Did you know?

Animal adoption can have a positive impact on your mental and physical health. According to Harvard Medical School, dogs can make people of all ages calmer, promote active lifestyles, ease stress, and, of course, provide companionship.

Before you adopt… the ASPCA recommends asking yourself the following:

  1. Do you have time for a pet?
  2. Can you afford one?
  3. Is your family ready?
