Animal care homes or shelters are established to care for animals needing special protection, to provide suitable housing conditions to homeless animals or to temporarily provide a shelter for lost animals. They can either be run by the government, or by private organisations.
Animal care homes are good choices for people looking to adopt an animal since they perform a thorough behavioural analysis of each animal to ensure the right fit for each person. Last week I visited an animal care home to look into the process of adopting an animal. The staff who worked at the shelter were extremely knowledgeable and experienced.
They enlightened me about the numerous commercial animal breeding facilities who produce millions of animals for sale in pet stores. These facilities popularly known as puppy and kitten mills repeatedly impregnate animals who are forced to live in cages.
These animals are made to live in unfortunate conditions without human companionship which transforms them into morose creatures. Animal care homes do not condone such practices. Furthermore, animals are given vaccinations on arrival. Thus families are highly encouraged to adopt an animal from trusted animal care homes.

Last week our school organised a visit to an animal care home to educate students about the different needs of animals as well as to encourage them to look into safe animal adoption.
Upon our arrival to the care home, we were welcomed by the chief manager who gave us a tour of the home. He explained to us about the different breeds of animals and how they varied in their nutritional needs, behaviour patterns and different living conditions. We were informed about the benefits of animal adoption through a slide show presentation.
The presentation was extremely informative and covered all the basic things one needed to know about animal adoption. The students were also given an opportunity to personally interact with the animals and feed them. At the end, the students who were interested in adopting an animal were taken to a separate room where they were given pamphlets and adoption resources.
These resources provided all the necessary information ranging from the adoption process to the different breeds of animals best suited for adoption. Because of this visit, five students in our class have managed to successfully provide homes for four healthy animals.

The veterinary science department of our college organised a visit to an animal care home to educate aspiring students about the different methods and practices that go into caring for the animal as well as maintaining their health.
The animal care home included all kinds of domestic animals including birds, rabbits, hamsters but by far the main residents were cats and dogs. The students were able to observe the day to day lives at the home. Care of animals included cleaning cages, providing food and water, along with play and behaviour modification exercises.
Veterinary care dealt with pre and post-op, care of animals, organisation of medicines and supplies and sterilization of equipment. Students were also able to observe the malnutrition and injured animals that had come in off the streets.
The administration of medicines was elaborately explained by the staff doctor. For the entire span of the visit, each student was entrusted with one animal which they had to feed and look after. This not only helped them in the implementation of practical skills but also provided them with a mentally and emotionally fulfilling experience.

As part of the world animal welfare day initiative, my school gave me an opportunity to volunteer at an animal care home. At the animal care home, there were many other volunteers like me who expressed a desire to help care for animals and look after them.
A former worker at a commercial puppy mill gave me a description of the conditions of the mill and how badly they treated animals. Animals are usually crammed into filthy, overcrowded cages and are not provided with healthy food, clean water or basic veterinary care. Mother dogs are bred continuously without rest.
Diseases are left unchecked which contribute to the deteriorating condition of animals. These mills make false claims and deceive their customers who have zero knowledge about where the animals come from or how they are treated. Animal shelters play a vital role in rescuing animals, caring for them and feeding them.
As a part of "stop animal cruelty" program, we were taught how important it is to encourage animal adoption among people. The more animals they adopt, the more room the shelters will have to house helpless animals. We were able to learn the role of animal shelters in our society.
