Ways to Participate in Transforming Our World

Sharing Your Pet as a Way of Transforming Our World

At the Animal Kingdom Foundation of Compassion, Care and Concern, we believe that human contact with animals and pets changes both the human and the animal, usually for the better.

If you are a pet owner and looking for a way to make a difference in your community, we recommend that you consider joining or starting a “pet sharing group”.

A pet sharing group can be small or large, but its mission is generally to make its members and others feel better by virtue of social interaction with each other and the groups pets.  Such a group could be formed by an informal gathering in a park or on a trail on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Groups could also choose to take their pets individually or collectively to nursing homes, grade schools or hospitals where permitted.  However you choose to structure your group, you will be making a difference in the lives of others by exposing them to the joy of unconditional love that only a pet can provide.

A few words of caution.

Always remember not everyone can or should interact with pets due either to allergies, health or mental status.  Use common sense when sharing your pets affection with others, but if you look for appropriate opportunities, you surely will find them.
