Did you know that if you're looking to fill your home with the love of a pet that you can adopt just about any pet from a shelter? From birds to guinea pigs to reptiles to puppies, kittens and older pets.
While shelters may have only catered to dogs and cats in the past, it appears they are now opening their doors to any and all pets that are being abandoned, lost their homes, or for myriad other reasons.
As we celebrate October as Adopt a Pet Month, here are seven reasons you should adopt:
- Pets offer unconditional love. Unlike human children, pets don't go through the terrible twos or the teenage years when they believe they know everything and you know nothing and they never ask to borrow money or the car!
log while petting your dog or cat lowers your blood pressure. Snuggling up on the couch with a pet on your lap is the best stress reliever I can imagine.
While this may seem a tongue in cheek post, there is nothing I am more serious about than pet adoption. Our home is filled with seven pets (one dog and four cats that were adopted from shelters) and they have filled the house and our hearts with love from day one.
We'd love to see pictures of your adopted pets and hear your adoiption stories.
