Pets and Animals in Distress core mission is dedicated to preventing struggling, neglect, abuse, and cruelty to animals, offering referral data to help animals, elevating public spay / neuter instructional consciousness, promoting accountable pet possession, and kindness in direction of all residing things. Since most believe that life within the ‘wild' is the head of existence, even when probably incorrect about how animals are faring in captivity, many aren't prepared to objectively think about the benefits of zoos and pet keeping for animals and folks.
Cruelty to each other, mass extinction, genocide, ethnic cleansing, genetic grooming, we're guilty of all of those, not simply to ourselves, but principally to the animals we encounter, they, in a means, become our observe within the art of cruelty to one another.
Whether or not dogs advanced to eat kibble is irrelevant - they're a product of co-evolution and the higher majority of breeds aren't fitted to life within the wild because of being wholly removed from pure selective stress for innumerable generations, but the identical cannot be said of exotic pets.
Many unique animals, or non-domesticated pets, lack the level of tameness, adaptability to the human life-style, and ensuing simplistic care that many are used to from, say, golden retrievers, but the existence of such 'simpler' pets do not imply other animals cannot be stored at all (or that dog possession is downside-free as well).
They're a prisoner in your house with no freedom (how egocentric we're as a race astounds me) and I totally agree that protecting dogs as pets is as merciless as it will get, they're trapped inside and solely allowed air when they're tied to a rope and you may be bothered to stroll them (simply take a second to think about that)!
