March 3rd is I Want You To Be Happy Day. (I know this is being posted on March 4th, but it’s never too late to make someone happy.) It is the perfect excuse to make someone smile. It can be as simple as wishing someone a good day, sending an ecard or letter, or other creative way to make them happy.
For example, what better way to make a loved one happy then adopting a pet? Check out local animal shelters to find the one that is right for your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, child, mother, father, sibling, or friend. Adopting a pet will not only make you and the receiver happy, it will mean the world to the lonely pet.
Dogs offer many health benefits ranging from stress relief to feeling lonely to motivating walking and exercise. If you can’t have a dog, a cat can also offer benefits such as companionship, responsibility, and cleanliness. Birds also make great pets, especially for older people because they are always there and are easy to care for. Small companion animals such as gerbils and hamsters also make great pets.
