For the elderly, their pets are often their only companions in an otherwise lonely existence. If you have ever felt the nudge of a cold nose, listened to a contented purr, or felt the warm beat of their hearts, you know exactly what I am talking about. Scientific studies show us what we already know. Living with our pets helps us cope with a wide range of social and health benefits. Encouraging everyone to adopt from animal rescue groups and shelters means more permanent loving homes which is especially true in the case of seniors.
