Posted by Dana on February 27th, 2014

Does having a pet make you healthier? It sounds like that could be the case. We recently surveyed members of our pet adoption community about how they perceive their health and the impact their pets have on it. Well, the results are in and guess what? By and large, most of the pet-owning respondents think they are in good health and all of the respondents say having a pet has had a positive impact on their overall health – yep, that’s 100% of the people who answered the survey! Check out the infographic below that our friends at ZocDoc whipped up and join in the discussion on Facebook.  Tell us, how does your pet contribute to your good health?
