BBI 2417 - PS - Thumbs Up..Down...

This will be my speech later on, at 4p.m.
For my Public Speaking, Persuasive Speech, wahaha!
"A cat will look down to a man,
A dog will look up to a man,
A pig will look you straight in the eyes and see his equal."
"Life is life. Whether, in a cat, a dog, or even, a man, there is just no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for a man's own advantage."
"Non violence leads to the highest ethics which is the goal of all evolution. Until you stop harming all other living beings, you are still, savages..."
Ladies and gentlemen,
I'm ______ representing the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, (SPCA), Selangor, Malaysia, and I'm glad to have you here in my talk.
Before I start off with my talk, a very Good Afternoon to all of you here and I would like to take this opportunity to thanks you people for being able to spare your precious time in order to be with me here today.
For your information, SPCA Selangor is a 40-year-old-non-profit organization in the prevention of cruelty towards animals. This organization is active in the investigation and prosecution of mistreatment of animals and strives to educate the community about the humane interaction with animals. Our fund is from you, the public donation and we receive none whatsoever from the government.
At present, there are six SPCA organisations in Malaysia alone. The 80-year-old SPCA organisation in Kuching, Sarawak is the oldest, followed by the one in Penang, Selangor, Ipoh and Malacca. Recently, a new SPCA has just been registered in Johor.
SPCA has a vision, a vision that owners will take more responsibilities towards their companion animals and that, less and less animals will be surrendered and less strays will be brought to the SPCA Animal Home. In order for this vision to become a reality, we urge you, to do your part as a public by playing a vital role within your home and places of work. We need you to recognize your responsibilities to the animals around you.
Ladies and gentlemen,
We pledge NO-KILL. NO-KILL is an international movement started by the animal welfare organisation that believe that the community and owners must be responsible to their companion animals ; there are just too many unwated animals being abandones by owners (in shelter, on roads, and in SPCA or animals rescue organisations) ; animals are put to sleep (euthanasia, as a mean to keep the overpopulation down, a very horrible alternative used) ; owners must understand that their pets need to be spayed or neutered to control the overpopulation ; owners must know that SPCA can't afford to continue receiving animals and to keep them all. For your information, SPCA has been receiving just too many surrenders and only 10% get adopted annually.
So, how can you actually go about ending all these animal sufferings?
Ladies and gentlemen,
It really does not take much of your time just to end all these. All you will need to do, is just a few simple steps. The best way is to stop eating them (40 billions of animals are being slaughtered annually just for food!) ; refuse to wear animal (40 millions are being killed for fur, annually) ; don't dump animals ( help SPCA to reduce homeless pets and strays, animals don't deserved to be dumped like rubbish ) ; please spay or neuter your pets (unchecked breeding can lead to too many unwanted animals being produced which will eventually cause very sad ending) ; educate about animal exploitation ; get involved in animal welfare movement (volunteer-write and speak for animals) ; adoption ; donation.
Ladies and gentleman,
For once again, allow me to urge you to be a responsible owner by having the criteria of responsible ownership. There are several ways for you to do so! You can provide an adequate amount of food, shelter, medicine, or living space for your pet ; use a leash when your pet dog is out of the compound ; provide a loving environment for your pet ; be considerate to your neighbours.
Please, please do not hesitate to help us to help those who cannot speak for themselves. Put compasions into action. Get active!
With this, I end my talk.
Thank you!
