Why Getting a Pet During the Pandemic is a Good Idea

There are so many animal shelters that have dozens of cats and dogs that need homes. While your kids are at home, maybe giving them a pet isn’t a bad idea. Even moms like Rachel Harow have considered it. Pets take a lot of responsibility but with children staying indoors to avoid exposure to the virus, it may be a great way to teach them.
If you have very young children, getting a dog that might have some behavior issues, isn’t ideal. However, with slightly older children, adopting an animal might be in their best interest. It can be very exciting and heartwarming to see children take care of their animals. Shelters are definitely struggling to support the animals they care for. Even by donating to local shelters, one can make a difference. Dogs and cats are a great gift for children because it teaches them acts of love and kindness. Rachel Harow has been looking at shelters to adopt a pet for her children because she knows how much joy it will bring them during the pandemic.
