Millions of New Year’s resolutions are made every January. Lee County Domestic Animal Services (LCDAS) invites you to make pets a part of your New Year’s plan and consider that a new pet can help you achieve many of the most popular resolutions made each year.
Get Fit/Lose Weight/Be Healthy: In 2011 you can make this resolution finally stick by adopting a dog as a work out partner. Many dogs at the shelter are waiting for new owners that want to walk, jog, or run every day.
Reduce Stress: There’s no better stress reducer than the companionship of a devoted pet. Research has shown that contact with animals has many health benefits.
