Do you love animals and pets? You’re not alone! A 2021-2022 survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) 70% found households own a pet. Among the 70%, there are 69 million U.S. households that own a dog compared to 45.3 million households that own a cat. According to Forbes 78% of pet owners acquired pets during the pandemic compared to only 17% of pet owners adopting a new pet before 2020.
Why do we love our pets so much?
Animals serve as a source of unconditional love, support, and comfort. They reduce loneliness, increase feelings of social support, and boost mood. Plus, pets decrease stress and anxiety, improve heart health and help children with emotional and social skills.
On today’s episode I’m talking with two animal experts who will share their passion for pets. My first guest is animal communicator, psychic, and medium Nancy Mello. Then I’ll be talking with pet therapy dog advocate Larry Grogan. They are going to help you learn how to better understand and connect with your pets and even inspire you to learn how to work with your pet to help others.
