How Saving a Pet Can Lift Your Spirit this Holiday

Christmastime has the potential to be a great source of joy for some, and a great source of loneliness for others. If you have children who are grown or if you live far away from loved ones, it becomes hard to say good-bye when the week and a half of holiday vacation is over.

Studies have found that having a pet can actually encourage and help seniors with their health – providing a friend and a comfort. This year, think about adopting a pet for Christmas. While you save its life, it might just be saving yours.

Check out the infographic below to find out exactly how a pet can improve your health:
