Pet Adoptions Rose 17% In 2020... If You Adopted Do You Need More Space In Your Home?

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty

 

Pet Adoptions Rose Significantly In 2020

 

Nationwide, animal organizations found homes for almost 892,000 pets in 2020. With more people working from home, pet adoptions remain on the rise. According to a study by Porch.com, 83% of pet owners said their pet(s) improved their quality of life and reduced their stress during lockdown.

 

Wondering if more more dogs or cats were adopted? Cats beat out dogs by a very small percentage: 55% versus 54%. Wondering which states favored cats versus dogs? It seems to be an East versus West "thing." Dogs were favored on the East Coast, while cats were favored on the West Coast (except in Oregon).

Nina that is an amazing increase in pet adoption especially when you take into account everything this country went through with COVID-19 this past year.

Hi Nina Hollander - I did hear about pet adoptions being up but I didn't know the state breakdown.  Very interesting!

I was watching a news report last evening that highlighted the increased numbers of folks getting pets during this pandemic.  I do know that my two felines have made times of isolation much easier.

Myrl Jeffcoat hi Myrl... this increase in pet adoptions is a positive by-product of the pandemic... first for reducing the number of homeless animals in shelters and second for helping people feel less isolated.
