Here's today's feel-good story:
Nearly 7 in 10 Americans say that they take better care of their pets than they do of themselves.
8 in 10 Americans also say that taking care of their pet encourages them to take better care of themselves as well.
According to respondents of the poll, pet owners say that pets help them to exercise and be more cautious of the food they eat.
“The results of this survey further emphasize what we already know to be true: our pets are our family,” said Stella & Chewy’s CEO Marc Hill. “The bond we share with them is strong, and our pets provide us with so much joy and emotional support on a daily basis. It is imperative that we reciprocate that love by showing them how much they mean to us, too.”
