And To Rover, I Leave Everything. 1 Million US Dogs Are Benefiaries Of Owners Will

Anyone who has a dog or any pet knows how much a part of the family they are.  Millions of dollars are spent on pets on any number of things aside from just food.   Houses, beds, toys, clothing, the list goes on and on.  It doesn’t stop there.  1 Million dogs are the primary beneficiaries in their owners will. I thought this was more isolated but this is a lot more common.

Pets have more status today. Compared to previous eras, there is currently much less hierarchical distance, and more equality, between parents, kids, and pets. More than 9 in 10 owners consider their pets to be members of the family, and 81% say pets are equal members of the family. Pet lovers themselves recognize that there has been a shift in the status of pets within families: 60% of adults say they don’t remember their childhood pets as having the exalted status the pets in their lives enjoy today.

Still need more proof? There are one million dogs in the U.S. that have been named the primary beneficiary of their owners will.   Source
