Find My New Buddy

Welcome to our “Find My New Buddy” page. Here you’ll find resources for all your pets’ needs. Plus services & support for seniors and people with disabilities. This page will help you care for your pets!

 

People who own pets, especially dogs, have been shown to be less stressed and require fewer visits to their physicians than non-owners. Life expectance for heart attack victims who had a pet have been shown to be 12% longer than for those who did not have one, according to one of the first studies dealing with the impact pets can have on our health.

Pet owners have also been shown to have lower blood pressure. The reasons for these findings are most likely related to an array of psychological factors, such as the facts that owning a pet decreases loneliness and depression, encourages laughter and nurturing, and stimulates exercise. Plus your pets never forget that you love them.

Just Love Me!
