For all of our dog lovers out there we want to highlight the love we have for pups this month! Owning a dog is one of the most rewarding experiences. They are so loyal, always greet you with excitement, and give the best at cuddles and kisses. There is nothing like having your own pup and they surely show their appreciation for all of the love and attention you give them.
Plus, did you know that owning a dog comes with benefits?
- You’ll exercise more
- You experience less stress and anxiety
- You’re less likely to feel depressed
- You’ll have a healthier heart
- You feel safer
- Your kids will be more empathetic
- Your dog can detect certain types of cancer
- You have a more active social life
- You’ll be happier
Not only do you benefit from owning a dog, but dogs benefit from having an owner! Now, of course, we wouldn’t stop you from purchasing a puppy, as long as you did your research and that puppy is coming from a good home; but there are so many adorable puppies and dogs who live in shelters. Each and every one of them deserves a life outside of a shelter. Adopting a dog can save its’ life, open space in a shelter for another animal, and will change that dog’s whole world! Unfortunately, there are approximately 3.3 million dogs nationwide who end up in shelters each year. While we would love to adopt all of them, this simply isn’t possible. We can, however, give them the best shelter life possible by donating supplies to animal shelters with the hope that one day they will have a home for life! This month’s campaign focuses on making dog toys for shelter dogs and we hope you will check it out if you haven’t already! Showing kindness to animals is just as important as showing kindness to people, so get out there and do a kind act for a dog this month!
