2015 is finally here and many of you are thinking about your resolutions. There’s no need to think further because we’ve got one for you. What do you think of adopting a shelter dog? It will be a great start to the New Year. If you are not convinced why this should be your New Year’s resolution, here are some of the reasons to make it one:
The majority of shelter dogs in Mauritius were dumped or abandoned by their “owners”. By adopting these shelter dogs, you will help to curb the number of strays in the country.
Adopting a shelter pet will affect your life in a multitude of ways and will make it a better one. If you are feeling alone and looking for company then nobody can give you better company than your best friend. Let’s not dodge the medical benefits of having pets as company. Recent studies have demonstrated that having dogs as company helps to relieve tension. In one study, pets owners with high blood pressure who adopted a cat or dog had lower blood pressure readings in stressful situations than did people without pets.
Further, a shelter pet is one among the priceless gifts you can offer to yourself and to your family. In addition to this, adopting a shelter pet will save you money. You only have to pay an adoption fee and here you go to enjoy an infinite number of joyful days. Besides this adoption fee often includes vaccination, deworming and other duties! So you end up having a healthy pet.
Moreover, most of the pets found at the shelter have been rescued from the streets. By adopting these pets, you will be giving them a second chance and in life everyone deserves a second chance! Isn’t it?
So, Adopt A Shelter Pet And Enjoy A Daily Wooff Of Happiness!
