Saturday we hoped to adopt a sweet pup or kitten in Amberg but unfortunately we were unable to. Many animal shelters near military instillations do not allow service members or their family members to adopt animals. For good reason. When we spoke to one of the workers at the shelter, she explained to us that to often have they had cases where the animal was either left stranded and found by a landlord or dumbed back at the shelter when the families had to go back stateside. She also noted how they like to keep the animals close so that they can periodically check on their well being;she stated that in American shelters stray animals can be euthanized as soon as 48-72 hours depending on the shelters capacity. Due to the
German Animal Welfare Act
animals can stay in a shelter until they are adopted or pass due to natural causes. http://www.drze.de/in-focus/animal-experiments-in-research/modules/animal-protection-act With Khalil and I now knowing this imperative information we understood and accepted why they were unable to let us adopt an animal. The day was not all bad though,right by the shelter was a Forest. My friend and I strolled and laughed a little as we took a few captivating photographs. Sometimes it’s the little things in life.Khalil and I did look and connect with a few kittens and dogs that we would have loved to give a loving home,but everything truly does happen for a reason. Germany treats their animals like first class citizens,like family,they truly appreciate animals and nature on a level that I’ve never experienced before. So uplifting and inspirational.
