Pets are an important part of the lives of many Arnold residents.

Their unique ability to add companionship, fun, and affection bring both mental and physical health benefits to their owners. Pets reduce stress and anxiety, ease loneliness, encourage exercise and playfulness, and even improve cardiovascular health. Perhaps most importantly, though, pets can add real joy and unconditional love to many person’s lives.

If you or your family are interested in adopting a pet, check out the City of Arnold Pets for Adoption page.
