2021-04-08 14:34:42休斯顿消费指南


以领养代替购买,做一辈子的好朋友。


这个周末,不少猴子屯的小伙伴应该都会想去小动物收容中心看一看。59边上的BARC animal shelter明后两天领养费全部减至$1,收容所里所有喵星人和汪星人都参加。



领养费里包含了绝育手术、疫苗、一年的宠物证和追踪芯片,价值近百的package现在只要1刀就能拿下,是真的很划算。

BARC是休斯顿官方的小动物收容中心,按照规定必须接受任何一只被送上门的小动物,无论品种、性格或是年龄,所以这里喵星人和汪星人的选择异常多。

同时,来者不拒也造成了BARC“狗”/“猫”为患的问题。目前,只能容纳550只小动物的收容所里挤满了720只等待领养猫猫狗狗。BARC不定期会举行减免领养费的活动,感兴趣的小伙伴们可以在社媒上关注他们。

不过,这次1刀领养的活动应该是最低价了,其中汪星人的1刀领养活动仅持续周六和周日两天,喵星人的则一直持续到9月。

领养宠物的常见问题科普

如果对从shelter领养宠物还有问题,请看下面这份Q & A,感谢微论坛(moonbbs.com)粉丝@隔壁家的猫的分享。也欢迎留言告诉小编,我们一起讨论!


1. Q:shelter有没有纯种猫狗?


   A:shelter有各种体型,大小,品种的宠物。大约有25%是纯种的。当然也会被很快的领养。ps,mix的狗狗遗传疾病携带更少更健康聪明哦。

2. Q:shelter为什么要收费领养?不应该是免费吗?

   A: shelter一般是不享受政府津贴的,shelter运营所需的费用都来源于私人捐赠和领养费。当你拿到领养的狗狗的时候,减免了买狗的费用不说,你已经节省了绝育费,疫苗费,体检费甚至是行为训练费等等。


另外,你的领养费也会造福于其他还在shelter等待的猫狗。(backyard breeder最常说的就是:如果你连花钱买狗的钱都不愿意出的话,怎么证明你爱狗。对这种说法我就一个字:呸!)


3. Q:shelter的狗狗是不是都是因为和baby,家庭成员相处不好或者是因为不听话,咬人才被遗弃的?


   A:no。首先资料显示,shelter里面迷路的动物是被遗弃动物的两倍。另外,有些动物是在为主人的错误买单。离婚,生孩子了,没时间了,没有好好训导致到处nnbb等。二手狗不代表二等狗!


多数shelter在接受新狗狗的时候会对他做一个行为评估,然后提供给你有关于你将如何来训练狗狗的信息。感谢一些工作人员和志愿者,他们可能会帮助你完成狗狗的house broken和basic obediance的训练。

4. Q:shelter的volunteer或者工作人员可以提供给我哪些信息?


   A:狗狗的历史,来源,吃得如何,大小便如何,身体情况,喜好,行为特点,性格,跟别的狗相处如何,喜欢别的狗吗?喜欢猫吗?喜欢小孩吗?可以off leash吗?
举几个例子:

  • What do you know about this dog’s history? Where did he come from? Was he surrendered by a guardian, found as a stray or transferred from another shelter?

  • If he was surrendered by his former guardian, may I see the intake information? Most shelters ask people surrendering an animal to provide detailed information about the pet, including his medical history, likes and dislikes, and behavioral characteristics.

  • Did you conduct a behavior evaluation on this dog? If so, what were the results?

  • What have you noticed about him since he’s been at the shelter? How would you describe his personality and behavior? Does he like other dogs? Does he like children? How is he with cats? Is he easy to walk on a leash? What do the volunteers think of him? Is he affectionate, aloof, calm, energetic, fearful, shy, outgoing…? Ask any and all questions that are relevant to your particular needs

一般来说 ,志愿者都会诚实地回答你的问题。

5. Q:观察感兴趣的狗狗一般来说观察哪些方面呢?

   A:

  • Look for signs of friendliness, like pawing, wagging, wiggling, an eager approach and pressing against the front of the kennel.

  • If you have a family with young children or an active lifestyle, you may want to steer clear of dogs who hang back in their kennels, too afraid to greet you or others. Some fearful dogs take a lot of work, may not adapt well to your home and may snap or bite if they feel threatened.

  • If you don’t have children, don’t rule out a dog you’re interested in just because he’s shy. Keep in mind that you’re seeing him in a very stressful environment and that most dogs behave better in a home than they do in a shelter. Perhaps the shy dog just arrived at the shelter and is upset by all the commotion. Ask to visit with him outside of the kennel area so you can get a better idea of who he really is.

  • Like dogs who retreat to the back of their kennel, a dog who’s jumping, barking or spinning like a maniac in his kennel may just be reacting to the stress of shelter life. It’s a good idea to visit with such a dog in a calmer area. While you’re interacting with him, note whether the dog seems calmer and friendlier once out of the kennel area.

  • If a dog freezes, stares at you stiffly, growls or raises his hackles, move on. These are all signs of an unfriendly and possibly aggressive dog.

6. Q:如果我对品种有要求,是不是只能找breeder购买了?


   A: rescue也有针对专门的breed rescue。shelter最常见的是 chihuahua, American pitbull terrier和labrador retriever。别的品种需要经常去逛。breed rescue可以提供机会让你foster一段时间,而且他们对特定的品种更了解。
