difference between adopting ‘pets’ & humans

The ‘My pet is a rescue dog’ & telling the sad story of how the dog had been neglected and/or abused is extremely popular. Popular to the point where the pet industry is skyrocketing, likely increasing the number of pets exponentially {and the amount of destruction they cause to natural environments dislocating wildlife}. A decision to ‘rescue’ a suffering domesticated animal today is a decision to harm wildlife.
On the other hand, ‘rescuing’ orphaned kids is no where near as popular, and certainly doesn’t drive up the human population numbers like the pet industry does the domesticated dog numbers. Ironically, kids who are adopted are likely to breed less. Pets who are adopted drive up popularity making the pet breeding industry more lucrative.
