Research from social and medical sciences confirms that companion animals can and do improve health and overall happiness.Studies show that older people who own pets are more healthy and active than those who don't. Pet owners are less likely to suffer anxiety, loneliness and have more confidence than people without pets. Pets have a positive effect on your emotional health, and people who live alone with a pet are less likely to be depressed than those who live alone without a pet.

Help promote adoption of shelter animals by becoming a foster parent. Many animals do not do well in a shelter environment and would benefit from a transitional home before being adopted into their forever home. Medical and food expenses are typically paid for by the shelter. All you need to provide is a temporary loving home!
