Adopt a Pet
But there are plenty of things we ask you to consider first, for one simple reason - we want to find permanent and loving homes for the animals we receive.
So while we'll ask you questions, it's all for a greater good - ensuring quality of life for both you and your pet. We'll work with you to select a pet that matches your personality and lifestyle and provide you with the resources you need to keep everyone happy.
After all, pets have been shown to
- Improve one's health. Pet owners are more physically active, have lower stress levels, lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, and are more likely to survive a heart attack. Pet owners also tend to rehabilitate faster from physical or psychological illnesses.
- Enhance life for seniors. Caring for a pet cat can reduce a person's loneliness and depression, and provide a sense of purpose and responsibility that engages a senior in day-to-day activities.
- Benefit children. Children who have pets tend to be more sociable, less selfish, and more self-reliant. Pets also serve as a great audience when a child is learning to read.
- Build strong personal relationships. The bond that develops between people and their pets creates companionship, fosters a feeling of well-being, and builds healthy family relationships. It also tends to increase a person's confidence and improve their performance.
