11 Places Where You Can Adopt A Pet In Lebanon

@animalslebanon | @betalebanon

Pets at home can be a source of joy and mood booster. They are also our best companions. Studies have shown that pet owners are in general happier persons.

Pets have actually quite a bit to teach humans. From unconditional devotion and loyalty to affection and playfulness, pets are our best teachers in that, if not great role models.

In addition to that, they lighten our mood and that of our surroundings, they are what we need to distract us from our worries even if momentarily, and, they make us smile and laugh at any time.

Experts said that watching videos and images of pets has healing power on humans. Imagine what they can do when we have them in real life in our homes.

For those who are up to it, there are several places in Lebanon where you can adopt a pet for free. If you are still hesitating, give any of these places a visit and get more information on site. You might consider fostering before deciding.
