Pets in Nursing Homes
I wonder if anyone knows how many nursing homes have pets?
I think having dogs or cats can definately make the residents happier. I have read many stories about how pets have given nursing home residents a new outlook on life.
I just wonder how many places do this...I am guessing not very many as there might be concerns over allergies, possible scratches from the pet, who is in charge of feeding them, vet bills, etc.
