Uncertainty about the future, stress, anxiety, loneliness and just the blues — Living through the Coronavirus pandemic is taking a toll on everyone. And, one such way to tackle these mental issues is by finding a forever furry friend. There has been a rise in adoption of pets during the quarantine even in Bollywood. Many celebrity homes have welcomed a new furry member and we are so here for it!
Many studies have shown that strong pet-owner bonds serve as the greatest stress relief but even brief encounters can improve your stressed mind. So, if you can't adopt, try to make as many four-legged friends as possible!
The many reports about pets being abandoned during the beginning of the lockdown had broken many hearts and irked all animal-lovers. So, as we adjust to the new normal, we are loving that animals are finding loving forever homes. Well, it's about time!
