Pets help us to stay connected with wildlife, even if we live in the middle of the city.
Pets can contribute to both physical health and emotional wellbeing. A pet can provide friendship for a lonely person, and a family pet can help to teach children how to be kind and caring towards others.
Keeping a pet is also a responsibility. An animal in the home will effectively become a member of the family, and should never be neglected or abandoned.
You must find out how to care for your animal properly, and always follow the basic rules of hygiene.
