From dogs to cats, bunnies to guinea pigs, animals make excellent companions. Smart and sensitive, animals can form strong bonds with humans and truly become part of your family. Studies have also shown that having an animal in your home can support emotional wellbeing and reduce stress.
In Macao, animal charities and shelters have rescued a growing number of abandoned or abused animals that are all in need of forever homes.
