Adopting a pet is not only good for the life of an animal in need, it’s also good for your health!
Just think, in 2014 enough shelter animals were killed to equal the amount of people living in the state of Oregon–3.8 million! 70% of dogs in these shelters never find a home and are euthanized instead.
Even if that doesn’t tug on your heart strings, the effect adoption has on your heart will still be felt. That’s because owning a pet has proven effects in lowering cholesterol and blood pressure. It helps your family develop and improves the family mood. If you’d like to learn more about adopting a dog, be sure to contact Snowflake’s Dog Rescue at (727) 215-3489.
