Eight of 10 Spanish youngsters say they would be prepared to give their toys to their family pet, and 94% say they ‘feel happier’ when they are in the company of their animals.

A study by the Affinity Foundation on the emotional ties between children and pets in Spain has shown that six in 10 youngsters say they believe spending time with animals helps them to learn to love and respect people more, and nine in 10 would be happy to give up part of their time to look after their cat or dog.

Three-quarters say they would be prepared to get up earlier than usual to feed their cat or walk their dog, and 80%, when asked if they would be willing to give up one of their toys for a pet to play with said they would do so.
