A Celebration of Pets and How They Enhance Our Lives  

May is National Pet Month, a time to reflect on the importance of pets and pet ownership.  During all of May, pet stores, veterinarians, and pet lovers are all promoting the benefits of pet ownership, pet adoption, and the value of companion animals. Pets bring a lot of joy into people’s lives. However, like so many of life’s everyday joys, it’s easy to take pets for granted.

Promote the Benefits of Pet Ownership

Science can’t measure the happiness that a pet’s love brings to its owner. However, it can measure the positive effects that owning a pet has on a person. For instance, did you know that medicine is less effective in controlling blood pressure than pets are?  Or that it has been proven that pets reduce stress?
