How Pets Affect People’s Lives by Jessica Theis
Lots of people own pets. It is estimated that 74-96 million cats, and 70-80 million dogs are owned in the United States. Studies have shown that people who own pets live longer, have less stress, and have fewer heart attacks. Over 50% of all pet owners would rather be stranded on a desert island with their pet, not another person. This got me wondering; How People’s Pet’s Affect Their Lives. So, I went out into the community, and the Kentlands and asked people how their pets affect their lives. This is how they responded.
