Frugal Forum Column and extras July 21

If you are thinking of a way to reduce stress in your life maybe pet ownership is the route to go. The benefits of owning a cat or dog can be rewarding for them but ultimately help you become healthier. It is hard to stay in a bad mood when a puppy jumps on your lap and just wants your unconditional love. Watching a kitten play with a ball of yarn can make you smile. Your pet will also encourage you to get out and exercise. Lexington is fortunate to have four dog parks that your animal can run and not endanger themselves or others. Check out for locations. When at the parks or even on a walk animals give you the opportunity to be social with other animal lovers increasing your network of friends. Pets are there for you in ways people can’t. They offer love and companionship, keep secrets, and are excellent snugglers. Throughout the month of July the Lexington Humane Society is offering special cat adoption prices. Visit their facility on 1600 Old Frankfort Pike to observe the animals or you can even check out the animals online at When you are trying to budget for your family, pets can be another expense that you don’t need but want to have. There are many ways to get affordable care for your animals along with coupons for food.
