Our aim is to promote animal welfare, reduce the number of pets rehomed each year and champion responsible knowledgable pet ownership. We help pet owners when they need it.
Borrowers get the pet companionship they are searching for. Dogs especially get more exercise, meet other dogs and love more playtime, to allow people without a pet to spend quality time with their favourite pet. Even before deciding to own one themselves.
Pet sharing is great for a family and children to borrow a pet before they take on the responsibility of pet ownership.
Everyone benefits especially our furry friends. Live Love Pet.
In line with the advice from www.pethealthcouncil.co.uk.
Pets can play an important role in people’s lives and they are often referred to as ‘one of the family’. As well as providing a constant source of enjoyment, friendship and fun, many pets thrive in a family and household environment. In their recent journals on the topic The Pet Health Council list over two pages of benefits to children, families, single people and the community.
Children in dog owning families also have more traditional values, better academic achievement and greater respect for their parents. I often witness positive attitudinal changes in young people following the introduction of animals to their lives. In learning to care for the animal, they are also acquiring foundation skills required for parenting. In addition, passage through the teenage years – a difficult time for many – is facilitated by a relationship with a non- judgemental, ever supportive animal friend in whom one can confide fears and worries
The animal magic goes beyond the therapeutic and educational to bring significant physical health benefits too. One of the more obvious benefits is that of exercise – dog walking or playing with a cat is a great way for people to burn a few more calories. This is particularly important when lifestyles are becoming increasingly sedentary and obesity is a growing issue, for children and adults. Many families are now acquiring pets to encourage children, especially boys, to spend more time in the “real”, rather than the “virtual” world.
