Lovable Animal Friends for Your Children

Having a pet not only teaches children responsibility (a favorite reason among parents) but also compassion. Learning to love an animal unconditionally is a priceless gift we can offer our children. My 18 month-old son absolutely delights in our two cats. He laughs when he sees them, kisses and nuzzles them, chases after and waves to them. It's so precious, it melts my heart and always brings a smile to my face. Having a pet teaches our young ones to advocate for beings that cannot speak for themselves, and help them to become caring adults. If you (or anyone you know; friends, family, neighbors, coworkers) are thinking of bringing a pet into your home, please adopt! I've included a link that I strongly encourage everyone to look into. Pardon a Pet is an online program that lists animals in kill shelters on death row right now, with very little time left to live. Please participate in this program and help save animals whose only crimes were previous owners that couldn’t take care of them, and being unfortunate enough to end up in a “shelter” that will destroy them only because there is not enough room to keep them. Your son or daughter’s next best friend could have a clock above their head, counting down to their execution. This might sound dramatic to some of you, but I swear I am not exaggerating in any way.
