The company of animals – whether as pets or service animals— can have a profound impact on a person’s quality of life and ability to recover from illnesses. A pet can be a source of comfort and can help us to healthier lives.
Nearly 70% Of U.S. Households (84.6 Million) Own A Pet. Of Those:
80% believe their pets bring them happiness and emotional support;
55% believe their pets reduce anxiety and depression; and
66% believe their pets relieve stress.
