COM 212 Outline Speech Topic: Adopt don’t shop – ending puppy mills in America Audience Information: My professor and classmates. The audience is going to be diverse, both male and female and span across a large age range. The audience will be from all over the country and will all have different views on animal welfare. Some will be animal lovers, some will have no attachment to animals. General Purpose Statement (To inform, persuade, or entertain your audience): This speech is being used to persuade the audience to adopt their new best friends instead of purchasing them. Social and Cultural Considerations for your audience: Due to the fact that people will be from various different backgrounds, they could have different views on puppy mills and animal rights. Some families have never had a pet therefore do not understand how they become another member of the family and are not merely just an animal. Also some people care more about social statue than they do about doing what’s right therefore they would prefer to purchase designer dogs instead of adopting mutts. Ethical considerations for your audience: Promoting animal welfare is the major ethical consideration. Also this speech should not pressure anyone into adopting a pet especially if they aren’t ready to or equipped to do so, it should merely persuade them to adopt not shop when the time is ready. This speech should also not make anyone feel bad for purchasing a pet but inform them on why next time it would be better for animals as a whole and society if they would adopt. Are there different tones or approaches that should be used with your audience? This will be a relaxed almost conversational speech. The tone will be friendly. I will need to remember to keep it light and relaxed as this is an area I am very passionate about and I volunteer and fundraise for my local shelter. It’s easy for me to get passionate and angry when I speak about puppy mills so I will have to keep calm.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
