Animals are not resources at our disposal, they require our time, love and care. If we are going to share our life with them, we must do so with sensitivity and awareness.
If we learn to interpret the signs with which they communicate their happiness, their preferences and what bothers them, we will easily achieve their physical and emotional well-being.
The healing force of the emotional bond between humans and animals is indisputable, the benefits of living with animals on our mental health and its effects on our quality of life are undeniable.
We claim the right that animals must be part of society and to be morally considered in every decision that affects them, and to move towards normalization, accessing the same places and areas that are available to the rest of the members of the family.
Today's children are tomorrow's future. It is necessary that education in empathy towards animals is part of education and guarantee the achievement of values that promote respect for living beings and the rights of animals.
In the consumer society, the fact that animals become “pets” turn them into become market products that can suffer the uses of the consumer mentality. To reverse this situation, we must redefine our conceptions and relationships with animals based on the recognition that they are living beings.
Animals are sentient beings with specific needs. We must dismantle the idea of their private property and replace it with guardianship and care.
The systematic slaughter of abandoned dogs must be eradicated. No company without an ethical code of conduct based on animal welfare should be authorized to manage the collection of abandoned animals.
The numbers of animal abandonment continue to be very alarming year after year. It is necessary to understand what reasons lead to abandonment, generate a social conscience of rejection, and propose solutions to avoid them, such as preventing impulsive gifts and unwanted litters.
We are irremediably linked to nature and this contact is essential for full psychological and physical development. We must modify the cultural perception that leads us humans to visualize nature as an own resource of unlimited exploitation and take care of it and respect it.
