10 Considerations for Adopting a Pet from an Animal Shelter
Your four-legged friend will make a point of waiting at the door or gate to greet and welcome you home when you arrive back from work. This is a habit with both cats and dogs. They may not be interested in how your day went but it's nice to come home to a show of affection.
Their attention and enthusiastic love gives hours of much pleasure to their new owner. This is especially appealing to people who live alone. Pets also make a great companion to people of the older generation who have lost a lifelong partner. A pet will never replace a beloved wife or husband but it's the next best thing.
