    How pets have played a role in Addiction Recovery

    Mon Jun 22, 2020 9:36 am

    Hi everyone,

    A topic that perhaps many people will relate to is the role that pets have played during addiction recovery.

    Let us know how your furbaby or pet has helped you during this process, for some people pets have been a life changer.

    We will also be chatting about this live tonight as part of our "Monday Meetup" at 8pm AEST so feel free to join us then also :)

    Hi! I have two cats, Leo and Rigby, three years old.
    Very different personalities. Rigby is like a rag doll, loves being cuddled whereas Leo is only interested in his food!

    I think pets are so important in peoples lives, they love you unconditionally and are always there for you.

    I’d be lost without them.

    Hi @Mez28 thanks for joining our Monday Meetup chat :)

    Cats are such beautiful creatures. Leo and Rigby sound adorable!

    I absolutely agree with you pets give us unconditional love, they can help us heal.
