The Pet Effect is an educational campaign to raise awareness of the health benefits of pets and to encourage veterinary and other pet professionals to understand their role in promoting the benefits of the human-animal bond.
Needless to say, this is an issue very near and dear to my heart.
I am a passionate supporter of “Adopt, Don’t Shop” and, because of my work with dogs and owners as a canine massage therapist, I have the honored position of working with dogs and their owners as a team. We often focus on quality of life for the dog. In many cases, the quality of the dog’s life is a direct consequence of what is happening in their human family and vice-versa.
I really like the Pet Effect’s latest video – Adopt a Human – because it puts a different perspective on adoption.
