Having pets in the Philippines

Stray cats and dogs are a usual site in a community here in the Philippines, it is not hard for anyone to distinguish if an animal is stray or a pet. If you are to ask me, there must be a stronger bill that should protect pets. Animals should have equal right similar to people. They have life and they are also God’s creation that would need our love and protection.
In our home, we have two cats and five dogs. Our family is very fond of them. We feed them, bathe them, hug them and of course we play with them. Our pets are just inside our house. Though at times they will test your patience but at the end of the day, you’ll surely love them.
Last month, I have watched a news that shows how, bad people do crash videos. I can never imagine, such minors can do such act. Stepping, kicking and killing the poor pets just for fun? How can their conscience bear such act? How can you kill a defenseless animal?
Recently, I talked with one of my college friend, and of course we do chat what are currently doing what keeps me and him busy. I told him I am busy with my work. So I asked him, what keeps him busy. And his answer was he is also busy with his work. And on his spare time, he goes to his friend’s house. So I asked what are you doing in your friend’s house? I was shocked when he told me his friend is raising pit bulls as pets. The dogs are being used for fights. They train them to bite. They close their “pets” on the cage and hit them. When the dog is angry enough, they bite. Then they put the dogs on a dog fight. They bid money. One of the dogs usually die in a dog fight. I was like really? Do these things happen? Why there are people who are happy seeing someone is suffering? As for me, I really cannot bear to see anybody suffering what more dying? It’s really hard for me move on.
We humans should be the steward of our own world. We should love and protect everything included in our world. We are not the boss, we are just included in the creation. Pets should be loved. Pets should be taken care of. Pets should be man’s bestfriend. Pets do appreciate the things we are doing for them, they cannot talk but their service is enough for us to feel their love.
