Have you been waiting for the right time to adopt a pet? The time is now, according to LifeHacker. Many shelters currently need volunteers to foster pets and free up resources. Pets also provide health benefits to their caretakers, including decreased blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels. In this time of social distancing, pets can also make people less lonely.
Before fostering a pet, consider how much exercise and space the animal need. Also consider how much time and experience you have for caring for a pet. Then call your local shelter!
