Having To Abandon An Animal Is A Decision That Is ..

 




Having to abandon an animal is a decision that is often traumatic to the owner and the pet, but is avoidable in most cases. While pet abandonment is somewhat indefensible and can be difficult to understand, there are a number of reasons that are reported by individuals who relinquish their pets, as the cause for their abandonment. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the common reasons why people abandon their dogs.

必须舍弃动物是一个决定,通常会对主人和宠物造成伤害,但在大多数情况下是可以避免的。 虽然宠物遗弃在某种程度上是无法辩驳的,并且可能难以理解,但由于宠物被遗弃的原因,个人报导了许多原因。 在本文中,我们将讨论人们弃狗的一些常见原因。

1. Dog’s Behavioral Problems / 狗行为的问题

Behavioral problems are among the most common reasons why owners abandon their dogs. In a peer-reviewed article (PDF) entitled “Owner Attachment and Problem Behaviors Related to Relinquishment and Training Techniques of Dogs“, scientific researchers at the University of California’s School of Veterinary Medicine found that 65% of people who relinquish their dogs report some kind of behavioral problem as the main reason for abandonment.

行为问题是主人弃狗的最常见原因之一。 在题为“与狗的放弃和训练技术有关的主人依恋和问题行为”的同行评审文章中,加利福尼亚大学兽医学院的科学研究人员发现,有65%的放弃狗的人报告某种 行为问题成为放弃的主要原因。

These canine behavior issues can range from dangerous biting and aggression, to less troubling and easily fixable issues such as pets having bathroom accidents, being destructive, barking or crying too much, or not getting along with other animals. Most, if not all, reported behavioral problems are normal dog behaviors that can be corrected if the owner is dedicated to learning about how to (re)train their pooch and how to appropriately fix the issue, and willing to commit to the amount of time that it can take to work patiently. However, a number of pet owners will not have these requirements.

这些犬类行为问题的范围从危险的咬伤和侵略,到麻烦程度较小且易于修复的问题,例如宠物发生浴室事故,破坏性动物,吠叫或哭泣过多或与其他动物不相处。 大多数(如果不是全部)报告的行为问题是正常的狗行为,如果主人致力于学习如何(重新)训练他们的狗狗以及如何适当地解决问题,并愿意付出一定的时间,可以纠正该行为。 需要耐心地工作。 但是,许多宠物主人将没有这些要求。

2. Moving / 搬迁

Many dog owners have reported that moving to a different place was their reason for abandoning their pets. However, as pet expert Lisa To well wrote in her article for peta.org, Why People Abandon Animals, research has shown that more than half of the individuals who claim that a move is the reason for abandoning their pet also report behavioral problems at the same time, revealing that the move may be only a secondary issue to the primary behavioral problem, forcing them to abandon dogs.

许多养狗人报告说,搬到另一个地方是他们放弃宠物的原因。 但是,正如宠物专家Lisa To在其peta.org上的文章《为什么人们放弃动物》中所写的那样,研究表明,超过一半的声称搬家是放弃宠物的原因的个体也报告了行为问题。 同时,这表明举动可能只是主要行为问题的次要问题,迫使他们放弃了狗。

3. New Landlord Won’t Allow Pets / 新房东不允许带宠物

Along the lines of moving frequently being a reason for pet abandonment, it should be common sense that individuals who rent instead of own a home or apartment must be aware of the fact that many landlords do not allow pets, and consider this fact before adopting a pet. In cases when pet owners do not plan well and adopt a dog without checking with the landlord, once found out, they’re forced to give their pet up.

经常搬家是宠物被遗弃的原因,常识是,租房的人而不是自己拥有房屋或公寓,必须意识到许多房东不允许宠物的事实,并在采纳宠物之前考虑这一事实。 宠物。 一旦发现宠物主人没有很好的计划并在没有与房东确认的情况下收养狗,一旦发现,他们将被迫放弃宠物。

4. Owner No Longer Has Time for Pets / 主人不再有时间养宠物

Dog Abandoned Because Owner No Longer Has Time for PetsIf a person does not have a lot of free time, and/or does not wish to dedicate a large majority of it to care for a pet, that person should not adopt an animal. Pets who are frequently left alone at home often become depressed and destructive, causing a pet owner to relinquish the pet.

因主人不再有宠物而被遗弃的狗如果一个人没有太多的闲暇时间,并且/或者不希望将其大部分时间用于照顾宠物,则该人不应收养动物。 经常独自待在家里的宠物经常会变得沮丧和破坏性,导致宠物主人放弃宠物。

5. Dog’s Illness / 狗的疾病

Whether this is because the pet owner does not have the money, or the time to take care of their dog that has fallen ill, or simply stopped caring enough about their family friend, Michelson Found Animals Foundation, run by one of our regular podcast guests, reports that illness as a common reason that owners abandon their dogs at a time in which their pets need them the most.

无论是因为宠物主人没有钱,还是因为有时间照顾生病的狗,或者只是停止对家人朋友的关心,由我们的一位常规播客来管理的迈克尔逊发现动物基金会(Michelson Found Animals Foundation)报告说,疾病是主人在宠物最需要它们的时候抛弃狗的普遍原因。

6. Age of the Dog / 狗的年龄

Older dogs are abandoned more often than young puppies, because they are no longer active and enjoyable for the owner to be around, or because the cost of taking care of an aging dog has gotten out of hand. Either way, abandoning a pet because of old age is devastating to the animal. It’s important for owners to remember that aging pets deserve a loving home in which to live out their final days just as much as aging humans do.

年长的狗比年幼的狗被遗弃的频率更高,这是因为它们不再活跃,主人无法乐在其中,或者是因为照顾年老的狗的费用已经失控。 无论哪种方式,由于年老而遗弃宠物都会对动物造成害伤。 重要的是,主人要记住,衰老的宠物值得拥有一个充满爱心的家,在这里,人们可以像衰老的人类一样度过最后的日子。

7. Owner’s Death or Illness / 主人的离世或疾病

Sad German Shepherd Dog Grieving Owner’s Death To prevent pets from being abandoned for this reason, pet owners, especially older and/or chronically ill ones, should have a plan (in writing) that states who should take care of their dog(s) in the case that the owner dies or becomes too ill to care for the pet.

伤心的德国牧羊犬伤心的主人的死亡为了防止宠物因这个原因而被遗弃,宠物主人,尤其是年长和/或患有慢性病的宠物的主人,应有一个计划(书面形式),规定应当照料狗只。 主人死亡或病得无法照顾宠物的情况。

If an individual has chronic and persistent physical or mental health issues that cause frequent stays in hospitals, it’s best not to adopt an animal, unless there’s someone else to care for them.

如果一个人患有慢性和持续性的身体或精神健康问题,导致他们经常住院,那么最好不要养动物,除非有人照顾他们。

8. (Increased) Cost of Maintenance / (增加)照顧成本

Dog ownership can be very costly, and thus it’s essential to plan ahead of time. Responsible pet owners must always calculate the price of high-quality dog food, dog toys, healthcare, and other costs of having and caring for pets, into their budget long-term budget plan. Owners who do not do this, or pet owners who have lost their job and/or have a lot of debt, have been known to abandon dogs for this very reason.

狗的照料费用可能会非常昂贵,因此提前计划是必不可少的。 负责任的宠物主人必须始终将优质狗食,狗玩具,医疗保健的价格以及拥有和照顾宠物的其他费用计入他们的预算长期预算计划。 众所周知,不这样做的主人或失去工作和/或背负很多债务的宠物主人会因此而放弃狗。

9. No Longer Profitable / 不再盈利

This reason is far more rare simply because there are significantly less “pet owners” who are making profit off of their dogs. So whether an individual was making money off of an animal by breeding it, fighting it, or racing it, when the pet is no longer able to make money for that individual who is inhumanely using the dog to do so, the irresponsible pet owner will often abandon the pet or put the dog down.

仅仅因为很少有“宠物主人”从狗中牟利,这个原因就更加罕见了。 因此,无论个人是通过繁殖,与动物作斗争还是通过比赛从动物身上赚钱,当宠物不再能够为不人道地使用狗来赚钱的那个人赚钱时,不负责任的宠物主人就会 经常抛弃宠物或放下狗。

10. Birth of a Child / 孩子的出生

Dog Abandoned Due to Upcoming Birth of a Child Anyone who is planning on having children soon should consider opting out of getting a pet at that time. Even though there are ways to introduce a dog to newborns, generally, raising a child is much more time consuming and stressful than many people understand. Having a pet takes a lot of time and dedication, and new parents of children frequently abandon their dogs after having a child.

由于即将出生的孩子而被遗弃的狗任何打算很快生孩子的人都应考虑在那时选择不养宠物。 尽管有很多方法可以将狗介绍给新生儿,但通常来说,抚养孩子比许多人理解的要耗费更多时间和压力。 养宠物要花费大量时间和奉献精神,孩子的新父母在生完孩子后经常会放弃狗。

Research has revealed poor planning and poor decision making among people as a key factor in this reason for pet abandonment. At least 1/3 of dogs that were abandoned because of a woman being pregnant were adopted when the family already knew that the woman was pregnant. Read more about this in the following evidence-based book, The Psychology of the Human Animal Bond.

研究表明,不良的计划和不良的决策是造成宠物被遗弃的主要原因。 当一家人知道妇女怀孕时,至少有1/3的因妇女怀孕而被遗弃宠物。

这在以下基于证据的书《人类动物债券的心理学》中详细了解此内容。

11. Dog Gets Pregnant / 狗狗怀孕

Similarly, a pet may be relinquished after she unexpectedly becomes pregnant. As with many others, this reason for abandonment is also preventable, especially if pet owners were to spay and neuter their animals. Tragically, abandoned pregnant dogs and the puppies that they are carrying will often be put to sleep. Read more about this in the following peer-reviewed, research article, Human and Animal Factors Related to the Relinquishment of Dogs and Cats in 12 Selected Animal Shelters in the United States.

同样,宠物意外怀孕后可能会被放弃。 与许多其他动物一样,被遗弃的原因也是可以避免的,尤其是在宠物主人撒稀和绝育动物的情况下。 可悲的是,被遗弃的怀孕狗和它们所携带的幼犬通常会”安乐死”。

在以下经过同行评审的研究文章《与美国12个选定的动物收容所中的猫和狗的放行有关的人畜因素》中,了解有关此内容的更多信息。

12. Travel or Vacation / 旅游或度假

Another fact that we found in our research is that pets are abandoned during the summer months more often than during any other time of the year due to people traveling for extended periods of time to places in which they cannot or do not want to take their pets.

我们在研究中发现的另一个事实是,由于人们长时间旅行到无法或不想带宠物的地方,因此在夏季,宠物被丢弃的频率要高于一年中的其他任何时间。

Instead of paying to board their dog while they are traveling, or choosing locations and dog-friendly hotels instead of those where pets aren’t allowed, sadly, owners may choose to abandon the animal instead.

不幸的是,主人没有选择在旅行时付钱给他们的狗,也不愿选择不允许宠物的地方和对狗友善的酒店,而是选择放弃动物。

13. Dog Grew to Be too Large / 狗长得太大了

Top 13 Reasons Why Owners Abandon Their Dogs Surprisingly, this is a very common reason for pet abandonment that we found was reported in several peer-reviewed articles. These surveys have ex-owners mention that they had to give up their dog(s) because they didn’t plan for the animal to become so large and were ignorant of the breed. This and other owner reported reasons for relinquishment of pets can be found in a detailed article, Owner Attachment and Problem Behaviors Related to Relinquishment and Training Techniques of Dogs.

业主弃狗的13大理由令人惊讶的是,这是宠物弃宠物的一个非常普遍的原因,我们在几篇同行评审的文章中都发现了这一原因。 这些调查的前主人提到他们不得不放弃自己的狗,因为他们没有计划让这种动物变大并且不知道该品种。 该所有者和其他所有者报告的放弃宠物的原因可以在详细的文章中找到,

Many, if not all of the reasons owners report as the cause for their abandonment of their pets illustrate why it is imperative that all individuals who wish to adopt a dog research the behaviors, needs, size, costs and requirements of owning the specific breed that they wish to adopt, and carefully consider all of these things, as well as where they live and if it is suitable for the type of dog they want to adopt, as well as whether or not they have enough time to dedicate to the pet, before adopting it. By doing so, less pets will end up traumatized and living their life in a shelter.

许多(如果不是全部)原因,主人报告为放弃宠物的原因,这说明了为什么所有希望养狗的人都必须研究拥有该特定品种的行为,需求,大小,成本和要求 他们希望收养并仔细考虑所有这些事物,以及他们的住所,是否适合他们要收养的狗类型,以及他们是否有足够的时间奉献给宠物, 在饲养宠物之前。 这样较少的宠物将遭受创伤,并在庇护所中终老生活。
