Benefit Of Owning A Family Pet

Do you remember the old saying, “A man’s best friend is his dog.” Not only is this true for man, but for a family as well. There are quite a few ways that having a pet can benefit your family. Inviting a cat, dog, goldfish or hamster into your family can be a wonderful experience for everyone involved.

You remember your first pet, don’t you? And you also remember the day when you first got it. Maybe your parents took you to the pound to pick out a pup. Remember how excited and happy you were. Then the dog licked your face and stuck out his paw; he melted your heart, didn’t he? This is no less true for families today. Yes, having a pet may start out as a gift for the kids who have been nagging you for months. But the truth is you and your spouse will start to love this new family member pretty quickly too.

Pets give unconditional love; always. They trust you’ll take care of them at every turn, and they take care of you. After a long day at work, you come home to find your pet waiting for you at the front door; excitedly jumping up and down at your arrival. They are a comfort to kids when sick; and to the old when infirmed. Some dogs even have a sixth sense when you are ill and unaware of the problem. They can sense danger; and guard you and your family when necessary. They instinctively know when they’ve been naughty, and look to you for forgiveness. They comfort you in time of need like no other human. They can sense sadness and, when you pass, they mourn.

There are so many pets that need love and attention. Unfortunately, all too soon pets arrive at home only to find they are neglected or mistreated. How sad for the rest of us.

If you have the room and the time, why not consider adopting a pet. There are so many animals out there who will be put to sleep unless we afford them the opportunity to live in a home with a loving family. They ask nothing, but give so much.
