23 million American households acquired a pet during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a new survey conducted by the ASPCA, most will not consider rehoming their pets.
The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) released new data from a nationally representative poll of 5,020 respondents confirming that close to one in five households acquired a cat or dog since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. This accounts for approximately 23 million American households! The vast majority of these households still have their new fur babes — 90 percent for dogs and 85 percent for cats — and are not considering rehoming their pet in the near future.
