National Pet Day

More than 65% of American households own pets - with cats and dogs being most popular. Here are a few of the benefits pets provide:

  • They listen, know when we need them, and never judge
  • Lower risk of allergies
  • Reduced anxiety and stress
  • Better heart health
  • Stronger relationships and social skills
  • Improved mental health
  • Better sleep quality
Reading offers some of the same benefits! Pair pets and books for better health-
Ocee library collects blankets and towels for dogs and cats waiting adoption at Atlanta Humane Society Mansell Campus. Look for the donation box in the library lobby. IF it's right for you, consider adopting or fostering a cat or dog from one of the area's rescue groups.
