Feeding and caring for a pet encourages childhood responsibility. Children with pets display improved impulse control, social skills and self-esteem.
Kids with pets get outside more—to go for walks, run and play—and enjoy all the associated health benefits.

Even kids with no exposure to animals or nature in their home environment can see, feel, touch and make connections to the wide world of animals.
A pet brings increased sensitivity and awareness of the feelings and needs of others—both animals and humans.
