Healthy Pets Make Happier People

July 5, 2013

The health of your dog, cat or other domestic pet probably plays a key role in your daily life. The attention you pay to your devoted companion tells a lot about yourself. Indeed, some of us spend more time on our pets than we do for our own needs! Don’t know how many times I’ve thought how my beagle, Yogi, eats better than I do.

The doggies and kitties aren’t complaining about their special treatment, but make sure you give attention to your health as well. In most cases, people who keep their pets in shape also lead a healthy lifestyle. We care about the friends we depend on and the creatures around us. Some animals aren’t so fortunate. It can get downright sad and depressing reading or hearing about an abandoned or mistreated animal.

It’s easy to take care of the problem yourself if a pet in need happens to be in your neighborhood. We sometimes realize, however, how many other dogs, cats and furry friends are in trouble in areas everywhere. We wish we could instantly help, but it’s just not possible. That’s when outstanding animal charities come to the rescue. These charities are run by people who love animals and do everything possible to save and bring them back to health.

You probably know about some of these great people in your community through your local veterinarians or pet-friendly groups. There are also animal charities that provide life-saving services for pets throughout the country and all over the world. Local organizations can steer you toward the most reputable charities.
