Befriending animals is always a good thing, no matter how old you are. In fact, it’s been shown that children who grow up around animals turn out to be kinder and more conscious adults!

We completely understand that people might not have the time or space for a dog or cat. Luckily there’s a great way for kids without pets to develop a good relationship with animals without contributing to animal cruelty. Instead of going to the zoo, go to an animal sanctuary!
