So, what type of pet do you get? Dr. Nancy Soares of the American Animal Hospital Association answers….and she LOVES the idea of adopting via a shelter or a rescue.
And how do you best integrate that new pet into a home? “t doesn’t happen overnight,” she says.
And the joy that rescued animal brings, “Well, I can’t even tell you,” she adds. One example, the way kids undergoing chemotherapy can associate with her dog with no hair. Each of her four dogs is different from one another, which teaches her kids, ‘It’s okay to be different.’
