Welcome to PAW! (Pets of Arts Wellbeing)

It's hard to put into words the happiness that a pet can bring someone. You might be the one caring for your pet but they support and care for you in unspoken ways.

Whether it's a dog wagging their tail and greeting you at the door, a cat or bunny snuggled in your lap, or a bird singing to you, pets provide companionship and unconditional affection. The bond you share with a pet can do a lot to support your mental health.

You don't need to explain to a pet why you haven't left the house in a couple of days or why you haven't brushed your hair. You don't need to impress them with witty one-liners or solve problems for them. Pets love you without judgement and they're happy to be in your company.

When you’re not feeling great about yourself or you’re not up to interacting with people, pets are there for you. They’re great to talk to (perhaps because they can’t talk back) and they pick up when you’re not feeling 100 per cent. They often have a calming influence. And let’s be honest, they’re the only housemates you can’t stay mad at when they make a mess.
