Pets are good for us!

Pets reduce stress and improve mood.

Having a loving companion animal reduces levels of the stress.

Cuddling with your pet for a few minutes every helps you stay happy.

Pets keep us active.

Pets need feeding, walking, and attention. Having a pet can help to keep you active. Even reaching and stretching to cuddle your pet can help maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Creating Caring Children

Having a pet can encourage empathy and caring in children.  It can also teach them responsibility

Companionship

Older people can suffer from loneliness. A pet in the house provides company.  Walking a dog is a great social outing for both owner and pet.

Overall, pets keep you active, happy and healthy!
