Speech 5: Proposition of Policy Comparative Advantage Name: Alexandra X Date: 10 August 2010 I. Introduction A. Attention Getter: In 2008, Philadelphia awarded its animal control contract to the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, PSPCA. According to Tara Murtha’s 2010 article in Philadelphia Weekly, after the PSPCA took over in January 2009, only 24% of animals entering the Animal Care and Control Building were saved. 76% were euthanized. In light of these current statistics, the Philadelphia animal shelter system can be seen to be in desperate need of revamping. This is the moment when the advisory committee will be entertaining multiple ideas for new animal control policies, one of which will be complete no kill policies in the city’s shelters. B. Term Topic Question and Preview: 1. Restate and answer your term topic question: Should the city of Philadelphia implement “no kill” policies for its animal shelters? No. 2. Preview your main points: During this speech, I will review the two existing solutions to the animal control problem, no kill and traditional shelters, and then I will outline a better policy involving increased pet retention programs and larger adoption initiatives. Transition: The real question behind my term topic question is this: What should be done about homeless pets in America today? II. Body A. Existing Policies: Main Point: The two current answers to this question take the form of traditional shelters and no kill shelters. 1. Sub-point: Traditional shelters, according to Maddie’s Fund, are those that have an “open-door” policy and, therefore, must accept all animals that are brought to them. With few exceptions, both the Humane Society and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals run traditional shelters. a. The main advantage of a traditional shelter is that it cannot turn away animals, so the owners who surrender them and people who turn in strays can be sure the shelter will take them all. b. The main disadvantage of traditional shelters is a result of this open-door policy, because traditional shelters are frequently overcrowded and, therefore, must euthanized some of their animals simply for space considerations. 2. Sub-point: No Kill shelters, according to Maddie’s Fund, are shelters that will not euthanized any animal for being unadoptable, unless the animal is too sick to be cured.
