Pets for People with Allergies

Always wanted a furry friend of your own, but your allergies keep getting in the way? Never fear, there are many ways in which you can get around your allergies and have animals in your life.

Living with allergies is never easy, especially if you have a soft spot for animals. There are many ways you can care for animals from a distance, and there are also other little critters that are in need of loving homes that are completely safe for those of us with allergies.

Happily, some breeds of dogs and cats are considered hypoallergenic. While these breeds are safe for people with mild allergies to animals, no furry friend is 100% allergen free.
