YOU GET TO FEEL THE MAGIC OF THE MEETUP

Have you ever experienced the magical feeling of being in-love? It is said that when you meet an animal for the first time and that animal has formed a connection with you, there is an explicable bond that forms and you just know, this animal is meant to be with you. The bond is also reported to be deeper when that animal is from a shelter or a rescue; maybe because you know that taking that animal as your pet means that you will be giving it a better life. Some describe it as some kind of paternal or maternal instinct that makes you want to take care of another creature and love it as your own.

YOU WILL SAVE A LIFE

I read the news a while ago, a blind middle-aged man owns a dog to guide him in his daily activities outdoor. One day they went to a park and the dog kept barking at him, the man still tried to walk forward. A man passed by and told him that the road is blocked due to construction. He might be lost his life if without the dog that day.

YOU WILL BE PHYSICALLY HEALTHIER

Do you know that children who grew up in homes with pets suffer from fewer allergies? Yes! Growing up with pets can minimize the risk of developing allergies — and we are just getting started. Depending on what kind of pet you have, you are in for an array of benefits. For dog owners, tend to become more physically active and thus, have a lower risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. If they do happen to already have those conditions, having a pet like a dog can help them get more active and decrease their stress levels too. It’s not just dogs either. All kinds of pets will benefit you with their power to simply turn off your stress switch.

YOU GET TO HELP YOUR LOCAL SHELTER OR ANIMAL RESCUE

All over the world, pet rescues and shelters are filled to the brim with pets who have no other place to go. We all know how life will usually end up for them if no one comes to make them a part of their family. Adopting a pet, no matter how small is a big help to the community.

YOU WILL BE FRIENDLIER

People who have pets come as friendlier and more approachable. If you’ve been to a park or just chanced to see some dog owners in the street, they tend to congregate and look like life-long friends, even if they have never met each other before. That’s because a common interest brings people together and everyone loves cute furkids!

YOU WILL HAVE A BETTER LOVE-LIFE

Having a better love life is indeed one of the benefits of adopting a pet; however, you have to remember that getting a pet should be something you really want and not just a temporary thing to be a guy or girl magnet.
