Hello! For my digital activism topic, I chose to do animal-shelters and how to prevent shelter animal abuse and negligence. I feel that although this may not deal with humans, animal lives are just as important as their human counterparts. It is a wide misconception that animals do not have their own rights, and I want to address that they do have rights, and they should not be ignored. In relation to my topic, I decided to make a video comparing no-kill shelters and traditional shelters.

My video discusses the pros and cons of both no-kill and traditional shelters, and how shelter animals are affected by how they work. For example, I mention that no-kill shelters are extremely selective when choosing animals to take in, which results in many animals being turned away from a home. I described this to be a major flaw in this type of shelter, and I wanted to compare it to how traditional shelters accept all animals.
