Is Adoption Right For Me?
Why should I have a companion animal?
Well, if you aren't swayed by the unconditional love your companion animal will give you for the price of food, a bowl of water and a warm place to sleep try some science.
Companion animals are scientifically proven to:

Not to mention being utterly content curled up in your lap or just laying on the floor at your feet.
Why should I adopt a companion animal?
Most local animal shelters care for wonderful animals looking for a home. These animals are not always "difficult to care for or train". Many have just been neglected and assimilate into a warm and caring home.
The staff at these shelters know the animals in their care and can assist you in finding the right match for your personality and lifestyle. Helping you find a match that will last.
There is also a financial benefit to taking in a sheltered companion. Adopting an animal is less expensive than buying one from a pet store or breeder.
