shelter pets in need
Each order helps pets in need
The United States is a nation of animal lovers, and the statistics on pet ownership and pet care spending in the U.S. prove that no matter who we are, Americans consider our dogs, cats, and other animals to be a part of the family.
One segment of the American population is seeing an especially large increase in pet ownership numbers: Hispanics.
The website packagedfacts.com has recently released a study on pet owner demographics which shows that between 2007 and 2016, pet ownership in Hispanic American households has grown from 11.4 million to 20.4 million.
The study finds that pet ownership increases with acculturation, noting that the majority of Latino pet parents in the U.S. are English-dominant or bilingual, and many are U.S.-born.
The growth rate will continue to be impressive, with the report estimating that between 2016 and 2021, Latinos will account for around half of the growth in U.S. pet ownership numbers. What are some other interesting facts from the survey?
