February is American Heart Health Month, and what better way to make your heart happy than with the love of a pet? Studies have shown that pets can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and provide a sense of purpose and joy. Whether it’s the comfort we feel from canine cuddles, the soothing purr of cats, or the quirky antics of critters that make us laugh, pets provide so many benefits to our cardiovascular health.
From February 8 through February 18, you can adopt a dog, cat or critter (6 months or older) for just $14. Adoptions include spay or neuter, age-appropriate vaccines, and a microchip. Open your heart to your new best friend!
