Reflection

In spirit of the end of the end of the school year, as a group we have all done multimedia presentations on No kill shelters, puppy mills, and animal shelters. Julianne has focused on the importance of getting No kill shelters to change their policies based off of their policies now. Crystal goes into depth about why animal testing is harmful. I have decided to do my presentation on puppy mills because they are illegal and harmful to the environment and the animals. We have created videos to help spread awareness about topics that most people don’t know about. The overall goal of our project was to help better educate people on animals that have been abused or abandoned. Based off of our statistics, we can conclude that our project has been kind of successful.

I could say that my project has been pretty successful due to the fact that we have viewers from many different countries. According to our stats we have people viewing our blog/blog posts from the United States, the United Kingdom, the Philippines, Nigeria, and Cameroon. These countries are from different continents and supports the fact that we have been able to reach people from all around the world.

Our petition is also getting a mediocre amount of support. There are other groups with over 1,000 supporters and some with less than 20. Our group has over 140 supports so I would think that it means that our petition is doing fairly well. This means that people are agreeing with our cause and understand the harmful situations that these animals are put in.

In some ways it was also not very successful because on some posts, the only views and likes that we have are from ourselves and supervisor. For example, our average amount of views per day is 4. One view is from our supervisor which means that it is actually 3 and maybe 2 if someone in my group has viewed their own post. On some posts we only get 2 view which is from our supervisor as well. We do get more views than likes which is expected but we aren’t doing as well in the likes sections as we are for our petition.

Most of my evidence supports the fact that we have made an impact on some people and have educated some parts of the world to the cruel animal society. Some evidence points to the fact that we haven’t been too successful but things can always be improved. I think one way that we could have improved our project is by posting on social media more or physically talking to people about it. Technology is great and all but we should utilize all the resources we have.


Puppy Mills Project Pt. 2

It is known at this point that my team and I have been working on our end of year project that helps spread any type of awareness to the public about our chose topics. Our topics are based off of what we have been researching and blogging about thus far.

My topic was on puppy mills and the types of danger they present. I chose this topic because I know people personally who have adopted from a local shelter and bought from a puppy mill. It just kind of horrifies me to see animals that are oppressed in such conditions that often leads to death. The conditions are horrible and would not satisfy the needs of mere humans so why should dogs and other animals have to suffer as well. This topic just spoke to me and it made me realize I want to get the word out there so people will be a little more educated on this subject and be able to identify similar problems in the future.

In my presentation I explain what puppy mills are as a general definition and what laws there are to prevent these. There are laws that protect animals but not a lot that talk about puppy mills. Most puppy mills are regulated by local authorities but nothing that can help save the animals entirely. I also provide an example that defaces puppy mills to a great extent. This place was found recently and had the most gruesome living conditions and the animals that were found wasn’t even in shape to be sold. These profit makers only care about their income and not about the lives of some animals.

The Injustice of Puppy Mills

     This issue is important to me because I love animals a lot. My cousin’s have a dog named Hugo who I love a lot. I think dogs love people unconditionally and are so pure that they don’t deserve to be mistreated. That’s why I want to stop and injustice that faces them because they don’t have their own voice to speak up for themselves, so we should definitely treat them the best that we can and speak out about any issues for them.

    Before starting this project, I knew that adopting animals is much better than buying one. This is because when you buy puppies they are bred in ways that can harm them and are often put in unsafe conditions. Many people don’t know this which is why it is important to speak out about it. I learned that this is true and also that puppy mills but puppies in such small spaces and many puppies even die and get issues such as anxiety after being exposed to such horrible conditions which is very sad.
