Is a very complicated economic principle driven by many factors.

Animal Supply & Demand Industry

Be as it may, the animal industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. Hence, creating a HUGE revenue stream. Granted, it expands jobs, taxes, and more. Now, consider this GIGANTIC pot of money. Indeed, it is spurred by small and large corporate businesses. Speaking of which, this industry encompasses animal product consumerism.

Anyway, do a Google search for just dog food. Definitely, it will make your head spin. Fact, the animal industry contributes to an over-populated animal society. Sadly, its powerful marketing engine influences people to buy more pets and animal products.

Animal Rights & Industry

Albeit, animal activists fight daily for animal rights and reforms. With that said, big business and government do not support animal activists. For the most part, it simply boils down to money, power, and greed.

Ordinarily, this analogy may sound silly. Generally speaking, most people cannot afford pet insurance, inflated vet costs or medication.  At the present time, pet insurance is a privatized industry. Sadly, only the upper middle class or the rich can afford pet insurance. 

Now, imagine a secure family pet HMO or PPO healthcare insurance for dogs and cats. No doubt, other people will demand HMO or PPO insurance for their family pet pigs, ducks, or cows. Comparably, they should have rights too. Given these points, what effect do you think this will have on government and powerful corporations? To sum it up, this law will give way to the rights of animals in slaughterhouses. Ultimately, shouldn’t they have the same rights too?

Slaughterhouses vs Supply & Demand

To emphasize, we live in an over-populated world. Sadly, everyone wants their meat CHEAP and in MASS quantity. With this in mind, people need to cut back on meat. Assuredly, this will in effect reduce meat production.

A point often ignored, people, create pollution, global warming, diseases, GMO production, and animal abuse. Sooner than later, we need to take responsibility for our actions or the world is going to implode.

Who Contributes to the Over-populated Animal Society

  • Big Industry & Government exploiting marketing tactics to influence people to buy pets and animal products.
  • Puppy mills, backyard breeders, hobby breeders, and good ethical breeders.
  • Irresponsible people who do not spay or neuter their pets.
  • Idiots like my brother and his girlfriend. They continue to breed their dogs. (Their dogs are not purebred. They breed for fun.) They are aware of kill shelters.

People Want A Pet Cheap, Cheap, Cheap!

Naturally, people want to buy purebreds cheap. More than likely, you are buying a puppy mill pup or kitten. Ethical breeders can’t compete with puppy mill factories. They are being pushed out of the market. More than likely, you are probably promoting a puppy mill or backyard breeder.  By and large, Puppy mill’s have absolutely NO standards of business conduct. Furthermore, puppy mills inter-breed their animals. Which leads to serious animal defects and diseases. Meanwhile, they are destroying the purebred lineage.

To summarize, purebred DNA can date back to decades with defects. For the most part, you are guaranteed a healthier pet with a mixed breed. It’s no secret, mating siblings and cousins are dangerous. Buster’s Vision promotes pet adoptions from shelters and rescues.

What can you do to help reduce the animal population and save animals?

  • Don't get a pet if you don't have the time and money.
  • Ban Puppy Mills & Backyard Breeders.
  • Adopt
  • Spay and Neuter
  • Go Vegetarian or Vegan
  • Don’t Buy Consumer Goods Made of Animals (Food, Clothing, Shoes, Soap, Make-up, etc.)
  • Shame People for Breeding Their Pets
  • Shame People for NOT spay and neutering their pets.
  • Report People to the Proper Authorities for Animal Abuse
