The Pet Planet
Welcome to the Pet Planet! Why adopt a pet? For many reasons: companionship, love, fun, responsibility and perhaps a better sense of self and improved health along the way.
Owning a pet can lower a person's blood pressure. They can relax you by watching them play or stroking their fur. They can decrease the recuperation time of sick patients by giving them something to ease their pain and to look forward to. Pets are now often brought in to children’s hospitals and elderly homes to boost moral.
Watching playful pets can give you a great mood boost after a hard day and make you smile and laugh. If you long for someone to take care of and to be loved by they can fill that need as well. They can help you get exercise and play with you as well.
It is a proven fact that pet owners live longer than non-pet owners, plus pets help teach responsibility to kids.
|19945177 Meet mac, a 7 year old neutered male terrier and corgi mix. After 6 years his family was forced to give him over to the shelter, but that hasn't dampened his spirits. Mac is a very happy old man, and is still very playful. He has gotten along very well with other dogs at the shelter, and his previous owners say he even likes cats and kids!|
