KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Young-Williams Animal Center is reminding pet owners that animals can provide many health benefits.
Pets can offer companionship, support and more. Families can talk 20-30 minute walks with their dogs to help boost immune function, cardiovascular health and reduce anxiety. Cat owners can play with the pets by using a laser pointer, remote-controlled toy or a ball for 5-15 minutes a day.
Many pets are available to be adopted at Young-Williams, including Bones. Bones is a 1-year-old male American Pit Bull/Hound.
