Today our family celebrates rescuing our beautiful dog Diamond, only two years ago. They say dogs have a way of finding the people who need them and she found us at just the right time. There are so many reasons our family advocates for rescuing animals and Diamond is a beautiful example of how positively life changing it can be.
The role she plays for each one of us in our family has been truly therapeutic. She is calming for Anna, a playmate for Aidan, loyal to Dan, a walking partner for me and the list goes on. According to healthline.com, "Interacting with a friendly pet can help many physical and mental issues. It can help reduce blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health. It can also release endorphins that produce a calming effect. This can help alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve your overall psychological state."
The responsibilities of owning a pet are definitely an increase in your day to day life but the rewards are immeasurable. The comfort and companionship a pet offers to home can really strengthen a family bond.
We thought it would be fun to share a clip from our Camp Hello Gardeners video series where Gardener Anna shares our special story about how Diamond found our family.
