Benefits of Dog Ownership
Research has shown that owning a dog can have a number of physical health benefits:

  • Increased cardiovascular health (lower blood pressure, lower triglycerides and in men, lower cholesterol)
  • Increased physical activity. Dogs especially help us get out and enjoy the outdoors while getting some regular exercise. They are great motivators and personal trainers, never wanting to miss a training session no matter the weather.
  • Growing up with a dog can help strengthen the immune system and may reduce the risk of childhood allergies.
  • Those who have pets including children or adolescents have been shown to have higher self-esteem. Teenagers who own pets have a more positive outlook on life and report less loneliness, restlessness, despair, and boredom.
  • Pets enhance social connectedness and social skills and are great conversation starters!
  • Pets are also great caregivers. They keep us company when we’re sick or feeling down. They can make us feel safe while we’re home alone and they keep an eye on the house while we’re out.

What else do I need to know?
Our standard adoption criteria and lifestyle screening applies to ensure it is a pawfect match! It can be costly to own a pet, so our expert staff will ensure that the decision to adopt a new family member has been thought through properly and the whole family agrees on the decision.

What will happen to these cats and kittens if they are not adopted?
AWL NSW does not place time limits on the animals in care, meaning our adoptable animals stay with us for as long as they need to before they are adopted.
