Three reasons why every family should consider adopting a pet

Pets can encourage healthy habits, boost wellbeing, and teach important life lessons to family members of all ages!  We’ve created a list of some of the best reasons why every parent should consider adopting a family pet:

  1. Studies show that children who grow up with pets are less likely to have allergies and asthma. We’ve also compiled a list of other health benefits of cat ownership.
  2. Having a pet helps children understand responsibility through helping with care, such as brushing the pet, feeding, and cleaning up. Check out our FREE coloring book about responsible pet care – download here.
  3. Pets, especially dogs, encourage children to be more active through outdoor play, such as playing fetch, hiking, or taking walks. Need more ideas for ways you can exercise with your dog? Click here!
