Humans have been keeping pets since ancient times. Pets have been shown to positively impact human health in many ways.
They lower blood pressure, they calm us in times of stress, they give us a reason to get up in the morning, and provide us with unconditional love. Our pets don’t care if we are having a bad hair day or are cranky from a difficult day at work.
Try not to adopt or purchase a pet on a whim or inspiration. Adding a pet to your family should be a deliberate, considered choice.
