All of us spending time at home means more time spent with our pets. In fact, pet adoptions across the country skyrocketed throughout the pandemic, and show no sign of slowing down.
While our fur babies, (or hairless babies or reptilian babies, whatever your preference), love all the extra time we’re spending at home, they’re not the only ones who have benefited. Whether they give you an excuse to get outside for a 20-minute walk, entertain the kids in the backyard while your Zoom conference call runs long, or listen to you share your anxieties about the future during a sleepless night – our pets give back to us in so many ways.
