7 Reasons We Love our Pets

There’s nothing like getting home after a hard workday and being greeted by your furry friend who thinks you’ve been gone way too long. Tails wagging, happy purring, it’s our favorite! Pets truly are our best friends.

While we may never truly know exactly what our pets are thinking, it’s safe to say that they don’t regard us merely as food dispensers. Pets form strong attachments to their caregivers, they love us and we love them!

This National Love Your Pet Day, a handful of GreaterGood.org team members shared why they love their pets.

“I love Cody because he is the greatest snuggler and adventure buddy … even if he kicks me in the face all night.”—Dafny, Director of Digital Donor Engagement
