There is an argument against the owning of pets, but the fact is that we are responsible for pet overpopulation.
We are the ones responsible for taking care of these animals.
While living inside a home may not be an ideal environment for an animal, it is definitely a preferable alternative to an overcrowded shelter or euthanasia.
Anyone who has ever had a pet knows that they can quickly become a part of your family and greatly enrich your life.
Studies have found that owning a pet reduces stress, prevents heart attacks, and can even add years onto your life.
God created animals with the purpose to be companions for mankind.
Even though sin changed the arrangement in the garden, we still feel and observe our special bond with animals all the time.
