It’s that time of year that you can give extra attention to your pets.
Did you know that most United States households have at least one pet? More households have dogs than cats but not by much. Pets also include reptiles, birds, rats, and fish. Whoever is your pet, we want you to enjoy spending a little extra time with them on National Love Your Pet Day.
The benefits of being around pets are endless but here are a few of our favorite reasons to consider:
- Lower your blood pressure
- Stress relief
- Many pets help keep the floor clean of food
- Great for cuddling, unless your pet is a fish
- They cover for you during a flatulent moment
If you are pet free on National Love Your Pet Day and are thinking about getting a pet, we highly recommend a rescue pet. Check out these top reasons.
This is your chance to save a life.
Over 2.7 million dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States. You will gain a great companion. These animals are happy, loyal and ready to be with the perfect family.
Fight the puppy mills and save money.
The low adoption fee covers vaccinations, spay and neuter and many times the animal is already housebroken.
Change a homeless animal’s universe.
A rescued pet is amazingly grateful.
You need to improve your selfies.
We all know you take selfies in front of just about anything. A selfie with your rescue pet will get you the likes you deserve!
