Top 3 Reasons To Adopt a Pet From a Shelter

If you have ever considered adopting a pet, now is the perfect time. Rescue shelters and pet adoption agencies are filled to capacity and could use your help. Here are the top three reasons you should adopt a pet from a shelter today.

1. Pets Create A Happier Healthier You

It’s true that owning a pet can lower your blood pressure and provide you with more exercise, but did you know there are other physical and emotional benefits of owning a pet? The furry, feathered, or scaled friends give unconditional love that studies have shown benefits human emotional health by eliminating depression and lifting moods. A pet can also help you lose weight as they drag you on walks.

2. Pets Help Eliminate Overall Stress

That unconditional love your pet showers you with is filled with an unidentified neurochemical that your body responds to by sending mood-elevating hormones out called dopamine and serotonin. When you touch your pet, you may notice yourself calming, tension flowing from you, and a smile crossing your lips. As your body floods with the positive hormones, there is no place left for all the negative emotions of the day.

3. Pets Provide Purpose and Meaning to Life

Everyone needs a purpose in life, and sometimes people forget to look beyond themselves. Pets need your time, love, and attention; and as mentioned above, they love unconditionally. Adopting a pet can bring that purpose and meaning to your life. Heather Parry, the famous producer and director, believes so strongly in pet adoptions she has dedicated a social media page to the cause and posts there weekly.
Pets have so many social, physical, and emotional benefits that it is difficult to ignore the implications that they are good for you. Why not take the chance and find a furry, feathered, or scaled friend today? You may find yourself becoming less stressed, happier, and totally in love with your new friend.
