Pet appreciation week is a time to celebrate how much our pets mean to us!
Our pets do a lot more for us than provide unconditional love. They help us relieve stress, and encourage us to exercise. According to the Centers for Disease Control, pets can decrease your blood pressure, lower your cholesterol, and increase your opportunities for socialization.
