Today, on the 13th December our teacher brought a host from Animal Rescue Cambodia and FOUR PAWS for a workshop that is about animal and pet ownership responsibility. These two organizations are trying to help abundant pet or wild animals but especially cats and dogs from being a stray. There are 5 basics need for pets: Suitable diet, Suitable environment, Protection from pain, injury & disease, the ability to express normal behaviors and protection from fear & distress. What are all of these 5 basics needs mean? Let start with suitable diet, pets should have a healthy food and fresh clean water. For a suitable environment, pets should have a proper shelter.  Protection from pain, injury & disease, the owner should bring the pets to the vet to give the injection and protect them from spreading any disease. Ability to express normal behaviors, once in a while the owner should walk the pet out and let them get a little bit of exercise. Lastly protection from fear & distress, the owners should give attention, love, and care as much as possible. After learning about these 5 basic needs for pets, we moved on to answering some question such as where are these street animal come from, What problem do they face, what problem does these street animal bring to the community, what action or solution can we take. Then we discuss dog and cat meat trade which these animal going through pain before being killed and eaten. The human who’s eat dog or cat have a high risk of getting the disease from the animal. Even Though there is a high population of dogs and cats but we shouldn’t eat them because they also have a life to live. If you saw an abundant animal that is sick please take action like bring some food and clean water, and possibly call any animal organization for help.
