Want to Be Loved? Here’s Who Can Give You That

Do you need some snuggles? Furry friends are great at that, plus, they’re shown to make people happier and healthier. If you feel like you’re ready for the commitment, you’ll be getting more than just company if you give an animal a good home.

If you really can’t afford to have a pet of your own, consider volunteering at a local animal shelter or working with a foster group. Those pets need care as well and can make you just as happy with their unconditional love.
