activated. Place the camera in real-time image on the navigation screen in the console center parking lot. The image is superimposed on a box and four arrows. Use the arrow, the driver moved to the available space on the screen by clicking on the box.

  • Animal Or Skin Rugs

    Comments Off on Animal Or Skin Rugs
    November 5, 2015 /  Pets and Animal

    There is nothing like a floor rug made of animal skin to add an exotic outdoor look to your home. Many people find an animal rug in front of a fireplace cozy and even sexy.

    Most animal skins can be used as rugs when properly processed. However their qualities differ from animal to animal. Please make sure that you buy area rugs made of real animal skin from people who have proper licenses to sell them.

    Rugs made from real bear skins can be large, sometimes more than 6 feet in length. You will have the choice of several varieties of bear rugs to choose from including those made from Black, Brown, Grizzly, Kodiak, and even Polar, bears. Color of the rug may not match the bears color as they go through what are called color phases. Black bear skins for instance come in a range of colors from dark brown to blond. Blond colored skins are the most expensive.

    All bear skin rugs tend to be expensive. Make sure that your rug was professionally skinned and tanned. A good bear skin floor rug will have the real bear claws on its hands. Bear rugs need to be properly padded in order to be used.

    Zebra or to give its scientific name Equus Burchelli are not considered endangered though the zebra skin trade is highly regulated. As such as long as the vender has proper licenses you can buy zebra skins legally.

    In addition you should check whether skin has scars or other blemishes. Blemishes will reduce the price. Size on the other hand will increase the price. Some zebra skin area rugs can be almost eight feet in length. Zebra skins need to be backed by heavy felt for protection and beauty.

    Lions skin floor rugs can be more expensive than bear or zebra skins. Lions are an endangered animal and killing them for their skin is not legal. Legally sold lion skin floor rugs are made from lions that have died from natural causes or from confiscated lion skins sold in order to raise funds for conservation. Make sure that seller has proper documents.

    These types of skin rugs are less expensive and more widely available.
    Fake skins are widely available for almost any type of animal. Some fake skins are made from other animals skins, especially from cows. Other fake skins are completely artificial.
